We're just 5 weeks away from our 100 percent peer recommended E3 education series. Join us in Nashville to hear from the author of three Amazon.com No.1 business bestsellers, Scott McKain. For car wash owners and operators at the Wash Different Workshop, he'll dive into "What the Customer Really Wants," helping you provide the ultimate customer experience.

And for our vendor community, he'll focus on "Standing Out and Moving Up During Times of Change." He'll outline how organizations - and the professionals who work for them - should deal with change. He also offers insight on how to handle the undetermined aspects of the future.
