Yankee trade showWe have come to rely on the Internet for instant access to information that helps bolster our business. But sometimes online searches can’t replace face-to-face contact. That’s why we’re so committed to the annual Yankee Equipment St. Patrick’s Day Coin Laundry Trade Show. Click here to register!

The 41st annual event (March 16-17 at the Westin Hotel in Waltham, Mass.) is designed so you can take advantage of on-site financing options and special pricing on equipment, network with other people in the business and attend seminars that will keep you up-to-date on the latest technology and trends.

Trade shows contribute to the success of a business in three keys ways:

  1. New technology. Find what can reduce your costs and help run your business more effectively. Talk with representatives and take the opportunity to ask questions.The latest offerings from some of the industry’s leading manufacturers and vendors, including ESD, NATCO, Vend-Rite Manufacturing, CCI, Standard Change-Makers, Solomatic, SpyderWash, American Changer and Triad will be on display.
  2. Gain more understanding and insights into the industry, including best practices and strategies.We stress seminars that teach easy-to-understand equipment maintenance procedures, how to diagnose simple repairs and provide new ways to serve your customers. Attendees also enjoy discounts on equipment and on-site financing.
  3. By having face-to-face conversations, you can pick the brains of colleagues and industry experts, learn how to handle sticky situations, and learn about products that you may not be able find out through online research.

And what’s not to love about the traditional corned beef and cabbage lunch we serve both days of the show!

There are other trade shows worth marking down on your calendar, including The Clean Show (June 20-23 in New Orleans) presented by the Coin Laundry Association, and the Northeast Laundry Association’s annual NELA Spring Conference (May 1-2 in Providence, R.I.).

Without the support of these associations and others, including the Textile Care Allied Trades Association, it would be impossible to keep up with the latest technology and trends. The trade shows and conferences they put on are invaluable.

So, if you’re not sure if you should attend a trade show this year, take the leap. Your business will thank you.
