SCWA Announces 2021 Convention Date Change to June 9-11, 2021

  • SCWA & Fort Worth Convention Center take the health and well-being of our attendees seriously. Be assured we will implement all current Covid Protocols and CDC Guidelines to provide our attendees a safe and comfortable meeting environment.

  • The Southwest Car Wash Association announced the SCWA Board of Directors voted to move the 2021 SCWA Convention & Car Wash EXPO to June 9-11, 2021 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
  • This decision to move the dates from February 17-19 was made after careful consideration of the current COVID situation and evaluating the factors that will exist over the next 60-90 days. The SCWA Board believes that getting through the winter months; the flu season; and rollout of the vaccine; will provide a safer and larger attended event for everyone to enjoy. See you in June!

As the situation began, SCWA immediately went to work for our members and the industry to provide needed information and to educate public officials on the “essential business” nature of car washing.
