In addition to participating in a full week of educational and networking opportunities, visitors will have the opportunity to attend various events recognizing achievements and innovations that will advance the cleaning industry for years to come.

One highlight of the ISSA Show is the Innovation Awards Program recognizing new products and technologies that have made a significant impact in the commercial, institutional and residential cleaning community in 2020. Now in its 12th year, the program recognizes 10 products and/or services in the industry, including four Industry Choice Awards, five Innovation of the Year Award Honorees and one overall Innovation of the Year Award winner.

Attendees can cast their vote online for their favorite product through Nov. 15 and see the nominees in person at the ISSA Innovation Showcase. The show culminates with the Innovation of the Year Award winner announcement and champagne toast, which takes place at the Innovation Showcase and Theater on the show floor on Thursday, Nov. 18. The ceremony will be followed by a happy hour, concluding what promises to be an eventful and insightful week.

With so many seminars, events and networking opportunities to choose from, facility cleaning managers will return home armed with the knowledge and best practices necessary to further their goal of cleaning for health and safety. For those who have the luxury of extending their stay, Las Vegas offers world-class casinos, entertainment and sightseeing opportunities. Many shows have reopened, including the popular Cirque du Soleil.

For those who prefer to wing it, a stroll along the strip at night offers the perfect vantage point for Vegas lights, hotels and attractions, such as the famous fountain show in front of the Bellagio Hotel. With a perfect mix of business and pleasure, the ISSA Show is certain to deal a winning hand to attendees come November.
