About the conference programme

Neil Nixon, Conference Director, said: “The UK cleaning sector continues to face significant challenges and opportunities across a diverse range of issues. This year’s conference programme will reflect this, and will offer visitors an opportunity to hear current thinking from industry experts. With our new Speakers Lounge, visitors to the Cleaning Show 2017 will also have the opportunity to follow up with any of the speakers, in private, to dig deeper into discussion topics. I am confident that this will be the best Cleaning Show Seminar Programme to date, and I look forward to welcoming visitors, free of charge, to the event.”
