And we can’t wait for this year’s event to match it, shining a well-deserved spotlight on the stars of our industry.

“We received some incredible entries and it wasn’t an easy task building our shortlist, but we feel that the 49 finalists that we’ve chosen thoroughly deserve their names in lights, in acknowledgment of their contribution to the cleaning and hygiene industry. We look forward to celebrating with our finalists and esteemed guest in Dublin this Autumn.”

From sustainability and diversity commitments, to technological innovations and training initiatives, the awards provide well-deserved recognition for those going above and beyond.
