Product Quality Cleaning Workshop


We have received several requests from sponsors about the procedure for securing one of the limited sponsorship spots. You may sign up by providing a non-refundable $200 deposit via our secure marketplace.


Why sign up now? It makes great sense promotionally, because the Cleaning Research Group and our Partner BFK Solutions will advertise YOUR sponsorship of the Product Quality Cleaning Workshop at our booths at the Precision Machining Technology Show, co-located with the Parts Cleaning Conference April 2-4 in Cleveland, Ohio. The promotional partnership is a bargain for $200, and the deposit will be credited toward your full sponsorship cost. Here is a list of our sponsorship opportunities.
