EDUCATION FOCUS — Click here for the education program
This year ARTA’s education program ranges from best practices to new technology to research studies that help you more effectively market reusable textiles. For example:

  • Extending shelf life and cleanliness of textiles. Does a silver additive extend the shelf life and kill factor for treated textiles?  Learn results from Medline representatives and the COMTEX team.
  • Can C.diff be killed in a tunnel washer? Is there proof that the laundry process kills C.diff ? Learn the results of this ARTA study using Peracetic acid in a laundry process that simulates the action of a tunnel washer.
  • Bac-stat versus no bac-stat? This once popular treatment fell out of favor due to cost. But is it time to reconsider?  
  • How to make a cubicle program profitable. Learn best practices from several large laundries in Canada and the U.S. on how they make cubicle curtain programs a value-added service for customers and a profitable offering for laundries.
  • Panel discussion on available life cycle analyses. ARTA completed two LCAs within the past year on isolation and surgical gowns. Learn from operators and suppliers how to use this data. 

Who should attend? CEOs, managers and marketing/sales staff. Consider bringing your partner and family for a vacation before or after the conference. The conference hotel rate applies three days prior and following the conference.
