New App
Other new features taking the visitor experience to a new level include free Wi-Fi access and a new ISSA/INTERCLEAN app. This valuable networking tool is free to all visitors and enables them to instantly acquire and exchange contact information and exclusive content. The App offers a pocket-sized guide to the show with full exhibitor list, complete exhibitor profiles, a new product list, exhibition information and social media links.

“The new ISSA/INTERCLEAN App offers another opportunity for exhibitors and visitors to connect at the show,” says Rob den Hertog, Manager ISSA/INTERCLEAN. “In the App, exhibitors showcase their new products and provide company information. It makes it easier than ever match visitors and exhibitors and guarantees an improved trade show experience for both.”

ISSA Seminar program
The ISSA Educational Seminar program is a world-leading forum for debate and knowledge exchange, bringing together a mix of visionary keynotes, panel discussions and speed sessions with the most influential thought leaders, opinion formers and cutting edge organizations shaping the industry’s future.

Attracting top-level executives, technical experts and visionaries from around the globe, the conference affords exclusive access to valuable new insights and industry-leading contacts. Focusing on some of the biggest issues facing the cleaning and hygiene industry today, the program running on 10th and 11th May includes topics as diverse as: opportunities created by the circular economy, how to make the most of advances in data gathering, adapting to changes in the industry supply chain and growing profitability against a background of downward cost pressures. Further sessions will also look at the benefits of leasing rather than purchasing new equipment and how quality cleaning improves safety while lowering risk and cost.

The ISSA  seminar program also includes a series of industry trend updates taking place in the InnovationLAB. These are a series of 15-minute rapid-fire presentations designed to bring visitors quickly up to date with a range of industry trends and issues and will run from 12:00 to 14:30 each day.
