Every year ISSA/Interclean North America has a trade show extravaganza in one of 3 cities in the US. This year’s ISSA took place in sunny Las Vegas, NV in mid-September showcasing up and coming technologies. It’s a manufacturer’s platform to unveil the next generation of cleaning technology and innovation.

Each year thousands of visitors walk through hundreds of booths worth of the latest janitorial supplies and equipment while touching, feeling, seeing demonstrations and the like. The 2017 ISSA/Interclean Trade Show featured an outdoor exhibit area and displayed various improvements to Janitorial Industry products and cleaning processes including: Smart Technology, Robotics, UV light, Self-Cleaning Surfaces, Infection Control, and more.

Not only are innovations showcased but ISSA/Interclean also lined up over 60 education seminars, training and certification workshops. Some popular key note speakers this year were Troy Aikman, Howie Mandel, Jim Messina, Karl Rove, Brian Beaulieu, Scott Deming and more.
