LINCOLNWOOD, IL — To further strengthen visitors’ return on investment ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, has expanded attendee attractions for this year’s ISSA/INTERCLEAN® North America, November 4-7, in Orlando, Florida.
In 2013, based on attendee requests for more time to spend with exhibitors, ISSA successfully extended the trade show schedule and centralized the experience by locating the keynote speaker stage right on the show floor. In addition to bringing those benefits back in 2014, ISSA is stepping up its game with a new round of exciting additions in Orlando. Full details are available at www.ISSA.com/show, and registration is open at www.ISSA.com/Register.
This year’s show will feature the largest number of exhibitors in show history (find them at www.ISSA.com/Exhibitors), plus four keynote addresses, an expanded four-day education schedule, the inaugural ISSA Excellence Awards Luncheon, an ISSA LinkedIn Reception, more co-located industry events, and discounted theme park tickets for attendees present on the final exhibit day.
ISSA has scheduled a Fabulous Friday Finale featuring two iconic keynote speakers during the final exhibit day: champion basketball coach Rick Pitino, co-sponsored by the Building Service Contractors Association International (BSCAI), and famed former boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard.
Leonard will headline the new ISSA Excellence Awards Luncheon at the close of Friday’s exhibit hours, where the 2014 ISSA Innovation Award Program winners and Best Customer Service Award winners will be revealed. ISSA members that have reached significant member milestones also will be honored during the complimentary luncheon.
Friday’s complimentary luncheon is sponsored by the American Association of Cleaning Equipment Manufacturers (AACEM), which is comprised of the following exhibitors: Amano Pioneer Eclipse Corp.; Aztec Products, Inc.; IPC Eagle Corp.; Karcher North America, Inc.; Minuteman International, Inc.; Nilfisk-Advance; NSS Enterprises, Inc.; ProTeam, Inc.; and Tennant Co. Attendees must select this event during their registration to guarantee a seat.
Friday’s attendees also will have a chance at winning a photo opportunity with Pitino as well as one of multiple autographed boxing gloves from Leonard.
Following the ISSA Excellence Awards Luncheon, Friday attendees can take advantage of additional educational sessions on critical trends, leadership, and other hot industry topics.
But that is not all! ISSA is sweetening the pot with discounted SeaWorld, Universal Studios, and Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park tickets only available for Friday attendees.

Further strengthening the opportunities to learn and network at the 2014 show is the addition of new co-location partners. The Cleaning Equipment Trade Association (CETA) will hold its annual convention, which draws an audience of pressure washing professionals. The International Window Cleaners Association (IWCA) also will offer a training workshop during the convention. These events join the returning IEHA Annual Convention, BSCAI Annual Convention, and the Association of Residential Cleaning Services International (ARCSI) Annual Convention. Multiple distributor marketing groups also will return to host member events during the week.
Another new feature visitors should take note of when scheduling their time at the show is the ISSA/INTERCLEAN Bistro. At the Bistro, which requires reservations, show participants can elect for high quality meals right on the show floor. Reservations can be made at www.ISSA.com/Bistro.
Attendees also can secure private space in the ISSA Meeting Hub on the show floor for use with peer, customer, or staff meetings. To reserve a meeting space, visit www.issa.com/meetinghub.
Another great networking opportunity will be the ISSA LinkedIn Reception, which will be hosted right on the show floor Thursday, 4:00 p. m.-5:00 p.m., at the ISSA Resource Center. If you are a member of this online networking group, visit the Membership Desk in the Resource Center to pick up your ribbon and drink coupon prior to the reception.
