"This Event Is Postponed" written on cartoon door sign

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a recognized critical health emergency, the American Cleaning Institute (ACI) Industry Convention is being postponed until January 2022, announces ACI in a press release. Based on extensive surveying of member companies, in-depth assessments of travel policies and regulations related to the impact of the pandemic, ACI determined it is impossible to conduct an in-person event in Orlando in January 2021.

ACI asks members to continue to save the week of Jan. 25, 2021 for a members-only ACI Virtual Summit. This event will feature meetings of ACI’s expert standing committees, annual State of the Association address, policy and issue briefings, educational sessions on topics essential to the cleaning products industry and opportunities to network with industry peers.

Registration for the 2021 ACI Virtual Summit will open in mid-October and will be free to all ACI member company representatives.

“Although we will miss gathering in person, especially given the extraordinary value of the ACI Convention, we look forward to having you join us for the 2021 ACI Virtual Summit,” says Melissa Hockstad, ACI president & CEO. “As the cleaning products industry has demonstrated over the last several months, we are resilient, we are essential to public health and well-being and we will adapt successfully in the year ahead.”
