Featuring more than 500 exhibitors and 65-plus educational sessions, ISSA Show North America is the one week when the entire professional cleaning industry comes together for top-tier education, networking, commercial opportunities to grow business, and to showcase the latest innovative products and solutions.
“We are beyond excited to welcome back our audience to the first large scale face-to-face event in almost two years,” said Lindsay Roberts, group director, Informa Markets.
“With an elevated sense of importance around cleaning and its positive impact on human health and wellness, there is pent-up demand and excitement building for this year’s show.
“We’re so grateful for the loyalty over the last 18 months from our partners, exhibitors, and sponsors, and look forward to delivering an incredible and safe experience.”
Education sessions, certifications, and workshops
ISSA Show North America features a top-tier, extensive educational conference program inclusive of 65-plus sessions hosted November 15-18 (Monday-Thursday) in eight different curated tracks catering to specific industry segments.
In addition to the numerous education sessions, ISSA will host eight workshops, some of which grant certifications for attendees upon completing the course.
The program also will feature a Spotlight Lunch and Learn, Opening Spotlight Speaker, and Spotlight Power Panel.
“The conference program covers many other critical areas in addition to the tracks,” stated ISSA vice president of sales, trade shows, and media, Kim Althoff.
“To date, we have eight certifications and workshops on the schedule spanning all four days of the event.”
Other topical sessions cover business management, self-improvement, succession planning, emerging technologies, and infection control. More sessions will be added in the months ahead to address the latest trends and developments in the evolving commercial cleaning industry.
Innovation Awards program returns
Over the past 12 years, the Innovation Awards Program has empowered exhibitors and attendees to connect, educate, and network on the newest solutions to challenges faced by industry professionals.
In a newly envisioned program, featured products and services are eligible to win one of five Innovation of the Year Honoree Awards and the prestigious Innovation of the Year Award, announced in-person at the show.
For the 13th consecutive year, the Building Service Contractors Association International (BSCAI) and its 2021 Contracting Success Conference will co-locate with the annual ISSA Show North America in Las Vegas.
Additionally, ISSA Show North America welcomes the newly expanded program and track, K-12 & Higher Education Track (formerly Green Clean Schools track), presented by Healthy Green Schools & Colleges, which focuses on sustainable facilities management in schools and universities nationwide.
“All eyes are on the cleaning world in the wake of the pandemic,” said ISSA executive director, John Barrett.
“We look forward to welcoming industry professionals from across the globe to connect, network, and further enhance their knowledge of cleaning for public health and safety.”
