The 2015 Car Wash Expo will take place in Las Vegas this week (April 23-25), coinciding with the vending industry's NAMA OneShow. These two different industry events will take place right across the hall from one another, in the Las Vegas Convention Center. At the Car Wash Show, manufacturers of automatic car washes, self serve ones, brushes, soaps, hoses, rags, air fresheners, even the occasional pet wash will line the show floor for attendees to interact with and buy from. If you're able to make use of their proximity and take time to make it into the NAMA OneShow, as a member of the Car Wash industry, or vice versa it would certainly prove be an excellent opportunity to learn more about the uniqueness and similarities of the different industries, and the technology and products used in them. And what's even more of a reason to attend the other event is that you typically find vending at many car wash locations, so it might be helpful to know your stuff! We even heard that you'll be able to upgrade your badges for a nominal fee to be able to float in and out of venues, which will make the networking and education between industries even easier.

At the CPI booth this year (#125) (we're also listed under "MEI" for those who aren't as familiar with CPI yet) we'll be showcasing three of our six company brands that are relevant to the car wash industry: MEI, Money Controls, and NRI.

For the car wash space, the MEI brand fills the need for note acceptors superiorly. MEI acceptors have proven performance in the field. They're durable, water resistant, secure, take different denominations ($1-$100), accept cashless payments (contact your sales distributor about the technical specifications required) and handle wet, wrinkled, torn or dirty bills with ease- perfect for the car wash environment.

The Money Control and NRI brands are new to the car wash portfolio with the Crane Co acquisition of MEI and merger with Crane Payment Stems to form CPI. These brands make coin validator and hopper products available to CPI customers in retail locations, like the car wash industry.

So, stop by our booth during the Car Wash Expo this week (and at the NAMA OneShow) and learn more about the payment system technology we have to drive your profits upwards.
