Manchester City To Clean Up Next Week

The full programme for the second Manchester Cleaning Show has been announced - with the show opening its doors April 11-12.

Already set to be bigger and busier than the first Manchester event held in 2016, the two dayer at Event City will see a packed conference programme.

Issues focussed on will include raising professional standards, improving skills provision, the need for more robust and fair procurement practices and the impending recruitment crisis facing the industry.

The conference programme will start with a session called Preparing for the Future, which will see the British Cleaning Council present the headline findings from their recent in-depth research into the sector.

This will then be followed a series of themed sessions from a diverse range of speakers and organisations. Health and Safety will be very high on the agenda, with a series of workshops facilitated by the HSE.

The potential impact of Brexit on employment will also be discussed by Bespoke Cleaning Solutions, while the consequences of the UK leaving Europe from a more commercial perspective will be explored by contract cleaning firm Cleanology.

SmartTask will be examining the issue of improved efficiency, while experts from the worlds of sales, marketing and PR will be demonstrating how digital channels and integrated communications can boost customer engagement and drive new business.

Staffing, recruitment and employee wellbeing are set to be other key topics.



In the exhibition area Nilfisk, Karcher, Killis, Floorbrite, Bunzl, SmartTask, Host, Duplex, Greyland, Prochem, Dennis Rawlins, Sebo, Vaclensa, Telelog, Templa and UhUb will have stands alongside niche suppliers including Osprey Deepclean, RPC, Arrow County Supplies, Biovation, GermXit, Moreclean and Cromwell Polythene.

Suppliers to sectors such as healthcare, retail and leisure, transport, public buildings and window cleaning will also be well represented.

The British Cleaning Council and The British Institute of Facilities Management, who combined represent nearly every industry which works within the UK’s cleaning, hygiene, waste management and FM sectors, will also have dedicated stands.
