ANOTHER RECORD SETTING EVENT
FOR THE EQUIPMENT MARKETERS COMMERCIAL LAUNDRY TRADE SHOW.

CHERRY HILL, N.J. — For 23 years, laundry owners have been attending the Equipment Marketers Trade Show to see the latest models and leading brands of commercial laundry equipment as well as the newest products and technologies in the industry. This year’s event set yet another record with close to 350 customers who came out for a “Laundry Cabaret” themed show. With live entertainment such as cabaret acts (of course), singers, aerial performers, food and thousands of dollars in prizes it was a day not to be missed. More than 25 vendors showcasing laundry related products were in attendance and added to the six laundry business seminars and five service seminars running that day, making the event the mid-Atlantic region’s premier venue to learn more about the latest in commercial laundry. Laundromat owners were invited to the company’s “Trade Show Preview Night” and came for a casual evening of networking, entertainment and drinks. Visitors traveling from a distance benefited from mileage credits and complementary overnight stays at a nearby hotel. The Equipment Marketers show is the largest forum in the mid-Atlantic area to meet other laundry owners, take advantage of sales, industry knowledge, and meet representatives who will guide customers through the entire process of opening a laundromat and helping to sustain and support the business. For more information about equipping a commercial business or housing complex call Equipment Marketers at (800) 223-1376 or visit equipmentmarketers.net.
