Car wash companies will be out in force at The Forecourt Show 2013, which will take place at the Birmingham NEC from April 14-16. Washtec (UK) is the latest company to sign up, joining Car Wash UK, Istobal, Karcher and Wilcomatic. Visitors will be able to see their latest equipment and discuss ways to market their car wash services to compete against the hand wash operators.

Other exhibitors at this key industry event include Air Serv, Dresser Wayne, Fairbanks Environmental, Gilbarco, Greenergy, Harvest Energy, HTEC, Jet, LP Gas, Murco, PEIMF and Tokheim.

A comprehensive programme of live sessions, including demonstrations and debates tackling key issues, will run for the duration of the show.
