November 13, 2001
Four regional trade associations have decided to take on a combined regional trade show.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- After this past Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) board meeting in Portland, Ore., four regional trade associations got together and decided to take on a combined regional trade show.

The Professional Carpet & Upholstery Cleaners Association (PCUCA), Professional Cleaning & Restoration Alliance (PCRA), Carpet Cleaners Institute of the North West (CCINW) and the Carpet & FabriCare Institute (CFI) agreed to return to Las Vegas, Nev. in the fall of 2003 for another joint Convention and Trade Show, according to CFI president Dennis Iverson.

The associations have already started working together on the details for CONNECTIONS. Instead of doing four separate conventions west of the Mississippi in 2003, the four associations will be able to have one convention program and a trade show full of products and services from all over the United States and Canada.
