Girbau Kicks Off Clean Show Vendor Parties
Continental Girbau Inc., the U.S. affiliate of the Spanish equipment manufacturer Girbau Global Laundry Solutions, kicked off the vendor parties at the Clean Show with a bang as 300-plus people jammed into a large meeting room at Caesars Palace for an overview of product innovations planned for display at the company’s Clean Show booth.
Vice President Joel Jorgensen of the Oshkosh, WI, based company gave attendees – including affiliated equipment distributors, customers and guests – a virtual “walking tour” of the kinds of products they’ll be seeing in the Girbau booth when the Clean Show opens on June 5.
Continental President Mike Floyd also addressed the distributors and handed out a series of awards to various attendees for reaching or exceeding sales goals in the past year. Floyd then noted wryly that he was sure the attendees were thirsty and he directed them out of the room and to a reception area to the left where they found a full bar and extensive hors d’oeuvres. The reception room included a large ice sculpture emblazoned with the company’s logo. This was the first of what will surely be many high-profile parties to come as the June 5-8 Clean Show gets underway this week.
