Clean ’11 kicked off smoothly albeit a bit slowly during the first hour of the distributor session. The latter portion of the session brought more traffic to the show. From there it was non-stop traffic and all booths seemed to have plenty of customers.
Most booth staff took a breath at 3:30, not realizing how much time had passed. A good day was capped by the CLA [Coin Laundry Association] cocktail hour where good conversation continued.
Day one was a fruitful day, and we look forward to day 2.
P.S.: After the show, the Boston Bruins welcomed Vancouver to Boston with an 8-1 trouncing in the Stanley Cup Finals Game 3. Hold on for Game 4 Wednesday!
