ISSA Show North America 2022 opens registration and releases education program
ISSA Show North America 2022, the annual tradeshow which brings together leaders from the commercial, institutional, and residential cleaning community, is open for registration. The event offers opportunities for networking, education and product discovery that help industry professionals evolve their businesses and change the way the world views cleaning.
Attendees are encouraged to register now for the event happening 10th -13th October, 2022, at McCormick Place in Chicago.
"The ISSA Show North America is the industry's largest and most anticipated event of the year," says ISSA executive director John Barrett. "It's the premier place for organisations and professionals to come together to learn, network and share innovative cleaning products that will guide us on the path to better health."
ISSA Show North America 2022 will host over 70 sessions, providing resources for attendees to stay up to date on the latest trends and solutions for cleaning, disinfection and infection prevention and for pursuing accreditation, training and certification. Like in past years, the 2022 sessions will cover several important topics, including hiring and retention in post pandemic times, budgeting and marketing for infection prevention and the future of sustainability in the cleaning industry.
"This year, we're offering a wider array of opportunities for networking, education and product discovery," says Amie Gilmore, director, Informa Markets. "Learning and collaboration are essential to evolving this industry and for changing how the world views cleaning."
The conference will feature more than 50 guest speakers who are comprised of industry leaders passionate about advancing cleaning information, standards, education and innovation to improve human health. The three keynote sessions will spotlight RPM Restaurant Group co-owner Bill Rancic, filmmaker Sarah Moshman, and CEO Derreck Kayongo (pictured), a native of Uganda and former refugee who worked his way up to become the CEO of National Center for Civil and Human Rights and founder of the Global Soap Project.
Derreck Kayongo's presentation will tackle the issue of discrimination in the workplace by taking the audience through an examination of how diversity and inclusion problems impact the corporate bottom line. By the end of his session, he hopes to instil what he calls a ‘Corporate Moral Aptitude’ into the bloodstream of attendees' organisational cultures, positioning them to succeed in an increasingly multicultural workforce.
