ISSA is pleased to announce that voting is now open for the 2017 ISSA Innovation Award program. The program recognizes the cleaning industry’s most innovative products and services as voted on by cleaning-industry distributors, building service contractors, in-house service providers, and residential cleaners.
The ISSA Innovation Award program features new products and services from top manufacturers and suppliers throughout the cleaning industry. Entries are organized in five categories: Cleaning Agents, Dispensers, Equipment, Services and Technology, and Supplies and Accessories. All exhibiting entries will be on display in the ISSA Innovation Showcase, Booth 709, during the ISSA/INTERCLEAN® North America 2017 Trade Show and ISSA Convention in Las Vegas, NV, September 11-14.
“This year’s emerging products and services are remarkable and truly embody our industry’s constant push to innovate,” says ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “Good luck to the judges and voters who have to pick just one winner from each category!”
Voting for the Category awards remains open online through Friday, September 8, 2017. The winners of the Category awards will be announced at 11:45 a.m., Monday, September 11, during the ISSA Lunch and Learn session at ISSA/INTERCLEAN.
Voting continues on-site, with show attendees able to view the products in person and cast votes for the Visitors’ Choice awards. The winners of these awards will be announced during the ISSA Innovation Awards Ceremony to be held at the ISSA Innovation Showcase, Booth 709, Thursday, September 14, 2017, at 2:00 p.m.
The second annual overall ISSA Innovation of the Year Award will also be presented by popular comedian and TV personality Howie Mandel during the ISSA Innovation Awards Ceremony. This overall winner will be picked by a panel of judges with a weighted rating system based on a combination of the online and on-site voting results. The panel of judges consists of industry experts, media, and member representatives.
