With just a month to go, over 5,000 pre-registered visitors from 57 countries have now signed up to attend The Cleaning Show 2015, taking place from 10-12 March for the first time at ExCel, London. With major companies such as Karcher, Kimberly-Clark Professional, TL Killis, SCA, Disposables UK and Nilfisk confirming their attendance, this year’s show in London is not to be missed.
The show will open with a keynote speech from Kyran Bracken (51 caps in rugby for England and ITV’s Dancing on Ice champion in 2007). Kyran will speak at 10.30am on Tuesday 10 March in the seminar theatre giving a motivational speech which will educate, engage and entertain the audience. He will be touring the show before and after his presentation.
All the latest innovative products impacting the cleaning sector, as well as some brand new interactive features for visitors, will be featured at the show. Cleaning and hygiene professionals and facilities managers will be able to try out products, learn from a wide range of free seminar sessions, get free careers advice, take part in small group training sessions on social media and staff management, as well as networking at a number of social gatherings.
