//The Cleaning Show moves to London
The Cleaning Show is the UK’s largest and only dedicated Cleaning & Hygiene event. The organisers BCCE ltd, a company jointly owned by Quartz Business Media and the British Cleaning Council have fortified its reputation over the years in bringing together an unrivalled UK event to source new products make new contacts and strengthen existing business relationships and debate issues within the Cleaning & Hygiene Services sector. The event established since 1972 now sees thousands of cleaning & hygiene professionals from around the world as the must attend event for the industry.
This year's Cleaning Show, which was held in March, it was co-located with a handling exhibition and out of the 11,000-plus visitors to the two events; just 5,300 were there specifically to visit the Cleaning Show.
The Cleaning Show needed to create a new platform and inject something new so decided to move the show to London following an overwhelming support for a London based event.
London is recognised as one of the world’s most important financial, cultural and business centres and with all the visitor attractions that London has to offer, it seemed like a logical move. Most of the major contract cleaning companies are based in London, together with key governments and public sector organisations which just reinforced the move to the capital.
The exhibition was not the only thing that the Cleaning Show had to offer this year. There was also a conference, gala dinner and a seminar programme which was supported by key industries and professionals. There was also a competition to try and beat the existing world record holder, Terry ‘Turbo’ Burrows, at cleaning three regulation sized windows.
Overall the move to London was a great success for the Cleaning Show and we can expect more great things from this exhibition in 2017.
