The Cleaning Show - What's new for 2023?

24 February 2023

The Cleaning Show returns to ExCeL, London from 14-16 March at the ExCeL in London. With over 6,000+ professionals now registered to attend, Cleaning Matters takes a look at what to expect.

VISITORS TO this year's Cleaning Show can expect three days full of international suppliers, a conference programme with leading industry experts and there are now more opportunities than ever before to trial new products, discover cutting-edge suppliers and source all of your cleaning requirements. 

The London Cleaning Show and The Manchester Cleaning Show are designed for cleaning and hygiene professionals, taking place on intervening years in Manchester Central and London ExCel. ExCeL London is right in the heart of London’s historic Royal Docks, just ten minutes from Canary Wharf and twenty minutes from the City. As one of the world's most connected venues, getting to ExCeL couldn't be easier. Train, plane, car, bus, taxi, boat, walking, cycling, or even a cable car.

The Cleaning Show events are jointly owned by the British Cleaning Council and Quartz Business Media and the British Cleaning Council invests its proceeds from the Manchester Cleaning Show back into the cleaning industry in the form of research, grants, consultation services, campaigns, and generating positive publicity for the sector.

The shows attract the industry’s biggest names, either as sponsors, exhibitors or conference speakers. This in turn ensures the event is attended by senior professionals - who want to gain insights into what is happening in their sector, experience all the latest products and innovations, participate in a cutting-edge conference programme, and enjoy two days of high calibre networking.

At this year's event there will be more than 7000+ cleaning and hygiene professionals visiting to see the newest and most innovative products available from leading industry suppliers from around the world.

More than 50 new exhibitors will be attending, including GreenTech Environmental Europe, SC Johnson Professional, Soap 2o and PMC Polythene.

 “The Cleaning Show is the largest janitorial show in the UK which allows us to bring innovation to the UK market," said Michael Griffiths, sales, Jangro.

" We get to connect and communicate with new customers and customer bases that we don’t see in normal day-to-day business. We have definitely generated some good leads throughout the show, by connecting with customers and suppliers that we’ve not seen for two years which will generate new business and revenue.”

Elysha Brown, marketing and comms, Kaercher added: "The show has been good and we've had some really busy periods on the stand. The footfall has been better than expected and we've seen high-quality visitors, over quantity. It's nice to be face to face with people once again, and have the opportunity to network and demonstrate our products." 

Robots Arena 

New for 2023 is The Robot Arena which will feature a number of exhibitors, showcasing machines that help create a more efficient cleaning strategy. There is an ever-increasing use of automated and autonomous cleaning machines within the industry. The latest trend is humans working together with robots and cobots to complete tasks in the most efficient ways possible. The Robot Arena will feature a number of exhibitors, showcasing machines that help create a more efficient cleaning strategy. Confirmed participants include: Cenozoic Robots, ice, Karcher, Killis, Nilfisk and Softbank Robotics.

Innovation Showcase

The CSSA innovation Showcase is back for 2023. This event celebrates the cleaning industry’s most innovative products, services and initiatives; particularly better solutions to social, political and environmental requirements, and existing market issues.

Window cleaning world cup

Take on challengers from all over the world for your chance to win the £1000 cash prize and be crowned the window cleaning world cup champion. Aim to beat the official fastest window cleaner in the world Terry ‘Turbo’ Burrows. Julia Ansbro, DA Components said: "We have been to the show before but our main reason for attending this year is to come for the Window Cleaning World Cup! We love it! We sell window cleaning products so looking at the relevant companies and what products they have on offer is great.”


The Cleaning Show Conference returns, encouraging learning, discussion and debate around some of the key topics facing the cleaning and hygiene sectors post-pandemic. Expert speakers from across the sector – including members of leading trade associations and industry organisations – will discuss the latest hot topics. Speakers include Jim Melvin, chairman at the British Cleaning Council, Neil Spencer-Cook, chief operating officer at BICSc, Lorcan Mekitarian, chair at CHSA and Craig Bowman, general manager at Kimberly-Clark Professional.
