Over the past 2 years, we have seen many events and exhibitions being canceled, postponed and rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown regulations. Thankfully, 2021 has started to see a light at the end of the tunnel, and events season have returned, and we have certainly taken advantage of this as normality resumes. September has been an exceptionally busy month for our teams here at Cromwell, as we have been out at shows and exhibitions throughout most of the month, including RWM, RECOUP Conference, FPA Golf Day & InterPlas. But event season is far from over, and we have big plans for the rest of the year.
Our next big event is the LARAC Conference, where Darren and Alex Lee will be representing Cromwell. We are a proud LARAC Partner, which gives us a platform to engage at a higher level with Local Authorities and other members. We attend their annual conference each year, which involves 2 days of thought-provoking seminars, delivered by fellow industry experts. The live event attracts more than 400 visitors (including 170 different authorities) for two days of expert presentations, practical workshops, and second to none networking. Both Darren and Alex will be in attendance to network, catch up and learn.
Jangro Round Robin
Shortly after LARAC, we are attending a supplier event as Paul and Darren head to the Jangro Round Robin. We are proud suppliers to Jangro and the janitorial sector, and each year we get involved in their popular networking event. A uniquely styled event in which attendees move from table to table, speaking to all exhibitors – and Cromwell are looking forward to being a part of the event yet again.
HARROGATE DISTRICT NET ZERO BUSINESS CONFERENCE
A new event for us, and for the organisers Harrogate District Climate Change Coalition. The HDCCC holding its first district Climate Action Festival (CAFé) throughout October, and this event is a part of their month-long celebration. Being held on the 15th of October, the event is set to grab the interest of many as this year the UK is hosting the COP26 global UN climate summit. Cromwell has become a prime sponsor to the event, and as such will be in attendance at the event too, whilst also having a speaker slot, where Alex Lee will be discussing hot topics in the industry.
Resourcing the Future Conference
Our final event for October is another new one for our teams, the Resourcing the Future Conference, held by CIWM. Although no strangers to CIWM events, this is a debut event for us to attend, and Darren is excited to be a part of the action. Held in London, Darren will be in attendance through both event days, networking and attending the seminars, which are focusing on the theme of “change” – in particular, “change in the age of technological and societal acceleration”.
Cleaning Show – London
The big one for us is the Cleaning Show, which this year is being held in London at ExCeL. We have been exhibitors at the Cleaning Show for almost 2 decades now, and for 2021 we will be on stand C26, where our team Paul, Darren, Mike, and Alex are excited to greet and network. Showcasing our range of cleaning and janitorial products, including gloves, aprons, and waste sacks.
Our final event for 2021 is the Nationwide Conference, our 2nd supplier event. We have attended this event for many years now, and are looking forward to returning once again.
With more events planned for 2022, it will certainly be a busy time for our team – if you are attending any of these events and would like to come and see us, let us know – we would love to catch up.
