Don’t miss this during Car Wash Show Europe
Car Wash Show Europe is near. This week, the bi-anual event will take place in Amsterdam. Numerous exhibitors will put their latest car wash innovations on display and the whole trade fair can be overwhelming. If you need some guidance, CarwashPro is here to help. We asked a number of exhibitors what they are planning on bringing.
DICO Carwash (stand 1.03.01)
DICO presents a number of themes at the booth. Among which are the electrically powered stainless steel car washes and the advantages of this new generation of machines. They also show their online portal for spare parts. And the total concept for the starting car wash entrepreneur.
Participation for DICO is multifaceted. “We are present for our existing relations to show and discuss novelties,” says DICO. “And in addition, to proactively spar with potential customers from both the Netherlands and abroad.”
DICO is also increasingly focusing on countries outside its traditional region and therefore calls participation in the show “very interesting”. Next year, DICO will start new projects in several countries.
Car Wash Transmissions (booth 2.07.01)
Car Wash Transmissions focuses on offering components for the replacement market and wants to continue to grow in this field, both nationally and internationally. At the fair they will present a new product, namely a steel galvanized chain conveyor construction, which can be placed in the pit of a car wash. “For some time now we have been producing these ourselves at our premises in Lelystad. By now we have a number of projects running and a number are ready for delivery in the near future,” said Car Wash Transmissions.
“Our strong point with regard to chain conveyor construction is that we can build it completely customer-specific, if required. Any customer requirements can be incorporated into it.”
PayWashGo (booth 2.04.01)
Tracs Systems shares the capabilities of PayWashGo at the booth. “PayWashGo is much more than a payment solution,” the Belgian company explains. “It is the beating heart of the car wash, connecting all management aspects. From a warm welcome to smart marketing tools, contactless handling and clear accounting. PayWashGo is digital and cloud-based, offers data-driven insights and contributes to smart growth.”

Cartec (booth 2.08.03)
Cartec is once again making an appearance during this edition of the CWSE. With years of experience, the Dutch brand Cartec has secured its place as a valued player within the automotive market. “This year we welcome both familiar faces and new relations with open arms,” says Cartec. “We are happy to highlight our versatile product range, including our high-quality chemistry line for car wash, products that provide interior care and VIP treatments, and a variety of DIY products for the passionate end user.”
Extendas (booth 4.10.07)
Discover the future of manned and unmanned car washing at the Extendas booth. Among other things, the SPINopc Payment Terminal will be presented. “This is the payment solution for the rollover or unmanned chain car wash. Customers pay effortlessly and benefit from reduced waiting times, thanks to a 15.6-inch touchscreen and a wide range of payment options, including debit, credit and fuel cards as well as the company’s own wash card and one-time wash tickets.”
SPINopc also offers automated marketing opportunities to increase wash frequency, Extendas says. “And upsell opportunities to boost sales. The SPINopc directly controls the car wash, in this we are brand independent. We also integrate with Payter terminals in wash bays and vacuum cleaners, where one’s own wash card can be used for payments. We also offer a possibility to sell wash tickets from a shop and support license plate washing and washing on account or subscription.”
RIWAX (booth 3.04.01)
RIWAX Netherlands wants to maximize the knowledge within the organization for the benefit of its relations. “We go for optimization of the washing result, and in doing so also for optimization of consumption and thus costs.
RIWAX Chemie AG is fully engaged in far-reaching greening of the entire product range, resulting in more and more products without ADR designation. Starting next year, we hope to present some great novelties, especially in the high-end product segment.”
“Finally, with our wide range we have nice upsell concepts for the carwash operator that can lead to more sales with the same number of washes.”

Image Building (booth 4.06.01)
Image Building specializes in the design, production and installation of temporary outdoor advertising. During Car Wash Show Europe, the company will showcase the Trotter. “This is an innovative billboard that fits perfectly into the line of high-quality street furniture. Without being ‘too loud’, it draws attention to the message it is carrying at the time.”
According to Image Building, the Trotter has a long lifespan. “Because it is made of hard plastic and recyclable aluminum, it is very strong, so damage and product loss are rare. But in the rare case it becomes seriously damaged, 98 percent of the Trotter is recyclable into parts for new signs.”
Car Wash Show Europe is spread over three days. On Wednesday, Sept. 20, the Car Wash Tours take place. There are still spots available for these, register here.
On Thursday, September 21 and Friday, September 22, the show is at EXPO Greater Amsterdam, with a program of knowledge sessions, the Innovation Alley and a Car Wash Dinner with award ceremony in addition to an exhibition floor. Access to the fair and sessions is free, register here.
