June 2021 Date Announced for Cleaning Show
04 February 2021
 

The UK’s largest cleaning and hygiene event will go ahead on 8-10 June 2021 at the ExCeL Centre in London.

Originally scheduled for March, the Cleaning Show will feature a wide range of national and international exhibitors as well as a conference programme of talks by industry figures and experts.

Organisers Quartz Business Media and the British Cleaning Council (BCC) have stated that they expect that by then, the worst of the pandemic will be over and that organised business events can take place safely and confidently.

Attracting more than 7,200 visitors, the London Cleaning Show is the UK’s largest cleaning and hygiene event.

 

Government-Approved All Secure Standard

 

Much like the Facilities Show, which recently announced it would go ahead this July, 

Quartz Business Media has worked closely with the Association of Event Organisers (AEO) in developing the government-approved All Secure Standard.

AllSecure was piloted in September 2020 and approved by the UK Government on 19 November 2020 as a model for running large events safely. It involves several health and safety measures, including deep cleaning, social distancing on-site, staggered arrival times and PPE, such as face masks. 

 

Show Highlights 

 

Highlights of the planned show include:

 

  • The highly-topical conference programme
  • The Cleaning and Support Services Association’s (CSSA) Innovation Showcase
  • A new, dedicated demonstration area
  • The return of the Window Cleaning World Cup
  • The Cleaning Show Awards

 

CSSA’s Innovation Showcase

 

The show is hosting the CSSA’s Innovation Showcase for the first time. It will celebrate the cleaning industry’s most innovative products, services and initiatives. Another new feature, the window cleaning and carpet cleaning village, will provide a chance to try the latest products on offer, attend workshops and network with equipment providers.

Stuart Dacre, Chief Executive Officer at Quartz Business Media, said: “The Cleaning Show in June will offer the first opportunity that our industry has had to meet in person following one of the most challenging times for the cleaning sector in a generation.

“So much has been achieved by cleaning professionals during the pandemic and the Cleaning Show promises to be a productive and safe environment whilst celebrating the role the industry has played in the fight against COVID-19.

“All existing exhibitor bookings and visitor registrations remain in place and will be transferred automatically to the new dates. We have been contacting exhibitors, visitors and speakers to inform them.

Paul Thrupp, Chairman of the BCC, added: “With so much uncertainty about the course of the pandemic over the near future, rescheduling the London Cleaning Show to June this year is the sensible thing to do. The safety of visitors and exhibitors will always be the top priority."

The biannual event is free to attend and you can register your interest as a visitor here.
