Car wash operators looking to innovate need look no further than The All New Convenience U CARWACS Show. Expect to discover the latest new products, meet up with new and established associates, and learn from the pros.

At this year’s event (September 28 to 29), the Canadian Carwash Association (CCA) has earmarked both days for insight and industry development.

DAY ONE: To kick things off, the CCA invites the industry to attend its popular Carwash Tour. This year the Tour will be held as a virtual event. 

According to Jennifer Hickey, event coordinator, CCA, this year will be the sixth annual Carwash Tour. “We are very excited to present our educational sessions and car wash tour in a virtual format. This will be an amazing opportunity to connect with peers and industry leaders. We have engaged some of Southern Ontario’s leading operators to show off their innovative services and products,” she says, mentioning Valet Car Wash, St Catharines; Rainbow Car Wash & Detailing, Hamilton; and Dry ’N Shine Auto Spa, Hamilton as the three locations for this year's tour. 

“Start your morning off with networking, then get a sneak peek into three car wash sites across Southern Ontario. We will be taking you through a virtual site tour, then you will get the opportunity to ask questions to the owners themselves,” Hickey adds.

Attendees can then learn about new products and meet industry professionals on the trade show floor. 

DAY TWO: Expect to continue discoveries and education with a slate of virtual panel discussions and a roundtable forum. Make plans to attend Chemistry 2.0: Get the Best Results From Your Carwash. Learn about chemical strategies and best practices from industry leaders, who will walk participants through the intricacies and challenges of chemical use with an eye toward solutions and enhancing profitability.

Don't miss: A Sustainable Future for the Carwash Industry: A Discussion. Join a highly experienced group of car wash operators in an interactive session that examines what sustainability may look like in the car wash industry as we move forward. Topics covered will include reclamation systems, lighting, solar power, and equipment.

“Some of the most experienced operators in North America will be here to answer any specific questions,” says Hickey, who invites the industry to join in this important discussion about creating a better future for car washes and their operators.

Attendees will, again, visit the virtual trade show floor to learn about new products and gain insights from industry professionals. 

Plan to attend Canada’s leading trade event for car wash professionals this fall. It promises to be a valuable accelerator to grow your business. 

We are thrilled to welcome the CCA to The All New Convenience U CARWACS Show, which is  Canada’s largest and best attended c-store, retail fuel and car wash trade event. Over the years it has earned its position because it consistently showcases innovation and creates a perfect setting for the industry to gather and network.

The All New 2021 Convenience U CARWACS Show promises to continue this tradition with highly engaging and interactive virtual platform that is among the first of its kind in Canada.

“These challenging times demanded a solution that allow people to gather as an industry,” says Ed Several, executive vice president-events & conferences, EnsembleIQ (EIQ), the operators of the show. “We have come up with a virtual model that checks all boxes for attendees and exhibitors. With the new format everyone across the country can gather at the show, virtually,” he says, adding that EIQ assembled a technology stack that its team then integrated to create a package that brings people together under a digital umbrella that delivers added value to both exhibitors attendees.

The ALL New Convenience U CARWACS Show takes place September 28-29, 2021.
