The ExperienceAccording to a press release, The Experience Convention and Trade Show has named its five industry presenters for its inaugural “Speaking Contest.” Guest speakers are: Vince Attardo, Coastline Environmental Solutions;  Adam Hale, Carpet 911; Mary Bo, Express Restoration; Craig Herrmann, Las Vegas Mold; and OP Almaraz and Tim Bauer, Allied Restoration.

The Experience Convention offered an opportunity for innovation in the industry by inviting cleaners and restorers to apply to present on the program in Las Vegas. Presenters were asked to challenge what we know today to be acceptable and the standard. How can we run a fantastic business and live the life we dream about?

Each speaker will vie for the chance to win a $2,500 top prize, as well as second and third place prizes. They’ll be judged by David Keiter, Yellow Van Cleaning and Restoration; Bruce Deloatch, The Cleaners Coach; and Jessika James, Prochem. The audience will also have a say in the winner.

 The Experience Convention and Trade Show will take place from the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas from September 3-5. For more information, visit
