Manchester Cleaning Show Celebrates Record Attendee Numbers

Manchester Cleaning Show Celebrates Record Attendee Numbers
25 March 2024

Over 2,558 people attended the annual Manchester Cleaning Show – its busiest show to date.

There were 85 industry exhibitors at the event, as well as over 40 speakers from organisations such as the British Cleaning Council, Birkin, Reckitt and Killis.

One highlight was the window cleaning competition, with Aliscia Burrows posting a time of 16.13 seconds, beating the previous record by just 0.15 seconds, to be crowned as the new women’s window cleaning world record holder. Aliscia and her father Terry are now the first father-daughter record holders for men’s and women’s window cleaning.

The show’s organisers are hopeful for a similar turnout at next year’s show, at ExCel in London, between 18th – 20th March 2025.

Event director for the show, Paul Sweeney said “We are thrilled with the attendance at this year’s Manchester Cleaning Show and the positive feedback we have received from exhibitors and attendees alike.

“We are now looking forward to the next Cleaning Show in London and hope to welcome both new and familiar faces to learn about the industry innovations and insights for 2025.”

Delia Cannings, Chair of the British Cleaning Council, which co-produces the show, added: “This year’s Manchester Cleaning Show was a huge success and a fantastic experience. In my experience, the best to date.

"It was noticeable just how busy the show was. The buzz was electric, the vibe was so positive.  It is wonderful to see the show return to full strength following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and I want to thank everyone involved.”
