Impressions from Clean 2022 By Don Desrosiers

My impression of the Clean Show started on an extremely positive note. Not only was the weather great – far better than the rain we had during the last Clean Show in Georgia – and the badge pickup could not have been smoother.

There were more than enough self-service kiosks to easily look up your pre-paid reservation and print your badge in an instant. This simply could not have gone better. This got my day going in the right direction!
