Sonny’s The Car Wash Factory, the world’s largest manufacturer of conveyorized car wash equipment, parts, and supplies, has announced free registration to the Virtual CarWash Expo, taking place April 6-7, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST.

“Our team at Sonny’s has rapidly created an online, virtual live and free tradeshow that will enable attendees to view and interact as if they are actually on site,” said Paul Fazio, CEO at Sonny’s. “Our goal is to share car wash knowledge with new investors and existing customers so they can learn and identify solutions for their car wash needs.”

The Car Wash Show™, scheduled for April 6-8 in San Antonio, TX, was cancelled due to growing concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19). Sonny’s team proactively went into planning mode for an option to go on-line.

Explaining that circumstances made attendance in San Antonio impossible, Kati Pierce, senior vice president at Sonny’s added, “But we also know, business must go on. We’re ready with a full two-day agenda, live presentations, and real-time Q&A to educate and discuss key topics and trends, and to provide a preview of what is to come from our company.”

This show is an opportunity for current car wash owners looking for new ideas, c-store or automotive dealers looking to generate more profit, or for those who are contemplating owning a car wash. To e-meet people and exchange ideas will only help in fostering success and support the industry as a whole.

The complete agenda is available at The event will include:


  • Sessions on key trends and business management
  • Presentations on how to get started in car washing, how to make money, and potential pitfalls
  • Keynotes from leaders and owner/operators including Paul Fazio, Anthony Analetto, Robert Andre, and Jim McClimond
  • Product innovations, demonstrations, and real-time Q&A
  • Panel discussions on industry topics including business management, chemistry, signage, lighting, and ideas to increase your average ticket
