With only three weeks left for online voting in the 2013 ISSA Innovation Award Program every vote counts as margins narrow.

This annual program provides cleaning-industry distributors, building service contractors and in-house service professionals the opportunity to choose which innovations in five categories will take home awards. The categories are Cleaning Agents, Dispensers, Equipment, Services and Technology, and Supplies. Current standings are listed below.

Voters have until November 15, 2013, to choose from 43 product and service entries online at www.issa.com/vote.

ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2013 attendees can see the entries firsthand on the trade show floor, November 19-21, in Las Vegas, at the Innovation Showcase, Booth 1785. Those who are eligible can cast their votes for five additional Visitors’ Choice awards. The 10 winning entries will be announced November 20 at ISSA/INTERCLEAN.
“By participating in the ISSA Innovation Award Program, distributors, wholesalers, and cleaning service providers help to shape the future of the industry,” says Anthony Trombetta, ISSA director of sales. “Their firsthand experience and expertise make them uniquely qualified to do so.”

The Innovation Award Program entries aren’t the only potential winners in this year’s edition. All eligible voters will be entered into monthly drawings to win one of four Google Nexus 7 tablets. Details about the drawings, including the current list of tablet winners, are available here.
