Staff Writer |

FAIRWAY, Kan. — The American Reusable Textile Association (ARTA) has shifted the dates of its 2012 Education Seminar slightly based on the event’s proximity to Passover and Easter, according to an association press release.

The April 3-5 conference at The Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tenn., will focus on “Marketing Reusables in 2012: How Clean is Clean, How to Sell Clients — and Control Stop Losses after the Sale.”

“We realized both Passover and Easter were the weekend following the conference, so we’ve moved our dates to April 3-5 to make travel easier for attendees,” ARTA President Steve Tinker explains.

The conference is open to ARTA members and non-members, as well as ARTA’s sister associations. The agenda and speakers are being finalized, but the education program will include these topics:

  • Hotel Guest, Hospital Patient or Visitor: Is Your Health at Risk?
  • Infection Prevention — A Clinical Perspective
  • Infection Prevention 101: Practices for the Laundry
  • Standards of Clean — How Do We Measure It?
  • Antimicrobial Finishes — Claims vs. Reality
