Messe Frankfurt has announced that the 2021 edition of The Clean Show will be postponed due to the continued global impacts of COVID-19. The next edition will be held July 30 through August 2, 2022 in Atlanta.
After months of strategic conversations with Messe Frankfurt’s global leadership, partner associations and representatives from the show’s key exhibiting groups, the team has decided that pushing the show and its subsequent edition is in the best interest of the industry as a whole.
The decision will affect at least the next two editions, with Clean 2023 also being moved to now take place in August of 2024.
“Although this has been a tough decision to make, we are confident that moving The Clean Show will allow us to provide the quality experience and return on investment our exhibitors and visitors have come to expect from Clean,” said Greg Jira, Show Director for The Clean Show.
The decision to move the show has been met with a positive response from exhibitors.
Recognized as North America’s largest exposition for laundering, dry-cleaning, textile care services, supplies, and equipment, The Clean Show attracts store owners, plant operators, technicians, institutional laundry managers, distributors, consultants, buyers, and other industry professionals to see the newest and most technologically advanced products the industry has to offer. In addition to exhibits, the show offers educational seminars on the latest technology, business management, sustainability, and more.
The Clean Show is organized in collaboration with five industry-leading associations: Association for Linen Management (ALM), Coin Laundry Association (CLA), Dry-cleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI), Textile Care Allied Trades Association (TCATA), and Textile Rental Services Association of America (TRSA).
