Entries for UK's premier cleaning awards open next Tuesday

* Golden-Service-Awards-launch.jpgConsidered to be the pinnacle awards for the UK cleaning industry, the Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards - next taking place on 23rd May 2024 at the London Hilton, Park Lane, are open for entries from 18th July.

Created more than 30 years ago, the biennial Golden Service Awards is one of the most prestigious events and success in them is one of the most sought-after accolades in the facilities management and cleaning industry across a variety of sectors, including healthcare, retail, manufacturing, hospitality, education, leisure and office.

"Behind the scenes, our cleaning and FM teams continue to make our workspaces and our public venues safe despite difficult times for all of us," says Craig Bowman, general manager for the UK & Ireland at Kimberly-Clark Professional. "We can go to work and attend events with our families and friends trusting that the many cleaners and FMs keep these locations safe.

"We are delighted to announce the launch of the Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards 2024 where we will acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of our industry colleagues."

Entries are welcome from all FM and contract cleaning companies across the UK and Ireland. There are 18 categories that recognise excellence and the achievement of the highest standards in the industry. The 2024 Awards launch on 18th July 2023 and you can enter between then and 27th October 2023, with finalists to be announced on 4th December 2023.

To honour the achievements of the industry in diverse and challenging times, there will be two new categories: a 'Social Impact Award' recognising positive impact on people and communities, and a 'Cleaning Team of the Year Award' for outstanding contributions.

To support all entrants, Kimberly-Clark Professional will host a webinar on Wednesday 26th July in addition to distributing a comprehensive 'how to enter' guide. The webinar will also feature support and guidance from the British Institute of Cleaning Science, which independently oversees the judging process, and Suzanne Howe Communications, the Awards' organisers. Details about the webinar and how to attend will be announced soon.

The sponsors include a new gold sponsor, Kärcher, and returning silver sponsors, Nationwide, and Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene Supplies, which are joined this year by a new silver sponsor, Soap20, and a new bronze sponsor, BioVate Hygienics. Welcomed back for the 2024 awards is the Irish Contract Cleaning Association (ICCA), event category sponsors for Inclusion and Diversity.

"We are very grateful to all our sponsors that support the Awards and continue to help us make this special industry event possible," says Craig. "It is our flagship event in the UK and Ireland, and we look forward to discovering how the cleaning and FM industry continues to excel in reaching incredible new heights."

Silver, bronze, category, and table sponsorships are still available. The sponsorship programme will run from the summer 2023 and culminate in the awards ceremony in May 2024. Sponsors benefit from extensive PR and social media coverage, excellent branding opportunities and top-level networking.
