In the ever-changing and competitive landscape of the carwash industry, women are quickly becoming
an integral part of successful carwash organizations.
Their impact and leadership can be found in many facets of carwash organizations – from ownership to site management. Convenience & Carwash Canada magazine is proud to recognize and celebrate these women by hosting the first ever Women in CarwashTM conference. As a woman owned, Convenience & Carwash Canada is especially pleased to host the Women in CarwashTM conference on April 29, 30 and May 1, 2019 at the Marriott on the Falls in beautiful Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. This premier event is the first conference of its kind. Come join us for educational sessions and workshops.
The Women in CarwashTM conference is something carwashing professionals won’t want to miss.
About the Conference
As recently as a decade ago the presence of women in leadership positions in the carwash industry was negligible. Today, 20 per cent of the leaders in the carwash industry are women.
This conference is an opportunity to learn how this change has impacted today’s industry and to promote continuing growth not only in car wash but for women in all leadership positions in the convenience and carwash industry.
Here is an overview of the great lineup of speakers and networking events that we hope will help you to make the most of this first-ever Women in CarwashTM conference.

You will walk away from this session with tangible tools and strategies for managing conflict situations effectively and getting positive results.
