Equipment Marketers hosts 23rd Annual Commercial Laundry Trade Show

Equipment Marketers, a commercial laundry distributor doing business since 1945, will be hosting their 23rd annual Commercial Laundry Trade Show and Service Seminar at the company’s headquarters in Cherry Hill, New Jersey on Thursday, May 5th, 2016. Each year draws an unprecedented number of laundry owners and operators to this event looking to purchase or lease new commercial laundry equipment for their apartment complex, coin laundry store or on-premise laundry facility.

The event is such a success because it draws hundreds of laundry owners and operators together to network, learn all that is new in the laundry business, and meet all the manufacturers’ representatives including representatives of leading brand name commercial laundry equipment suppliers. There are laundry seminars all day to join including this year: “What’s your Laundromat Worth”, “Be your own Boss…How to Open a Laundromat”, and “Credit cards, Payment Apps and More!” In the tradeshow area, there are over 25 vendors of different products associated with commercial laundry equipment or laundromats including card systems, energy-efficient lighting, financing, on-demand laundry delivery software, hot water heaters, and soap machines and detergents.

There will be commercial laundry factory service representatives on hand to teach mini service seminars to owners and operators so they can learn to maintain and make minor repairs to their equipment. There will be an ‘introduction to the laundry industry’ seminar for anyone looking to get into the business. According to Dick LaMaina, president of Equipment Marketers, “It is like a franchise without the franchise fees. Equipment Marketers can recommend equipment, store location and design, and facilitate financing.” The company has equipped thousands of laundries in the mid-Atlantic Area. The laundry business is one that is recession-resistant, a cash business with little labor, no inventory or receivables and typically, has a high rate of return.

If an apartment owner is looking to make their residents’ laundry facilities a premium amenity, this is the Trade Show to attend. Equipment Marketers specializes in using the latest technology to update laundry facilities from an unwelcoming environment into a first class amenity that will help owners to retain residents in their community. Equipment Marketers offers laundry monitory and internet-enabled applications for payment, so that residents know when laundry equipment is available for use in the laundry room, can receive a text or email when the laundry cycle is complete, and can pay for laundry using their smartphone at the machine.

Representatives of Equipment Marketers will be available all day to speak with attendees about the many options available for purchasing or leasing new commercial laundry equipment. There will be delicious food served all day and prizes and giveaways for everyone in attendance.

Registration is suggested as the event fills quickly. If you are interested in re-equipping your apartment central laundry, opening a laundromat or attending Equipment Marketers’ Trade Show on Thursday, May 5th, call today (800) 223-1376 or go to
