The Cleaning Show 2017 saw over 5,500 professional trade attendees including the great and the good from the cleaning and hygiene sector over three days ExCeL London, 14-16 March. Approximately 10% of the visitors travelled to London from overseas to network and place orders with the UK companies exhibiting.
Highlights included the free-to-attend seminar programme which attracted over 1,000 visitors who gained expert advice on health and safety, growing your business and an insight into the future and the new frontier of robotics.
The Window Cleaning Challenge was as always very popular, with over 30 contestants taking on Terry ‘Turbo’ Burrows, however Terry’s Guinness World Record still remains unbeaten. Winners on the day Steve Fox, Glenn Bailey and John McClean each walked away with £250 cash with 14.02 seconds, 14.63 seconds and 16.39 seconds respectively. Terry even attempted to break his own record, but wasn’t able to get under the 9.14 seconds he set in Blackpool in 2009.
Feedback from exhibitors has been incredibly positive with many praising the quality of the people who attended and confirming that they had taken considerable orders during the event. Many companies have already booked their stands for the UK’s largest cleaning and hygiene event in 2019 when it returns to London 19-21 March.
The next event for your calendar is the Manchester Cleaning Show which will be held 11-12 April at Event City. The Manchester event attracts a more regional crowd, but is expected to see over 2,500 trade visitors.
