Following a day of meetings by the ISCT membership and the board of directors, early arrivals had Wednesday to themselves and took advantage of the many outdoor opportunities to be found in the seaside community. That evening the "Beach Bash" welcome reception set up shop on the sand, providing an evening of food, drink and casual conversation that lasted long after the sun disappeared over the horizon.
Thursday morning saw ISCT CEO Bill Yeadon, Executive Director Linda Kanouse and President Ruth Travis welcome attendees who had traveled from both near and far. Keynote Speaker Michael A. Berry, a research professor at the University of North Carolina and a former deputy director with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, wove a serious, straightforward tale of "Clean and Dry: Keys to Keeping the Indoor Environment Healthy," a timely and convention theme-conscious topic.
These speakers and many others provided an educational backdrop for the convention's other main attraction, the industry trade show. More than 50 companies displayed their latest product innovations, giving some sneak previews at what the cleaning and restoration industry can expect to see in the coming years.
The 2003 ISCT Convention, Trade Show and Annual Meeting will be held in High Point, NC at the Joseph S. Koury Convention Center, June 17-21.
