Sanitary Maintenance, along with its sister publications Contracting Profits and Housekeeping Solutions, will host the CleaningGreen Virtual Expo & Conference on May 11, 2010. The free, live online event will provide jan/san distributors, building service contractors, in-house service providers and facility executives with access to industry experts and suppliers that focus on green cleaning in the commercial cleaning market Ñ without having to leave their office.

Like a brick-and-mortar event, speakers and exhibitors will inform, interact and network with attendees. However, unlike a traditional trade show, the interaction is conducted via Webcasts, scheduled group chats and message boards.

The CleaningGreen Expo & Conference's exhibit hall will feature virtual booths of green cleaning manufacturers who can engage with attendees using live, online chat for private conversations. At the booths, attendees can also view demonstrations of the newest products and access additional product information.

Throughout the day, five education sessions will be held covering current, critical green issues, including sustainability, green cleaning legislation, new product certifications, green attributes of day cleaning, and exploring the partnership distributors can forge with their customers to create green programs.

The show also features a resource library where attendees can download case studies, articles and other important information. The lounge area will allow distributors to network and share information with colleagues as well as end users.

Registration is open now at Following the live event on May 11, the show will be archived on
