Trade Show
The Car Wash Show 2024 has more than 196,000 square feet (or four football fields!) for exhibitors to showcase the latest and greatest products and technologies. This is 5,000 square feet more space than at last year’s show! More than 400 companies will be exhibiting at The Show, with almost 100 of those being first-time exhibitors!

Innovation Alley
Innovation Alley — which debuted at Nashville in 2022 — is now more of an Innovation Interstate and is located near the front of the trade show. This space is designed to showcase the new products and services impacting our growing industry from first-time exhibitors.

Join ICA President Marcus Kittrell of Mammoth Holdings on Tuesday night to posthumously honor this year’s Hall of Fame recipient, Lamar Beck. This exclusive ICA members-only event will include high-end cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, as we celebrate the recipient of ICA’s highest honor while connecting with other ICA members.
