Impressive Number of New Features on Offer at The Cleaning Show 2013 19-21 March 2013 – NEC Birmingham

Organisers of The Cleaning Show are proud to announce an impressive number of new features at the next exhibition which will take place at the NEC in Birmingham from 19-21 March 2013.  With such a full programme of attractions, the largest number of exhibitors yet, as well as a co-location with the very popular IMHX 2013 event, The Cleaning Show 2013 is set to be the biggest and best ever.

The Cleaning Show is organised every two years on behalf of the cleaning industry by BCCE Ltd, a company jointly owned by the British Cleaning Council and Quartz Business Media.  Over 200 exhibitors, specialising in a variety of different sectors, will be present at the 2013 show, with over 50 exhibiting for the first time.

Martin Scott, Exhibition Sales Director, said, “We expect The Cleaning Show 2013 to attract a record breaking number of visitors and exhibitors and with The International Materials Handling Exhibition running alongside the show, a huge increase in visitor numbers from the warehouse sector is assured.  Exhibitors have one opportunity every two years to get their products in front of a massive buying audience – and they are certainly grasping this opportunity with both hands.”

Paul Thrupp, Director of Cleaning at OCS Group UK, adds, “The Cleaning Show is a must for our 2013 calendar.  Having visited the exhibition in previous years, it gives us the opportunity to see the huge number of new and innovative products and services that are on offer.  We would not miss the UK’s premier cleaning exhibition as it provides great value to our business.”

Highlights of the new features and attractions include:

Innovation Zone and Awards

The Cleaning Show Innovation Awards have continued to grow in stature and, for the first time, finalists will be featured in a new Innovation Zone.  Exhibitors will be able to upload innovations onto the show’s website and entrants can win either their sector or the overall award.  There will be nine different sectors in all as well as a “Best New Idea Award.”

Green Equipment and Services Pavilion

The Green Equipment and Services Pavilion will comprise a number of products and services from different companies, all developed to promote environmentally sensitive cleaning practises.

Laundry Zone

A brand new Laundry Zone has been added to the exhibition, specifically for laundry and dry cleaning companies as well as laundry trade associations.

Work-wear/Corporate Clothing Pavilion and Catwalk

Also new to the show will be a Work-wear and Corporate Clothing Pavilion which will include a catwalk where “fashion shows” will be staged throughout the three day event.

Business Zone

A Business Zone – featuring recruitment, IT, insurance, finance and marketing companies – will be featured for the first time.


The Cleaning Show 2013’s website will see new features added, providing both exhibitors and visitors alike with an efficient marketing tool for the exhibition.


A Twitter account has also been set up for the show – @TheCleaningShow – which will be used to showcase the companies involved and keep followers up-to-date with the wide range of activities taking place at the event.
