The Manchester Cleaning Show is set to be the first major trade event to take place in Manchester post-lockdown, after it was rescheduled to 14th – 15th October this year.
Show organisers announced the dates after the Government shared guidelines for business-to-business events to reopen from October first. The premier cleaning and hygiene event in the North of England, the show usually attracts over 2,000 visitors.
Free to attend, the show will take place at EventCity and will showcase the vital role the sector has played in tackling Coronavirus, highlighting how the industry can continue to support the economy to reopen safely.
Set to be the biggest edition so far, the show will feature national and international exhibitors, an exciting conference programme of talks, a chance to connect with industry colleagues and many opportunities for business deals.
All existing bookings, content and visitor registrations remain in place and will be transferred automatically to the new dates.
The venue and show team are taking extreme care to ensure the event can go ahead as safely as possible. Measures set to be put in place include scheduled times for exhibitors to set up stands, sanitiser stations throughout the exhibition and an innovative registration process to eliminate human contact. There will also be a one- way system and face masks will be available for all.
Paul Thrupp, Chairman of the British Cleaning Council, said: “The Manchester Cleaning Show will be an important place to be this October. Through challenging times, the cleaning industry has been resilient and innovative.
“We have much to discuss, much to share, and much to showcase. And we must say thank you to those suppliers and cleaning operatives who have played a critical role in keeping our communities safe.”
