The Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) takes place October 4-6, at the Atlantic City Convention Center. The event, postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic, is the second regional show since 2019, following the Southwest Car Wash Association event in June.
“The momentum is certainly building for our East Coast operators to once again meet in person, take part in some great education, and walk an expansive show floor,” said 2021 show chairman Dave DuGoff of the Mid-Atlantic Carwash Association, this year’s host.
A highlight of this year’s event is a seminar featuring industry “Titans” who will discuss where car washing is today. They will talk frankly about consolidation, equity partnerships, a dwindling labor pool, reimagined wash models, contactless payment, and more. The “Titans” include Sonny’s Paul Fazio, Simoniz USA’s Bill Gorra, Hoffman Development’s Tom Hoffman Jr., Amplify Car Wash Advisor’s Bill Martin, and International Carwash Association’s Eric Wulf.
According to DuGoff, the only COVID requirement at the 31st NRCC is mask wearing inside the Atlantic City Convention Center. “Our trade show venue is a state-run facility and as such we need to wear masks, but that is it, and we’re all used to that!”
