New content for a new year

18 January 2019

This year, Cleaning Matters celebrates 20 years in the marketplace and, to mark this, 2019 will see some brand new elements introduced into the portfolio. 

To begin with, Cleaning Matters is excited to announce the launch of its roundtable debates, which aim to educate and engage cleaning professionals on the hottest topics in the industry.

Each debate will be chaired by Cleaning Matters and involve a panel of renowned industry experts discussing firstly 'The Future of Washroom Hygiene', which will be held in May, and secondly how to 'Protect Your Staff, Premises and Bottom Line from Norovirus' , to be held in October.

Both events will be filmed and the content hosted via our digital and social platforms as well as written up to appear in the magazine. You can find out more, including an announcement of our first partners to join the panels here.

As part of our commitment to delivering thought-provoking content, this year also sees the launch of our sponsored columns inside the magazine.  

As regular readers of Cleaning Matters will be aware, the magazine is divided into sections that we believe, between them, cover the full spectrum of professional cleaning – from floorcare and industrial cleaning to infection prevention & control and sustainable cleaning. Each section contains the latest related products and services, and often feature-length articles that explore the key issues and trends taking place in the market.

In the fullness of time, each of these sections will be headed up by a sponsored column from a thought leader within our industry. Each spokesperson will draw on their knowledge and expertise to provide a unique insight into the goings on within the sector. In the January issue we are delighted to introduce the very first of these from Denis Rawlins, SEBO, ICE, GOJO and Diversey – we hope you enjoy reading them!

One of the reasons that Cleaning Matters remains the market leader 20 years on is its ability to evolve with the market. Recognising that facilities managers are having to take on more and more responsibility, the next logical step is to further enhance our content so that time-pressed facilities managers can not only source information about cleaning but a range of complementary products and services all in one place. 

As the organisers of The Facilities Event, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham every spring, we are in a strong position to do this. We look forward to bringing you our enhanced facilities management (FM) offering in our next issue, which will also include the first in a special series on recycling and waste management in partnership with RPC bpi recycled products.
