A brand new cleaning show is heading to Manchester on the 6th and 7th of April. Held at Event City, The Manchester Cleaning Show 2016 follows on from its successful London event and is being organised by the British Cleaning Council and Quartz Business Media. CHT looks ahead to see what attendees can expect as well as talking to exhbitors to get their views on the event
The Manchester event is expected to be smaller and more regionally focused than the London show, however there will still be dozens of exhibitors and a full seminar programme. The keynote speaker will be that Andreas Lill, director of the European Federation of Cleaning Industries who will talk about the European perspective on the cleaning industry.
One of the companies that have signed up to exhibit next month is Jangro, the UK’s leading network of janitorial supply companies, which provides products and services through 42 distributors nationwide and Jangro is getting the second quarter of the year off to a flying start as it crosses The Manchester Cleaning Show off its ‘must do’ list for 2016.
This will be the fifth time Jangro have attended The Cleaning Show, having previously exhibited at the Birmingham event. The Manchester Cleaning Show will provide a fantastic opportunity for the company, whose Head Office is based in Bolton, to support its Northern based members as well as showcase its portfolio of fantastic products to a smaller regional audience.
One of Jangro’s newest additions to its impressive portfolio is a brand new website for its award-winning suite of training modules, ‘Learning Management Solution’ (LMS), which will be showcased throughout the two-day event at Event City.
Jangro’s LMS website enables companies to ensure their staff are fully trained in correct product and working procedures following a quick and easy online registration process. Free voucher codes, available from Jangro’s stand, will give visitors exclusive access to the online training modules, allowing them to get started with the programme from the get go.
As well as the online training programme, Jangro is also looking forward to showcasing its environmentally friendly range of products, Enviro Concentrates. The entire range of concentrate cleaning products has been developed by experts with the aim to reduce users’ carbon footprints with every use.
Using products with a high concentration allows for a lower dosage and consequently a reduction in the amount of packaging and volume of waste created while each portable, easy to handle bottle gives cleaners accurate doses for the job in hand.
Jangro’s Enviro Concentrates is one of four ranges that separate its 4,000-product portfolio. Its other ranges include Premium, Professional and Contract which all have full technical specifications alongside information provided by Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) and Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulations (CLP).
Joanne Gilliard, operations director at Jangro, said: “We are expecting a smaller, more regional audience at The Manchester Cleaning Show, in comparison to the show in Birmingham. This will enable us to network with like-minded companies in the industry as well as generate some great leads for our current, nationwide members.
“We are really looking forward to this year’s Cleaning Show. It’s a key event that brings the cream of the crop in the industry together, allowing us to meet and share ideas on best practice and product innovation!”
Another exhibitor will be Floorbrite who have spent the last 40 years building a reputation as the north’s largest contract cleaning and facilities management company.
Throughout the two day Cleaning Show at Manchester’s Event City, Floorbrite can be found at stand F05 where visitors will be able to challenge themselves to a cyclone challenge! Catch as many balls as you can in the cyclone machine within an allotted time and the person who catches the most balls will win a Zanussi Air Speed Lite Bagless Upright vaccum and a bottle of bubbly!
