ISSA, Trade Press Media Group to Debut Clean Buildings Expo in March 2019
ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, and Trade Press Media Group have unveiled a new trade show for the commercial cleaning industry—Clean Buildings ExpoSM (CBE).
This joint venture will make its debut at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md., March 26-27, 2019.
Designed for end-users of cleaning products and equipment, CBE fills an immediate need for education and product information in the building-rich Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.
Show organizers of the new show anticipate approximately 1,200 key decision-makers from health care, education, government, and hospitality facilities, as well as building service contractors, to attend the two-day event.
CBE will be collocated with the annual National Facilities Management & Technology (NFMT) Show Baltimore.
“ISSA's strong relationship with cleaning equipment and technology suppliers and the success of our annual North America and other worldwide trade shows will encourage a wide variety of exhibitors to participate in this exciting new expo,” said ISSA Executive Director John Barrett.
He added, “Exhibiting companies will include manufacturers, leading industry suppliers of floor and carpet cleaning equipment, chemicals, restroom supplies, and green cleaning products as well as leading providers of cleaning and facility-maintenance services. CBE promises to be a very synergistic event.”
Jeff Schenk, CEO and president of Trade Press Media Group, is equally enthusiastic about the new venture.
“There is an unserved need in the commercial cleaning industry in the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic area, and this event closes that gap,” he said.
Shenk added, “The location and timing of the show will appeal to many significant buyers.”
CBE will also host a robust educational conference with more than 25 informative sessions addressing operational best practices, staffing and management strategies, and cleaning technologies.
Curated by ISSA in collaboration with Trade Press, the agenda will feature subject matter experts from a wide range of stakeholders in the cleaning industry, including building service contractors, in-house cleaning executives, and industry consultants.
“Education, training, and certification are the lifeblood of the industry,” said ISSA Education, Training, Certification & Standards Director Brant Insero.
He added, “Proper training and valid certifications can empower your staff to learn, grow, succeed, and invest in the growth of other industry professionals. ISSA and Trade Press are committed to elevating the standards of professionalism in the cleaning and maintenance industry, and the education sessions at CBE will deliver on that commitment.
