Roughly 50,000 Canadians are directly employed in the $2 billion a year cleaning sector and this year, those workers will be celebrated at the Salon de L’Ecosalubrité 2006 on November 8-9 at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.

Focused on the cleaning professional, Salon de L’Écosalubrité is produced by the Canadian Sanitation Supply Association (CSSA) and is one of the largest trade shows of its kind this year in Canada. More than 75 exhibitors, representing Canadian and international manufacturers and distributors of industrial maintenance products, will be featured in 140 booths before an expected audience of more than 1,300 industry professionals. End users of the products include hospital housekeepers, contract cleaners, environmental service managers, school and church custodians, hotel and motel housekeeping managers, window cleaners, plant managers, carpet cleaners, maintenance supervisors at casinos, private clubs, airports and shopping malls and maintenance managers from government installations.

Featured at Salon de L’Écosalubrité will be the latest in floor and window maintenance products; accessories such as mats and matting, safety products and waste and recycling containers; maintenance chemicals, disinfectants and environmentally acceptable alternatives; paper products and washroom products; computerized housekeeping and distribution systems; and power equipment, including everything from back-pack vacuum cleaners to high end warehouse ride-on vehicles. In addition to all that’s happening on the trade show floor, a seminar program will explore the hottest industry topics.

Admittance to Salon de L’Écosalubrité is free to CSSA members and end users of sanitary maintenance products. There is a $20 fee for non-member distributors of sanitary maintenance products and a $40 fee for non-member manufacturers of sanitary maintenance products.
