A clean winner
The countdown is on to the opening of the UK's leading showcase for all products and services used in the cleaning & support services industry. The Cleaning Show 2013, which the organiser says is set to be the largest in the event's history, with pre-registered visitors up by 70%, will take place from March 19th -21st at Birmingham's NEC.
With more than 200 exhibitors showcasing a broad range of equipment and services, plus a host of new features for 2013, The Cleaning Show is the must-attend event of the year for businesses involved in any aspect of the cleaning industry. The 2013 event has also attracted a significant number of high profile companies exhibiting for the first time. These include the Independent Washroom Services Association, KGS Diamond International, The Malish Corporation, Reintec and TVH UK.
Visitors to the show can expect to find a wealth of products, information and ideas designed to help them to lower costs, improve standards, tackle problems such as pests and chewing gum, improve hygiene and cleanliness to stamp out MRSA, as well as advice on issues concerning insurance, employment legislation and the latest environmental information.
The popular window cleaning competition returns for 2013. Window cleaners may pit their skills against the clock for a daily cash prize and the chance to compete against the world's fastest window cleaner, Terry Burrows, in a bid to take the world title.
Several new features have been introduced to the 2013 event, further increasing the benefits of visiting the show.
The Innovation Zone celebrates the growing success of The Cleaning Show Innovation Awards. Exhibitors have been entering their innovations online, across a range of categories, for the 2013 Awards. For the first time these will be featured in an Innovation Zone at the show. Judging, by a team of industry professionals, will take place on the opening day.
An exit survey at The Cleaning Show 2011 revealed that 'green' products are a major area of interest for visitors. Hence, the Green Zone has been introduced to help companies to source more environmentally-friendly products and services. The Green Zone will feature products from different companies, all developed to promote environmentally-sensitive cleaning practices.
The Business Hub Zone will introduce essential services and will feature companies within the insurance, finance, recruitment, IT, marketing & PR, design and training sectors. Facing the internet café, this is sure to be a busy area.
Also new for 2013 is the Laundry Zone, designed specifically as a showcase for companies manufacturing or supplying products and services for the textile care industry.
The Cleaning Show is an essential event for professionals and executives from a wide range of sectors, including contract cleaning, carpet and upholstery cleaning, education, facilities management, hospitals and healthcare, industrial and factory operations, janitorial supplies and wholesalers, hotels and leisure establishments, local and central government, offices and commercial premises, retail outlets and window cleaning.
Visitors should pre-register on the website to receive free parking at the NEC (usual cost £10), plus a free priority pass allowing quick and easy entrance to the show.
