Learn More about Annual Conferences

Here’s a great way to save money and help you grow your business while attending a fantastic TRSA event. TRSA is unveiling an initiative that will provide a free registration for September’s TRSA Annual Conference near Phoenix (a $995 value) for one executive from every member laundry operator company. A second attendee can qualify for 50% off their fee. TRSA will fully rebate these costs for operators who participate in TRSA’s new Executive Exchange program, an appointment-based morning event that replaces traditional table-top exhibits.

The Executive Exchange will change the way textile services executives learn about new products and services. The program will feature focused one-on-one meetings with TRSA associate members, the industry's most innovative suppliers, along with the Annual Conference, which offers ample time for networking with peers and colleagues. Associates can update operators on the latest products and services that can increase productivity and profitability. At the same time, they’ll gain insights into the challenges facing laundries and will have opportunities to discuss customized solutions.

Rebates will be awarded for participating in at least nine 15-minute meetings during two 4-hour blocks on Tuesday, Sept. 20 and Wednesday, Sept. 21. Executives and associates will have opportunities to schedule, accept and reject proposed invitations to ensure each meeting is productive.

Appointment setting will take place approximately three weeks prior to the start of the Annual Conference. Participants will receive detailed instructions on using the online scheduling process before the matchmaking begins.

“These 15-minute meetings between decision-makers and leading associate suppliers offer a unique opportunity to learn about new, innovative products and develop personal connections,” said TRSA President and CEO Joseph Ricci. “There is no better format for textile services executives to spend focused time researching the products and services that can improve operational efficiency.”

The TRSA Annual Conference & Executive Exchange fosters interaction between nearly 100 executives and senior management from independent, regional and national companies providing textile services to the food/beverage, healthcare, hospitality and industrial/uniform sectors. Details of the Sept. 19-21 conclave at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort in Chandler, AZ, including keynote presentations and social activities, will be released shortly.
