Cleanscene Down Under
CleanScene12, to be held in Sydney in October this year, is set to be the largest cleaning industry trade expo ever held in Australia, reports Terry Fraser, CEO of the National Cleaning Suppliers Association of Australia. And adding to the event's prestige, ISS Facility Services has agreed to be the major sponsor of the CleanScene12 Innovative products or Services Award.
The winning product or service of the Innovative Products Award, run in conjunction with CleanScene12, will carry with it the national imprimatur of this prestigious expo.
The applicants will first be judged by popular vote at functions to be held by each NCSA branch. The winners and runners-up in these preliminary competitions will then go on to a final judging at the CleanScene12 show which runs from 23rd to 25th October at the Sydney Showgrounds, Homebush Olympic Park. The judging panel (yet to be announced) will consist of noted and independent industry experts in their respective fields.
"We are delighted to sponsor this Award," says Gordon Marr, CEO of ISS Facility Services. "This Innovative Product Award is, in itself, the most innovative competition ever presented to the cleaning industry and we expect a large turnout of exhibitors as well as members of the cleaning industry for the popular vote judging when the state branch functions are announced."
Exhibitors wishing to submit entries have until 30th July with preliminary judging commencing in late August. Terry Fraser is impressed with the high standard of entries already received and he has challenged the cleaning industry to come up with further innovative products that will change the way cleaning is carried out.
"Fast speed polishing changed cleaning methods in the 60's, suction polishing did it in the 70's, BackVac vacuuming did it in the 80's, Microfibre Cloths did it in the 90's and Training of Cleaning Operators became the 'big thing' in the naughties. What will be the major change for this decade?"
