The SDLS was a success on all levels. One of the most critical benchmarks of success is the engagement of the attendees. Based on exhibitor feedback, and from the obvious crowds at the seminars and workshops -- SEFA hit a home run.
“We are very proud of our Convention & Exhibit”, observed Don Holecek, SEFA President, “and we are really pleased with the whole event. With live equipment operating, live spotting demonstrations, and even seminars on the show floor -- the SDLS was the place to be!”
SCENES FROM THE SDLS SHOW!!
THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SPONSORS!!!!!
SEFA wants to thank all the SDLS Sponsors for helping to make this years exhibit and convention one of the best in the country..
“We look at the SDLS as a tremendous membership benefit,” observed Don Holecek, SEFA President, “and our sponsors really help us to make a difference in the industry.”
SEFA used the support of the sponsors to enhance the show experience for all attendees including the Friday Night cocktail party, the member reception, and the shuttle bus taking people to tour the M & B Hanger Manufacturing Plant located in the area.
“I can’t say enough about the commitment these companies have shown for not only our members, but the industry as a whole,” stated SEFA Executive Director Peter Blake. “It is through their continued support that we are able to be one of the best regional drycleaning associations in the country. SEFA now offers $8,000 per year in scholarships to DLI. Under a brand new program, SEFA has set aside up to $10,000 in scholarships so members can bring educators into their own individual plant. SEFA has also set aside money to help fund necessary regulatory efforts like the Florida Drycleaners Coalition. We can only do things like this because of things like the SDLS and through the sponsorships of these companies.”
