Hill & Markes hosted a successful Facility & Equipment Expo on Friday, May 14 at its facility in Amsterdam, New York. In fact, the event was in such high demand that Hill & Markes had to cut off registration prior to the event.

Returning face-to-face, the show featured industry leaders and cutting-edge technology that keeps facilities clean, safe, and healthy.

“Our expo was a huge success, the atmosphere, presentations, interaction, weather – just a tremendous day to welcome back our vendors and customers. We did it safely and it was well received by all,” said Joe Waite, vice president of sales at Hill & Markes.

Three presentations on the future of cleaning and restroom management from industry experts – Georgia Pacific, ISSA, and Kimberly-Clark – were well attended. The Hill & Markes Equipment Service Team also provided a variety of equipment demonstrations, including a Tennant robotic floor scrubber, throughout the day.

“The Hill & Markes Equipment Expo was a massive success as one of the first live events within our industry held in NY.  Bringing industry experts together with Hill & Markes customers in person for the first time in nearly a year brought so much joy and comfort to the attendees that desire immediate solutions to the world we live in today,” said Brant Insero, ISSA Director of Education, Training, Certification & Standards. “There will undoubtedly be significant lasting value to the customers of Hill & Markes that attended the event. I sincerely hope that those individuals who couldn’t attend will join Hill & Markes for future events being led by their new Hill & Markes Institute."
