ATLANTA — The registration period for The 2018 Experience Conference and Exhibition, slated for April 26-28 (with pre-show programs on April 25) in Atlanta, has officially opened. Early-bird registration is currently under way through April 6.

“We love to offer our lowest prices to all potential attendees of our, show so we have determined that we will offer only one low price to all attendees,” The Experience Managing Partner Larry Cooper said in a release. “Booth sales have been very busy, and we expect to sell out of space in the coming months.”

The early-bird ticket price includes three keynote speaker sessions:

  • Rusty Amarante, operations manager for BELFOR, will discuss Third Party Providers,
  • Robert Rohm will discuss “Making Sense of Your People,”

Live, hands-on demonstrations, 30 classroom sessions, and the critical tradeshow will also be featured each day of the conference.

“We want to help the industry continue to grow and provide the most important information available for the industry,” Cooper added. “[That’s why] our show features hands on demonstrations and try before you buy opportunities.”

The Experience team will provide hands-on opportunities in flood and drying skills; demonstrations in hard surface floorcare and wood floor care, and carpet and upholstery cleaning with seven different truckmount and portables to try. Robert Mann of ARCS will teach area rug ID and cleaning of various products in the area rug section.

During trade show hours, attendees can go outside for real, hands-on testing and demonstrations of wands, upholstery tools, rotary extractors, scrubbers, truckmounts, portables, and all the latest gadgets. Attendees will also find carpet to test equipment and chemicals on as well as upholstery, tile, and stone.
