//The Cleaning Show 2011 – the countdown begins!
The organisers of The Cleaning Show 2011, being staged at Birmingham’s NEC on 1-3 March 2011, are making the final preparations to ensure that the event lives up to its billing as ‘the cleaning industry’s unmissable event’. And with stand sales still buoyant, the Cleaning Show 2011 looks like being the best ever.
Martin Scott, exhibition sales director, said: “The Cleaning Show 2011 is on course to be bigger and better than ever before, and is expected to attract a record-breaking number of visitors and exhibitors. In the last month alone we have added over 30 new exhibitors, and demand for the remaining space shows no sign of abating. Add to this the recent launch of our Priority Pass scheme – enabling visitors to register online ahead of the event – and the 2011 show looks set to be a record breaker.”
Amongst the new exhibitors are major international businesses including Hagleitner, Fimap, Delphis Eco, Activeon and Ecover.
The Cleaning Show is organised every two years on behalf of the cleaning industry by BCCE Ltd, a company jointly owned by the British Cleaning Council and Quartz Publishing & Exhibitions Ltd, publisher of C&M.
Some 200 exhibitors will be at the 2011 show, with over 70 exhibiting for the first time. In addition to the show itself, The Cleaning Show 2011 will feature several other attractions:
The Cleaning Show Innovation Awards have continued to grow in stature, taking a further step forward in 2009 with a new judging process undertaken by industry experts. This year the organisers are further developing and improving the scheme. Neil Nixon, chair of the judging panel, said: “One of the limiting factors previously for the Innovation Awards was the small number of categories. To better reflect the diversity of products within the cleaning sector, we will be doubling the number of categories in 2011 – whilst maintaining our commitment to judge all the finalists on site during the first day of the Cleaning Show. The judging panel – which comprises recognised experts from all sectors of the cleaning industry – will be expanded to manage the anticipated increase in applications.”
Visitors to the Cleaning Show are increasingly looking for environmentally friendly products and this year the organisers are seeking to help them in their search by creating the Green Zone. The Green Zone will comprise a number of products from different companies, all developed to promote environmentally sensitive cleaning practices. Each exhibit will also be featured in an adjacent, free-to-enter, seminar programme. The previous event’s exit survey highlighted ‘green’ products as a major area of interest for visitors –the Green Zone has been designed meet the requirements of modern product and equipment specifiers, purchasers and users.”
