This week our team headed to the capital for the 2021 Cleaning Show at the ExCeL. A show which we have attended for many years, the team arrived in London prepared for a busy week of networking and thought-provoking discussions, and the exhibition did not disappoint.
Initially planned for March 2020, but canceled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, it finally got rearranged for the 2nd-4th of November. With many delays and rescheduling, the event soon became a highly-anticipated event for both exhibitors and visitors. Four members of our sales team, Darren, Mike, Alex, and Paul, were in attendance on the Cromwell stand, awaiting the arrival of visitors.
Armed with samples, product information packs, and hot topics ready to discuss, the team was ready and eager to greet and network. Lots of discussions were had over the 3-day event, with plenty of visitors to the stand, and conversations about many topics including the Plastic Packaging Tax, EPR and DRS schemes, and of course cleaning and janitorial matters.
As well as having a physical stand presence, MD James Lee was also asked to be a keynote speaker, on behalf of the CHSA. He delivered his speech on the first event day in the Conference Area, where lots of keen attendees heard his ‘Roadmap to Sustainability’ talk. James explained to the audience the CHSA’s new 5 pillars of sustainability ‘roadmap’ – described as an initiative to help members migrate towards environmentally sustainable business. The presentation was well received and harbored a lot of thought-provoking discussion by all who attended.
As well as speaking on behalf of the CHSA, we also were able to attend their member’s reception. The importance of good hygiene and cleaning strategies is always at the forefront of our minds, especially during COVID – it highlighted the importance of being members of the CHSA. We were joined by fellow CHSA members and industry experts for the networking event, which was a great way to reconnect with many familiar faces, we haven’t seen due to the pandemic.
Overall we had a successful show, both as exhibitors, networkers, and speakers at the 2021 Cleaning Show – which is our penultimate event of 2021. If you missed us at the show but want to know more about us, feel free to call us on 01977 686868 or email us: email@example.com.
