Another great conference for the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association. This year the well-attended annual meeting was held in sunny Charleston, South Carolina. I always enjoy attending these IKECA events that allow me to network and learn about the latest tools.
The conference was packed with industry related seminars from Fire departments to business matters and equipment manufacturers. I have personally been attending these meetings for over 25 years, and they have never disappointed me. The opportunity to meet and learn with other industry leading cleaning companies from across the North America, ensures our cleaning solutions are the most current. This year we got a refresher on the ANSI/IKECA standards of Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning as well as demonstrations from exhibitors about new products.
I personally take great pride that I have been asked to be a presenter at many of these conferences. Being the First Canadian President of the Canadian Chapter in IKECA, I never could of imagined all the rewarding benefits of giving back to our industry. Pressure-Kleen Services Company has often been applauded by our industry peers for our innovation and highest standards. I’m looking forward to next fall’s conference where I can expand my knowledge and share that expertise with my customers. I believe an educated customer can make better decisions.
