New city, new sights

04 February 2015

It's not just the venue that's changing for the Cleaning Show in 2015. The bi-annual event being staged from 10-12 March 2015 at London’s ExCel Exhibition Centre will also launch a series of new features, ensuring that visitors and exhibitors get full value from time spent out of the office

The thinking behind relocating The Cleaning Show from Birmingham to London was to transform the old Cleaning Show into a true industry event – a significant networking opportunity for the entire cleaning sector. 


This development, together with Mitie – the FTSE 250 strategic outsourcing company – supporting the event as Platinum Sponsor, has gathered lots of interest from both exhibitors and visitors across the cleaning and related industries, according to organiser BCCE, a company jointly owned by the British Cleaning Council and Quartz Business Media.


But that's not all the event has up its sleeve, visitors can also look forward to a new format at the 2015 show:

The Training Academy - This practical, hands-on ‘zone’ will provide attendees from all sectors of the industry with an opportunity to learn more about products and techniques, to get professional advice in business development, as well as a host of other topics designed to improve the way we work. 

The Cleaning Show Innovation Awards - The Cleaning Show Innovation Awards have been updated and improved. Broader categories – Cleaning Products; Floor Cleaning; Outdoor Cleaning; Carpet Cleaning; Window Cleaning; Washroom Hygiene; Sustainable Cleaning; and Management Systems – together with a panel of professional judges will ensure an awards programme that is better than ever.

A Free Seminar Programme - Featuring panels and presentations organised by the British Cleaning Council, the seminar programme will consider solutions to challenges currently facing the industry. Currently being fine-tuned, the programme will be announced soon.

The ‘London Calling’ Keynote Presentations - Hear from industry leaders, discussing the key challenges and opportunities facing today’s cleaning sector. 


The Exclusive VIP Lounge - This private area – constructed at the heart of the main exhibition – will offer visitors and exhibitors a venue to hold meetings and one-to-one discussions.

The Guinness World Record Attempt - Terry 'Turbo' Burrows, the world’s fastest window cleaner, is throwing down the gauntlet, challenging window cleaners from across the globe to take him on…and take his crown!

A Series of Social and Networking Events - The Cleaning Show, which is claimed to represent the largest gathering of cleaning professionals and hygiene experts in the UK, is the ideal place to attend meetings and network with customers and colleagues, old and new. A programme of social events has been devised, and a number of industry associations will be taking the opportunity to hold meetings and stage presentations during The Cleaning Show. 

Over 100 Industry-Leading Companies Showcased Within the Exhibition - The UK cleaning industry’s main producers and suppliers of leading machines, products and services will demonstrate their latest, cutting edge solutions. 

The show is aimed at everyone who has an interest in the commercial cleaning sector, from contract cleaning companies and in-house cleaning teams to facility managers from a wide range of industries.


Doug Cooke, chairman of the BCC, explained: "I cannot over-emphasise the importance of The Cleaning Show to this industry – it provides the vast majority of all income generated by the British Cleaning Council, and it is therefore vital for funding programmes that further professionalise and enhance our sector."
