About ICA

We're only about the car wash industry.
Because we are the car wash industry's association.

International Carwash Association® is the nonprofit trade group representing the retail and supply segments of the professional car wash industry globally. The Association's member companies represent car washes in more than two dozen countries. ICA is led by a volunteer board of directors, elected by its membership from the industry’s leading car wash companies.

Founded in 1954, International Carwash Association exists for the purpose of promoting and securing the mutual benefit, improvement and cooperation of those engaged in the business of operating automatic car wash establishments and allied businesses. 

The Association produces The Car Wash Show™, the world's largest car wash trade shows and conventions in North America and Europe, administers WaterSavers®, the industry's leading environmental recognition program and publishes CAR WASH Magazine™, the preferred source of information for the car wash business leader.

The Association is the voice of the professional car wash industry, serving as its spokesperson to business and consumer media, investors, governmental agencies, allied associations and related industries. As part of this role, the Association produces information in the areas of consumer habits and preferences, the environmental attributes of professional car washing and industry sales.

International Carwash Association exists to support the car wash industry and strengthen our community of retailers and suppliers. Click here to read our strategic plan.
