Here’s the inside scoop on the hottest, most rockin’ party in Dallas on October 31: the first-ever ISSA Backlot Bash. Featuring live entertainment, free food and drinks, and special celebrity appearances, this industry-exclusive street fest promises to be the biggest networking event of the year.

The Bash is the amalgamation of several evening networking events and receptions held by ISSA at previous shows, including President’s Reception, YES Reception, and the Manufacturers’ Rep Reception. This year, we’ll all come together for one magnificent party!

ISSA Backlot Bash will be held outside the Omni Hotel, adjacent to the Restaurants on Lamar, the ultimate Dallas dining destination featuring premier dining, tasty bites, a hand-crafted cocktail, or a local brew.

Partygoers will enjoy an open bar and an array of complimentary eats, along with live musical entertainment from the funky, yet soulful, Chris Watson Band followed by the charismatic American country artist, Jack Ingram.

Throughout the evening, get a unique twist on your caricature with Dallas’ renowned Krandel Lee Newton—the Original Butt Sketcher! The sketches only take a few minutes and always prove to be an entertaining scene.

For those who appreciate beautiful and talented performers, some of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders will be there to autograph photos. Get in line to snap a selfie with one of these iconic celebs and post to your social media account right away! Use the ISSA Show hashtags #ISSAShow18, #Texas, #Dallas, #Cleaning (or #clean), and #Show.

“Doing good is good business.” Proceeds of this event will benefit the ISSA Charities, including ISSA Scholars, Cleaning for a Reason, ISSA Hygieia Network, and others.

The Backlot Bash is included in the All-Access Pass or can be added as an à la carte item for a tax-deductible $99 donation—can we count on your support? See you in Dallas!
