AEO Excellence Awards 2024

We’re thrilled to share that The Cleaning Show, Manchester has been shortlisted for Best UK Tradeshow less than 2,000 SQM at the AEO Association of Event Organisers Excellence Awards 2024.

This years show was truly historic, boasting a record-breaking attendance and even securing a Guinness World Record. Good luck to all the finalists on 14 June.

“It’s always a huge compliment to be recognised by your own industry for achievements on events you’ve organised. We were shortlisted in 2023 for The London Cleaning Show which is our flagship event. The Manchester Cleaning Show is a smaller but hugely important regional event for the North of England and Scotland and to again be shortlisted means our hard work is paying dividends.

The great thing about London and Manchester, is the support we get from the UK cleaning & hygiene sector, both from our exhibitors and visitors, who turned up in record numbers at both events. Rest assured we’ll continue to work hard to keep our events vital to the sector and hopefully being shortlisted again.” – Paul Sweeney, Event Director (The Cleaning Show).


Our May Events

Meet the Buyer, UK (World Vape Show)

On the 08 May we held a Meet the Buyer, UK event at the Eastside Rooms in Birmingham.

“It was great to return back to the UK with the Meet The Buyer format after hosting the event in Poland and the Philippines earlier in the year. With plenty of representation from the UK’s leading buyers, the event consisted of high level networking and face to face meetings with some of the market’s leading players. Next stop.. Dubai!” – Cem Tuna, Sales Director (World Vape Show).


Glassman, Latin America

Our glass team (Glass International) hosted a successful Glassman Latin America event in Mexico City on the 15 and 16 May.

It was the largest Glassman Latin America event in terms of exhibitor space booked and visitors, bringing together not only technology suppliers and glass manufacturers from Mexico but visitors from the USA, Brazil, Europe and the Caribbean.

The trade show hosted more than 100 exhibitor companies while a parallel two-day conference featured 24 presentations from industry experts focused on glass manufacturing and processes to make it more efficient.

Exhibitor Hans Mehl, CEO of MGFS has exhibited at Glassman for 12 years and described this year’s show as ‘the best with two days of serious discussions’, while fellow Mexican glass companies Interglass and FAMA described it as an ‘amazing event’ and ‘very good, very interesting with a lot of customers at the show’, respectively.

Greg Morris, Conference Director, said: “We would like to thank our valued customers and visitors for making the event a success. Many took the time to travel from all parts of the world to be there and connect with the glass community.  The support of our exhibitors, partners and visitors has been essential to the success of Glassman Latin America 2024, and we appreciate their commitment to our industry.”
