Clean Show Sold to Messe Frankfurt

The Clean Show Executive Committee has finalized a deal with Messe Frankfurt to purchase the Clean Show. The Show is currently owned by the five major associations in the textile care industry: The Textile Care Allied Trades Association (TCATA), The Coin Laundry Association (CLA), The Dry-Cleaning and Laundry Institute (DLI), The Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA), and The Association for Linen Management (ALM). Riddle and Associates, managed the Show for nearly 30 years, ran the Clean Show in June 2019 on behalf of Messe Frankfurt.

As part of the sale, the five current sponsors will remain involved with the Show, including serving on an Advisory Board to provide input on future Shows, promoting and supporting the Show, sponsoring a booth, and in a variety of other ways. TCATA President Leslie Schaeffer noted that “It is important for TCATA members to know that the exhibitor package plan and the discounts on exhibit booths under the TCATA Plus One program (members of TCATA plus one other association get the lowest rates available) will remain a valuable benefit for future Shows. We anticipate that the transition to a new owner will be seamless, and that both exhibitors and attendees will largely have the same experience they had at past Shows.”

Messe Frankfurt is the world’s largest trade show and event organizer with its own exhibition grounds. Many members are familiar with Texcare, an event held in Frankfurt, produced by Messe every four years. Their purchase of the Clean Show will elevate the portfolio of trade shows organized by Messe for the laundry, dry cleaning and textile service businesses. Wolfgang Marzin, President and CEO of Messe Frankfurt, noted that “With the Clean Show, we have purchased America’s biggest trade show for the textile care industry and gained another module for our worldwide network of events for this sector. We now hold trade shows in all major economic regions and offer synergistic effects for both exhibitors and visitors.”
