Join us for inspiring women,
educational workshops, and fun.
As recently as a decade ago the presence of women in leadership positions in the carwash industry was negligible. Today, twenty per cent of the leaders in the carwash industry are women and their numbers are growing.
Come and join us for this, our 4th conference!
In the ever-changing carwash industry, women are rapidly emerging as some of the most forward-thinking leaders.
What is also exciting is that a growing number of men are welcoming and actively supporting this change.
The first three Women in Carwash™ conferences recognized and celebrated this exciting development to the delight of our guests who found it very valuable, informative, ground-breaking, and surprisingly intimate. One thing everyone could agree on is that a healthy, happy industry that is getting better for women is an industry that is getting better for everyone, and this will be a driving theme of the upcoming conference.
Come and join us for this, our 4th conference!
