Cleanzine - the original Cleaning & Hygiene industry e-news

Read by industry professionals in 163 countries worldwide!
 

Although I write this from Manchester, where John and I are attending the Cleaning Show, this isn’t a ‘show daily’ since there’s lots of other news we’d like to share with you, as you’ll see below. There are a few show items and there’ll be more filtering through over the coming weeks.

When we arrived yesterday it was about half an hour after the doors opened and if you’d seen me you might have wondered where my horse was, as I gave out a loud “Whoa” and stopped in my tracks wondering what the heck had happened.

We hadn’t seen a UK show this crowded since the British Institute of Cleaning Science regionals we used to organise in the 90s when I was editing CHT. Not all of them of course, as few were what you could call exceptional – it’s the ones at the Clarendon Suite along the Hagley Road I’m talking about, which was always so busy that you’d think there wasn’t an international at the NEC every other year. If you remember those and weren’t in Manchester yesterday, you’ll understand my meaning!

As you’ll read below, two huge machines were sold before the doors were even due to open – and that’s the one we know about – there may well be others! And the place was buzzing – that’s not just me saying it but about 30 of those with whom we stopped to chat. Manchester had drawn a lot of our friends and colleagues from the past who we’d not seen for many a year.

Northern powerhouse indeed!

Several people quipped: “Who needs London?” referring to the London show which will be held in alternate years to what undoubtedly will be a Manchester event. Some seemed a mite serious with this question and my answer is that if we can do this here, we can do it in London too.

Everyone who attended the London show seemed to enjoy it and we mustn’t forget that it was the first year it had been held away from Birmingham since the early 90s. And don’t forget the issue caused by the second show that had been set up against it, which led to many not bothering to support either.

These shows put money back into the UK cleaning industry and the industry pulled together to get this one off the ground and ensure it was buzzing. If we can do it in Manchester we can do it in London next year – and make it more international too.

Let’s do it!

Show visitors in race to buy Morclean's Bin Wash

* Morclean2.jpgMorclean's Green Apple Award-winning BinWash machine has clearly created a stir because as the Manchester Cleaning Show's doors opened, two organisations made a beeline for the stand and asked to buy the machine on show.

Bearing in mind that the doors opened 15 minutes early as there were so many people outside waiting to get in, two machine sales before the show's official opening time must be something of an industry coup - and we're not talking about something in the mop & bucket price range either!

A good way to teach and test driving skills...

Karcher has been running a competition at the Manchester Cleaning Show to see who can negotiate its tight course the quickest, without knocking over any of the bollards (which incurs penalties) using both walk-behind and ride-on machines.

It occurred to us that a course like this actually offers a great way of training users in how to operate the machines while negotiating potential obstacles, before setting them loose on contracts... If you're a cleaning contractor, is this something your company does, or would consider doing?
