33rd NRCC Breaks Records!

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ — The 33rd Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC), October 2-4, at the Atlantic City Convention Center surpassed its 2022 booth count with 386 exhibits and beat its highest attendee number set in 2019 with 1921 combined attendees and exhibitors, according to Heather Courtney, NRCC Show Coordinator. “To say I’m thrilled would be an understatement,” said Courtney, who is in her seventh year managing the event. “We spent more money promoting the show and have elevated our educational track significantly over the last several years. The NRCC had outstanding education, a huge show floor and is cost-effective for operators as well as vendors and all of that combined is a great value to all.”  read more ….

About 2024 NRCC Keynote Speaker Will Guidara

Will Guidara is the author of the national bestseller “UNREASONABLE HOSPITALITY,” which chronicles the lessons in service and leadership he has learned over the course of his career in restaurents.

He is the co-owner of Make It Nice, a hospitality group that currently inclues Eleven Madison Park,
the NoMad restaurants and Made Nice in New York City. He has been immersed in the restaurant industry since the age of 13 and hails from Sleepy Hollow, NY.

While running Eleven Madison Park, Guidara discovered the remarkable power of giving people more than they expect, and used this idea of Unreasonalbe Hospitality to turn a struggling two-star brasserie into the #1 restaurant in the world. This radical reinvention was a true partnership between the kitch and the dining room, creating memorable, over-the-top, bespoke hospitality. Exactly what you want to give your carwash customers!!!
