ISSA and Informa Markets solidify partnership in India
ISSA and Informa Markets are launching a new event for the Indian global cleaning and facilities management industry. The ISSA Conference India is scheduled for October 21st & 22nd, 2021, at the Westin Mumbai Garden City in Mumbai, India.
"ISSA is very happy to further expand our strong global partnership with Informa Markets by offering the ISSA India Conference," says Dianna Steinbach, ISSA vice president of International Services.
"This collaboration enables ISSA to bring more international insights and education at a local level, supporting the Indian cleaning industry's growing professionalism, as well as helping local businesses contribute to improved public hygiene and societal advancements."
The launch of the in-person ISSA Conference India comes on the heels of the incredibly successful inaugural event hosted by the partners in 2020 - the ISSA Global Biorisk Symposium in India. More than 1,000 industry professionals joined the online symposium to receive cutting edge information from highly qualified speakers on cleaning for infectious disease transmission prevention.
Speaking on the announcement of the ISSA Conference, Yogesh Mudras, managing director, Informa Markets in India, said: "We are happy to work closely with ISSA to launch the ISSA Conference India. It will not only bring international advanced experience and ideas to India's fast-growing cleaning industry but also will introduce overseas innovative equipment, products, and solutions to the huge India market.
“By joining forces and sharing resources, I believe together we can promote better development of the cleaning industry!
“The Conference is as timely as it is relevant considering the see-saw battle we are engaged with at the moment with the pandemic. The event will bring together professionals and companies, sensitising them on the pertinent issues in dealing with pandemics and redefining the global cleaning community with the single mission of changing the way the world views cleaning. The symposium is designed to provide the commercial, institutional, and industrial stakeholders with lessons learned and best practices in disaster management, readiness and resiliency, as well as leadership in times of crisis."
Conference delegates will be able to source new cleaning solutions for commercial cleaning, industrial cleaning, public utilities, municipal environmental sanitation, indoor environment purification and property, provided by international and local Indian companies.
The event will host eight educational conference sessions over the course of two days on topics such as; ‘Sanitation, health, and hygiene in India - challenges for the coming decade’, ‘Key management solutions every facility service provider should consider’, ‘The science behind cleaning & disinfecting’, ‘Integrating infection prevention into routine cleaning: learnings from Covid pandemic’, ‘The next big need in India's facility management world’, ‘Leveraging the merger of building automation & service IoT’, ‘Developing a top quality assurance program’, and ‘Making the business case for investing in cleaning & hygiene’.
The Conference will establish a framework for communication and awareness of best practices throughout the world and more specifically in the Indian market. It will be ideal for cleaning and FM professionals looking for education, products, solutions and the latest technologies and trends to enhance the health and safety of the buildings they maintain.
The venue will offer flexible and customised opportunities to enable companies around the world to showcase products and services and grow their reach in the Indian market. This will give companies seeking to reach key decision-makers within the Indian market an opportunity to not only build brand awareness abroad but to improve company positions as leading players in the worldwide cleaning industry.
