Exciting Events Coming Our Way (Moment with Mary)

Mary Scalco, DLI CEO

Clean 2019 will be in New Orleans June 20-23. While it’s still a ways off, preparation has already begun. The previous show, Clean 2017, was named one of Trade Show Executive’s50 Fastest-Growing shows.  Clean 2017, held in Las Vegas, was included in all three categories of the awards competition: net square feet of exhibit space, number of exhibiting companies, and total attendance. Trade Show Executivepresents the Fastest 50 awards annually to trade shows that have excelled in each of the three categories. Though 50 shows are named in each category, Clean 2017 is one of the few trade shows that exceeded the level of growth to be named in all three. Anyone who attended Clean 2017 would agree it was a fantastic show and we expect no less of the upcoming show in New Orleans.

New Orleans is a fun, food-loving, party city and DLI’s headquarters hotel, Hotel Monteleone is located right in the downtown Bourbon street area.  Hotel Monteleone is an historic landmark hotel with all the charm of New Orleans and all the amenities of a five-star hotel.  Even though your feet will be tired from walking the show floor to take in all the new products, working equipment, and live demonstrations Clean has to offer you won’t have far to go to enjoy beignets, beads, and “po boy” sandwiches.

Registration for Clean Show 2019 and the Hotel Monteleone are open, go to https://book.passkey.com/go/DLI2019to reserve your participation today.

But before Clean 2019, DLI has another not-to-be-missed event—the Five-Star Brainstorming Conference in St. Marrten in January 2019. DLI cosponsors this amazing conference with the National Cleaners Association (NCA).  This partnership allows us to present outstanding speakers and allows attendees to network with others in the industry who they might not meet otherwise. The best part is how the education portion of the meeting only lasts until noon so you can take advantage of everything this great all-inclusive beach property has to offer. Check out all the details at www.DLIonline.org/Five-Star including profiles of this year’s outstanding speakers.

On a personal note, before either of these events my only daughter will be married in late October. I am very proud of her and am looking forward to celebrating the beginning of this new phase of her life.

So many parties and so little time!
