CLEAN SHOW 2019 – Networking & having fun

As can be expected in the lively & swinging New Orleans there was plenty of opportunity to connect with new industry stakeholders as well as reconnect with the existing network. On the day before the show CINET organized a company visit to Mike’s Golden Cleaners and the production facilities of Milnor with a small group of international travelers that were in the USA already.
