The Game is Changing -
Experience SCWA 2014
WELCOME TO THE 2014
SCWA CONVENTION & CAR
WASH EXPO SPECIAL EDITION.
Over the past several years
the car wash industry has experienced
many changes and challenges.
SCWA has worked hard
to provide our members the tools,
resources and encouragement to
meet the challenges and turn the
changes into success stories.
The 2014 SCWA Convention & Car Wash EXPO,
February 23-25, 2014 will continue to offer information,
strategy and solutions for car wash owners and vendors
so we can all be better prepared.
As our theme this year expresses The Game IS
Changing – we must all be ready to confront the pressures
of changing situations head on. Denying current
or coming change can be harmful to the productivity
of our business. With accelerating rates of changes
in demographic buisiness dynamics and technologies,
business owners must be willing to transform.
In facing these fast-paced business trends, businesses
should attempt to hit change like a bulls-eye, understanding
the depth and range of effect. Our ability to
understand and accept change should be encouraged,
We know that time and money to attend the
Convention & EXPO is a commitment on your part – so
we work hard to make sure our program and speakers
bring the most relevant information and business solutions
for you to use in your everyday business operations.
This year the CEO Forum will offer the unique
perspectives of Mister Car Wash CEO, John Lai who
will discuss how the car wash environment is changing
and how you can use the dynamics to be more successful.
The Car Wash Academy is being expanded even
more to include a broad range for all experience levels.
We are also expanding the Detail Academy sessions
based on education provided by the International Detail
Of course the Car Wash & Lube EXPO is always
the popular place to be with suppliers, manufacturers
and vendors displaying the very latest in equipment,
supplies and services for the car wash; detail and lube
owners. This year we will be expanding the EXPO to
provide for additional exhibitors. If you are a vendor/
supplier you want to make sure you are a part of the
SCWA EXPO. Vendor information and registration can
be found on the SCWA website www.swcarwash.org.
Our General Session will feature the nationally
known speaker and author Jim Davidson. Jim is a businessman,
author and mountain climbing expedition
leader who will uncover “real world” wisdom that will
help us all reach new levels in our business operations.
You may want to check out Jim before the Convention on
the Discovery channel or Animal Planet. You can also
