The Car Wash Show 2020 Original Dates Cancelled Due to Coronavirus and Travel Guidance

March 16, 2020

CLICK HERE for a note from Ken Littrell, ICA President.


After weeks of careful monitoring of the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Board of Directors of International Carwash Association (ICA) has voted unanimously to cancel The Car Wash Show™ 2020, scheduled to be held April 6-8 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. Options for rescheduling the event for later dates are being considered.

ICA has been committed to observing the recommendations put forth by public health officials since the beginning of this unprecedented situation. The latest guidance released by the White House Coronavirus Task Force, broadened the recommendations to consider postponing meetings and limiting attendance for any American. Therefore, the current environment makes it impossible for us to hold a successful event for our attendees and exhibitors.

“We are extraordinarily disappointed by having to make this decision,” said Eric Wulf, ICA Chief Executive Officer, “but the latest guidance from public officials makes it clear that the most responsible decision is to put the safety of our guests first, and cancel the event for the original dates. We want to thank our exhibitors and show partners for their commitment and support during these challenging weeks, and we will continue to collaborate with them through this situation.”
