The 23rd Annual Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) takes place at the Trump Taj Mahal Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. The Connecticut Carwash Association hosts this year’s event that runs from Monday, October 1 through Wednesday, October 3.

A presentation by CarWash College, titled “Understanding an Effective Equipment Maintenance Program’s Impact on Your Bottom Line,” gets the event started on Monday afternoon. Attendees will learn how a preventative maintenance program can save between 12 percent and 18 percent over the cost of a reactive maintenance program.

Monday evening’s Welcome Reception offers an opportunity to network with peers and make new friends. The venue is unique: the Taj Mahal’s exclusive Signature Club. The club is located on the 49th floor of the Taj Tower, offering unsurpassed views of the Atlantic City Skyline.

The ever-popular Early Bird Panel Discussion takes place on Tuesday morning after which labor lawyers Dennis Lalli and Ray Pascucci of Bond Schoeneck & King will be on hand to guide conferees through the intricacies of labor law compliance in the car wash industry. They will also touch on a currently sensitive subject: unionization.

The keynote speaker on Tuesday is Perry Powell, who will do double duty as leader of a breakout session on Wednesday that will consider a host of issues including discount marketing, salespeople vs. ticket writers, bad employees, managing by rumor, and failing to audit and manage to your maximum potential. This session is preceded by a presentation titled “Steal These Ideas,” which explores what other industries are doing to best market their services.
