By Doug Cooke, chairman, British Cleaning Council.


Is it justme or is this year fly- ing past at lighting speed? We’re nearly at the end of summerwhich, for the British Cleaning Council, signals get- ting ready for our annual con- ference. I’mdelighted to announce that this year’s themewill centre around ‘Fu- ture proofing the cleaning in- dustry’. Our sector is one of themost flexible and adapt-


newentrants to themarket and could transformtheway we do business immeasur- ably. Companies are becom- ing larger and larger through expansion intomultiple areas of outsourced service provi- sion - often leading to a dis- connect between management and the end user. Though there are signs that thingsmay be on the up, whatwe had hoped to have been a short recession turned into one of the longest periods of stagnant growth that even themost longstand- ing cleaning industry figures have ever experienced. On top of thiswe are often


in a positionwhere contracts are decided overwhelmingly

on price. There ismuch to do as an industry to push issues such as the livingwage, day- time cleaning and environ- mental sustainability so that we are in a position to im- prove training, staff retention and our environmental im- pact. Socialmedia communi- cation is creating amore transparent sector alongside this -meaning thatwe have to


act fast to be able to articulate our position of support to gov- ernment,media and the end users of our services. I amconfident that the


British Cleaning Council Con- ference 2013will provide at- tendeeswith newskills to take back to their businesses, newideas and inspiration, and a viewofwhat could be coming up to catch the indus-


try out in the future. On top of themain conference,we’ll also be holdingwine tasting and networking events. I strongly advise that you buy your ticket early, and look for- ward to seeing you there. TheBCC AnnualConference takes place atLondon’s CentrePointConference Centre on28November 2013.


The Cleaning Show2015: London calling


As I imagine you’ve heard, the British Cleaning Council hasmade the decision - alongside our partner company Quartz BusinessMedia - tomove The Cleaning Show to London’s ExCel Ex- hibition Centre for 2015. As I’msure you’re equally aware, news travels fast in this industry, not least because we are a close knit community. This was not a decision wemade lightly. The Cleaning Show is a crucial event for the industry, as all profits are ploughed back into projects that benefit and support us, so every commercial decision has to ensure that we have our sec- tor at the front of ourminds. Themove to London will come as welcome news to those who have supported us at our pre-


vious location, to new exhibitors, and to those who have left the show over the last few years due to a perception that it didn’t have enough to offer. The UK cleaning industry is a diverse place, and wemust reflect that in an event that delivers to domestic cleaning, SMEs, suppli- ers, large outsourcing companies, and global propertymanagers alike. The ExCel gives us the opportunity to deliver something for everyone. Formore info please contact VanessaMartinet on: 01737 855041 or vanessamartinet@quartzltd.com.
