"It was a brilliant three days - there was a great buzz in the hall and it really did go beyond our expectations. I thought the exhibitors made a huge effort - the product demonstrations were superb, and their stands looked really bright and innovative. There were also a lot of good quality enquiries as well as direct sales made on the stands, which is something we were eager to achieve at this show. I'd like to thank everyone involved - it was a truly outstanding event, and a clear demonstration that the cleaning industry is in rude health."
Doug Cooke, speaking on behalf of the British Cleaning Council
"This is the best show we have ever attended. I am absolutely delighted that the decision to move to ExCeL has paid off. Traffic has been steady from the minute the doors opened."

"The quantity and quality of visitors has been excellent, extremely well attended from all market sectors. It's great to see the effort companies have gone to in designing their stands, and great to see the big boys back - it has really lifted the event. We have already booked for 2017."
