Industry Experts Line Up For April’s Manchester Cleaning Show

29 March 2018

Some of the industry figures exhibiting and speaking at The Manchester Cleaning Show on April 11th-12th have revealed more details of what they’ll be bringing to the event.

Group CEO of Cleanology Dominic Ponniah, who will be presenting a session entitled The facilities sector in post-Brexit Britain, said of his forthcoming talk:

“Whether we like it or not, Brexit is one of Europe's defining geopolitical events of the decade, if not the century.

“It will affect all of us, directly and indirectly, and whilst the wrangling between the EU and UK continues for the next year, it is important we take steps now to prepare for the day when Brexit finally arrives.

“The cleaning and facilities sector will be one of the most heavily affected by Brexit, and it seems most of us have either 'switched off' when it comes to Brexit, or done little or nothing to prepare.”

Tobias Batkin, Managing Director of Bespoke Cleaning, will also be looking at the potential fall-out from Brexit.

In a presentation entitled Redefining entry level jobs - how the cleaning industry can lead post-Brexit he will be introducing some potentially innovative solutions to help plug the gap.

He said: “Almost two years on from the infamous vote, the British public is still none the wiser as to where the Brexit journey will lead them. In my seminar I will explore one near certainty: Brexit, whether soft, hard, or medium boiled, will result in reduced immigration. With the right support from government and the industry at large, cleaning companies might just have a once in a lifetime opportunity to turn public perception of their sector on its head.”

Exhibitors returning to Manchester after the show’s successful 2016 debut include Manchester-based Floorbrite Cleaning & Facilities Services.

Floorbrite’s Marketing Director Nina Wyers said: “In its debut year in 2016 our experience surpassed our expectations. Our stand with a seven-strong team struggled to cope with demand at times but it was a great opportunity to reinforce new and existing client and supplier relationships and to showcase our full portfolio of services.”

Another business returning to exhibit at the Event City venue is cleaning equipment specialists T.L. Killis, from Sheffield. Killis’ Managing Director Tibor Killis said: “Since we last attended The Manchester Cleaning Show in 2016, Killis has been very busy extended its product range and securing contracts with suppliers who are also committed to sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions.

“For example, we have developed a larger version of our award winning iMop and have created a battery powered iGum chewing gum removal cleaner.

"There will also be our new C5 battery powered vacuum cleaner on display, and we will be demonstrating how all of these pieces of kit can be powered using the same charging system.

“Manchester will also see us revealing more details of our recent partnership with the Canadian-based sanitation specialists Tersano Lotus Pro who are global leaders in smart sanitation systems.

“Visitors to our stand will be able to find more about their incredible breakthroughs in the production of stabilised aqueous ozone (SAO), which the simplest, safest, most sustainable way to clean. They can also try out the iClean mini Tersano Unit which we recently launched.”

Already set to be bigger than the first Manchester event in terms of floorspace, visitor registration figures also suggest it will be busier than in 2016 with over 1,000 people having already booked an entry ticket which are available free of charge.

In addition to cleaning, the FM sector will also be well represented, with The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) set to be exhibiting at the show for the first time.
