According to many cleaning companies based in the north of England, the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ needed its own Cleaning Show, and now it has one. The 6th & 7th April 2016 Manchester Cleaning Show will be a long awaited event, held appropriately enough at the modern Event City venue in Manchester.

The much vaunted Northern Powerhouse embodies the same industrial and entrepreneurial spirit that made the North of England into the ‘Workshop of the World’ more than 150 years ago, continuing today with major investment around the Airport, the city centre and in the surrounding infrastructure.

Any visitor to today’s bustling Manchester can see that the area is busy and expanding rapidly. There are new and bigger trains under order by all the North West train companies, new road schemes, and plans for a £15billion transport network that will help make Manchester the hub of the Northern Powerhouse.

All these investment schemes need cleaning and maintaining.

With what has been described as the ‘first serious cleaning show in Manchester for 25 years’ on the horizon, companies both locally and from further afield can ill afford to let it pass them by.

Organised by Quartz Business Media and the British Cleaning Council – the same partnership that gave the UK its first national Cleaning Show in London

6 | Tomorrow’s Cleaning January 2016

for almost as many years, and with the blessing and support of most if not all of the cleaning industry trade bodies, the Manchester Cleaning Show ought to be another resounding success.

But only if the industry itself takes part, as either exhibitors, or as visitors.

Well known names will indeed be there as exhibitors: Kärcher, anti- slip specialists Bonasystems, major northern contract cleaner Floorbrite, Nilfisk, SEBO, Prochem, and Unger, to name but a few. The consensus is that many other major players will visit, no doubt considering their stands for 2018.

One of the most consistent voices galvanised into promoting a separate but associated cleaning show in the North is cleaning chemicals manufacturer Greyland.

Located just seven miles east of the Manchester City Centre, Greyland had long anticipated a Northern region event in place of the Midlands show at the NEC.

Reflecting the burgeoning growth of the North in general, Greyland in particular has grown year on year (it is now in its 18th year) and has virtually doubled in size since the 2012 move to its new factory.

In line with the renewed, confident North, Greyland has a prominent stand booked close to the show entrance where they look forward to seeing customers old and new.

“We are expecting many existing distributors from all over Northern England, the Midlands, Wales, and maybe some from Scotland and perhaps even the South of England too”, said Greyland’s Richard Dyson.

So as well as cleaning chemicals, there will also be some of the latest machines and consumables coming to market, available to view and drool over at the show, and as ever, key innovations that can save you time and money.

If you are thinking of taking a stand, Quartz have made it more affordable than ever for you to present to your ‘local’ market. But according to Richard Dyson, it doesn’t matter so much if you come as an exhibitor, or as a visitor, as long as you come.

He said: “Let’s do our bit as an industry in satisfying the cleaning needs of the Northern Powerhouse, and grow – together!”
