Attendees and exhibitors have used words like AWESOME Show; Fantastic time; Outstanding Show; First Class in All Aspects; and this will be a permanent trip for our group from now on.

As we continue to expand we want all of our efforts to continue to be relevant to our growing attendance”. The Convention was highlighted by two nationally recognized speakers MGM Vice President Michael Dominguez for the CEO Forum on Sunday and the Monday Keynote from FOX News Anchor Dana Perino. As one attendee said, “your speakers knocked it out of the park”!

The 2019 SCWA Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Ben Alford, Benny’s Car Wash & Oil Change chain in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. According to Awards Chair, Jeff Blansit “the Lifetime Achievement Award is the highest recognition given by the SCWA and we are proud to add Ben’s name to our honor roll”.
