The International Carwash Association’s annual event — The Car Wash Show™ — takes place April 6 through 8 at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center in San Antonio, TX. The show will again be staged in partnership with the Western Carwash Association and the Automotive Oil Change Association’s iFlex (International Fast Lube Expo). This year, a fourth party joins the partnership: the Midwest Carwash Association. The four organizations will share the tradeshow floor. Car washers and fast lube operators will attend separate though concurrent educational programming.

A pre-show program on Sunday, April 5 offers three seminars: a management fundamentals course, a new investor seminar, and an International Detailing Association “Certification-in-a-Day” event. A separate registration and fee is required for each of these presentations. Educational sessions for attendees at large commence at 8:00 a.m. the following day. A premium pass is required to attend premium sessions, the state of the industry report, and the keynote address; a basic pass is good enough for all other presentations. For detailed and the most up-to-the-minute information about the education available at The Car Wash Show 2020, visit www.TheCarWashShow.com and click Education.
Ben Nemtin will deliver the keynote address on Wednesday, April 8. Titled “5 Steps to Make the Impossible Possible,” Nemtin’s presentation prepares his audience to tackle the seemingly insurmountable by creating a digestible pathway to success. He is the author of the bestselling book, What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? and the star of the MTV show “The Buried Life.”
In all, The Car Wash Show offers attendees 17.5 hours of visiting time with exhibitors on the tradeshow floor, at 170,000 square feet the largest exhibit space ever in the history of the event.
