SUPPLIER NEWS: Sonny’s Announces Live Online Virtual CarWash Expo, Fall Edition

2 minute Read

This September 22 and 23, Sonny's is planning on holding The Virtual CarWash Expo, Fall Edition.  The event will take place online at from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. EST.  Registration is free. 

“With months of disruption and fall regional shows canceled, there’s even more reason for our industry to connect and get together,” said Paul Fazio, CEO at Sonny’s. “We set out to answer three questions: How do we help the industry right now?  How do we help current operators right now? How do we help new investors learn more, right now?” 

The Virtual CarWash Expo experience is similar to a physical tradeshow with one difference, you can attend from the comfort of your home or business. Similar to the well-attended April show, there will be a live Q&A with real-time inbound messaging to panel members and options to schedule one-on-one meetings for site proformas, equipment, chemistry, signage, controls and marketing. 

“Nothing will ever replace face-to-face interaction – especially in our industry.  People like to come together,” said Kati Pierce, SVP at Sonny’s.  “That said, the online expo is the next best thing.  Once we heard all the fall shows were canceled, we wanted to create that experience in an online format.  All the education and information without the travel!” 

The Virtual CarWash Expo agenda will soon be available at  The September event will include: 

>Panel discussions on how operators managed the business impact from COVID-19

>Sessions on key trends, business management and membership revenue models

>Presentations on how to get started in car washing, how to boost sales and potential pitfalls

>Keynotes from Paul Fazio, CEO of Sonny’s, and Anthony Analetto, President of Sonny’s

>Operator insights on converting a full-serve to express
