FAB TEAM UP ISSA has partnered with Afidamp FAB to jointly develop and execute go-to-market opportunities for their members and the industry at large, on a global scale.

Under the joint project, ISSA and Afidamp will co-own the Pulire family of exhibitions and educational events, as well as develop new options to help connect members and share knowledge across the worldwide cleaning industry.

ISSA Executive Director John Barrett said: “ISSA’s goal is to increasingly help our members where they need it, globally, with an expanded set of go-to-market options. Afidamp FAB’s existing network of Pulire exhibitions and executive Forum events on multiple continents complement ISSA’s growing initiatives and events in complementary countries.


A number of new Council member representatives have been welcomed by the British Cleaning Council (BCC).

At a recent BCC meeting held at The Manchester Cleaning Show 2018, the BCC’s Chair Stan Atkins formally introduced Kim Phillips (ABCD), Stephen Bloye (BACHE) and Ian Andrew (BPCA) as new Council representatives for their respective organisations.

Stephen replaces former BACHE representative Anthony Tyrell, Kim

“We see this as a great opportunity to share expertise between the two organizations to reimagine how the industry can do business on the world stage.”

All ISSA members will receive a discount to exhibit at the Pulire Verona exhibition 21-23 May 2019, and all Afidamp FAB members will become members of ISSA and gain access to its full suite of member benefits. The partnership also plans to develop new projects, including an expanded series of Forum executive summits on multiple continents.

Afidamp Executive Director Toni d’Andrea said: “Over the last 15 years, Afidamp has created an international platform, Pulire, aimed to satisfy the cleaning industry’s interest in many developing countries. Our goal is to open a dialogue among these countries to coordinate actions, qualify contacts, share experiences, and strengthen the importance of cleaning as an absolute social value.

has replaced Simon Hollingbery, and Ian has stepped into Simon Forrester’s role.

Simon, a previous Chair of the BCC, has now re-joined the BCC as Company Secretary following the departure of Pat Wherton. He will work closely with Patrick Jongbloet, who joined the BCC’s secretariat last year, alongside Chair Stan Atkins and Deputy Paul Thrupp.

Stan Atkins said: “While we are sad to see individual member representatives leave the BCC, it’s great that the organisations they

“Afidamp and ISSA working together will further this mission by setting more ambitious, new global projects.”

ISSA International Service Vice President Dianna Steinbach added: “The world is increasingly more connected, and cleaning industry leaders have begun to recognise that the largely localised and fragmented nature of associations and industry events no longer fits today’s demanding business model. We must come together to find common efficiencies and evolve how we meet the world’s growing commercial and institutional cleaning needs.”

represent are always keen to put forward new people to join the Council. I therefore warmly welcome Kim, Stephen and Ian to the BCC and look forward to working with them across a range of key industry issues and campaigns with our other members.

“With Simon as Company Secretary, having recently been the BCC Chair, it gives us a great opportunity to establish some continuity in the organisation.

“The Chair and Deputy roles change every two years, so not only will Simon bring his valuable experience gained as Chair to the organisation, he will also be able to support the incoming Chair and Deputy when myself and Paul Thrupp step down next year.

“However, by the same token, the reason Simon’s new role became available was through the departure of Pat Wherton. Pat has done a marvellous job for the Council over the last few years and she will be sorely missed by everyone.” 6 | WHAT’S NEW?
