Equipment Marketers hosts 24th Annual Commercial Laundry Trade Show

Equipment Marketers, a commercial laundry distributer doing business since 1945, will be hosting their 24th annual Commercial Laundry Trade Show and Service Seminar – “Learn, Engage, Succeed” - at the company’s headquarters in Cherry Hill, New Jersey on Thursday, May 4th, 2017. 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.

This year’s theme “Learn, Engage, Succeed” was such a natural because the event successfully draws hundreds of laundry owners and operators together to network, learn all that is new in the laundry business, and succeed in their businesses. There is opportunity to meet all the manufacturers’ representatives including those of leading brand name commercial laundry equipment like Maytag Commercial, Primus and Continental Girbau and also over 25 vendors of different products associated with laundries such as card systems, energy-efficient lighting, financing, on-demand laundry delivery software, hot water heaters, change machines, and soap machines and detergents.

There are laundry business seminars held all day to join. This year will feature “What’s your Laundromat Worth”, “Be your own Boss…How to Open a Laundromat”, and “Negotiating a New or Current Lease for your Laundromat.” 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. “The ‘introduction to the laundry industry’ seminar is great 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 monitoring 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 is delicious food served all day, prizes and giveaways including free washing machines raffled off to some lucky coin laundry store owners. Registration is suggested as the event fills quickly.
