October's Manchester Cleaning Show Postponed to 2021

The organisers of the Manchester Cleaning Show have confirmed that the event will be rescheduled for September 2021, with a virtual conference replacing the original October date.

The British Cleaning Council Exhibitions (BCCE) Board will hold a virtual exhibition and conference on 14-15 October 2020.

 

"The industry has demonstrated resilience, adaptability, and innovation throughout this pandemic and we must thank all our exhibitors, visitors and speakers for your continued support and patience."

–BCCE Statement

 

"A Saddening Decision"

 

The industry show was due to be the first major trade exhibition to take place in the Manchester post-lockdown. In mid-August, the BCCE Board released a statement urging support for the event, to show the UK that business can take place when a clean environment is at its core.

However, today's official press statement says the decision to postpone was "saddening" but that "the latest government rules regarding social gatherings, and the ongoing local lockdown in the Greater Manchester Area" had forced them to reevaluate their plans:

"We have been, and remain, steadfast in our commitment to stage a much-needed physical exhibition and conference for the industry. We hope that the move to September 2021 will see us able to operate freely without social distancing restrictions, and ensures that we do not interfere or clash with other planned industry events.

"The industry has demonstrated resilience, adaptability, and innovation throughout this pandemic and we must thank all our exhibitors, visitors and speakers for your continued support and patience."

The statement says that exhibitors are being contacted individually, and those already registered to attend the Manchester Cleaning Show will soon receive an invitation and access details to enjoy the virtual version.
