Drycleaning & Laundry Expo:  East

Introducing the Drycleaning & Laundry Expo:  East/West

In an unprecedented move, the sponsors of the 4 largest regional drycleaning and laundry trade shows in the country are collaborating to strengthen the Exhibitions.


The South Eastern Fabricare Association (SEFA), California Cleaners Association (CCA), Southwest Drycleaners Association (SDA) and Pennsylvania Delaware Cleaners Association (PDCA) are co-branding the shows and working together on marketing agreements, but the shows will still run independently and retain their local flair.  Moving forward, the groups have reduced the number of live equipment shows from the traditional four on off Clean Show years to only two:  DLExpo East & DLExpo West.


“This is a great move for the industry,” observed SEFA President Randy Parham, “and one we think will only strengthen each show.   These shows are important.  Without them, the typical drycleaner doesn’t have access and the opportunity to see all the new and innovative products and services.  By reducing the number of shows from 4 to 2, we have made it easier for exhibitors to commit to exhibiting and having a much bigger presence.  We will be able to showcase the best of the industry.”


The Drycleaning and Laundry Expo East will be held on June 7 - 9, 2024 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Fl.  The Drycleaning and Laundry Expo West will be held October 4-6, 2024, at the Horseshoe Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.  Moving forward, the DL Expo East will move to the Baltimore/Washington area and the DL Expo West will be held in Texas in 2026.  The associations are still exploring options for 2028 and beyond.
In addition to live equipment exhibits, the shows will also feature top quality educational sessions and unique networking opportunities.  These conventions are designed for the everyday drycleaner to get a chance to experience the best of the industry and to explore ways to run more efficiently, more productively, and drive more profit.  With a greater anticipated attendance, the shows will have more resources to bring in great speakers and leaders to share their stories. 


The Gaylord Palms Resort is extending a convention rate of only $229/night.  It is one of the premier family resorts in all of central Florida. Making this event one of the best industry opportunities of 2024.
“The facility is incredible,” offered Blake, “and I can’t wait to bring my family.  With everything under one roof it is easy to get around, easy to balance work and family commitments.  It is really an unique property and features some of the best restaurants in the
area.  It is close to the parks, but set away enough you don’t feel the crowds.  I can’t wait to see everyone in June!
