Manchester Cleaning Show still on track for October
02 September 2020
FOLLOWING A board meeting of British Cleaning Council Exhibitions (BCCE), board members have unanimously agreed that the Manchester Cleaning Show should be held as planned, at Event City in Manchester from 14-15 October 2020.
Following the UK government's announcement that trade shows can re-start on 1st October 2020, the BCCE board has announced that it is ready to host a safe and quality event experience for all event attendees.
In a statement, the board said: "The Manchester Cleaning Show is an important milestone for the cleaning and hygiene industry. As an industry we have had a vital role to play in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. The industry has demonstrated resilience, adaptability, and innovation, and it’s now really important that we come together to demonstrate a show of strength. To not only showcase the solutions that can help keep facilities safe well into the future, but to demonstrate to the wider business community that business can be done in a safe and productive way, by following enhanced hygiene measures."
The event will be the first opportunity that the industry has had to meet in person for many months, and the conference content will provide an opportunity for visitors to discuss many of the challenges facing businesses right now.
The BCCE board continued: "Event City as a venue is reopening in-line with the government-approved measures detailed in the All Secure Standard and has been accredited by Visit Britain as ‘good to go’.
"We understand that individual circumstances may influence people’s decision to attend. But the Manchester Cleaning Show team is working tirelessly with all those committed to exhibit or planning to visit to ensure their experience will be a really productive one. Together with the venue, we are confident that we can stage a safe event by following a strict cleaning regime, enhancing hygiene measures and enforcing a common-sense approach to social distancing and business.
"So subject to government guidance to the contrary, the Manchester Cleaning Show will take place from 14-15 October 2020."
