2020 Product & Equipment Show
Dear Heartland Carwash Association Member,
Due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Board of Directors for the Heartland Carwash Association announced on March 19, 2020, that it has no choice but to make the necessary decision to cancel the original April dates for the HCA’s Product Show. All vendor and attendee fees will be refunded by the HCA within 60 days. Membership dues paid as a part of the Product Show registration will be retained by the association as your 2020 dues payment.
Please contact Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino once they reopen to the public to obtain hotel room refunds. Prairie Meadows can be contacted by phone at: 515-967-1000 or 800-325-9015. For booth vendors who already made shipping arrangements directly with Freeman Decorating, please contact them by phone at: 515-829-4444 or by email at: FreemanDesMoinesES@freemanco.com
Over the weekend of March 14, 2020, the CDC issued guidance recommending that gatherings over 50 people be cancelled or delayed. Additionally, Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino has announced it is temporarily closing beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 for up to 30 days. Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our members, attendees, and vendors is paramount.
