The exhibit hall doors were thrown open Wednesday night, and more than 200 exhibitors welcomed attendees of the 2008 Connections Convention and Trade Show.

An active, invigorated crowd cruised the aisles, taking in the latest products and innovations the industry has to offer. 

Hands-on demonstrations; manufacturer-sponsored presentations; the outside demo area; all cylinders seemed to be firing as the night progressed.

Taking up residence again at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel and Casino, Connections is the largest event for the cleaning and restoration industry.

The underpinning of the event – the support and cooperation of 13 trade associations (AWCC; CRCII; FIO; MSPCA; NYRCI; PCRA; TRSCA; CFI; CCINW; LMCCA; NEIRC; PCUCA and SCRT) – continues to highlight the strength of the industry.

The day also saw a number of educational events, including “Maximizing Your Investment in Directed Heat Drying” ; “Specialty Stain Removal”; “The Color of Money, The Power of Going Green”; “Get the Real Picture with Infrared Technology”;  “Bringing Green to Extreme Soils and Stains Opens New Markets for Professional Cleaners”; “Discover the Latest and Greatest Marketing Strategies in the Carpet Cleaning Industry”; “How Dry is Dry?”; “How to Simplify Your Marketing” and more.

Connections Events President Craig Kersemeier will officially open the show Thursday morning. Check back often for more updates from the show.
