Recent developments worldwide relating to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic led to a consultative decision by the organisers of Africa’s leading trade show for professional cleaning and hygiene to be re-scheduled to a summer season timeslot.
The Cleantex Africa exhibition will now take place from 2 – 4 November 2021 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
“The decision to change the dates for this event address two issues, firstly to move from a traditional winter season event to a summer period and secondly, to co-locate a major drawcard, the SAPCA Cleantex Summit, to add a conference element, thereby further bolstering the attendance. The SAPCA Cleantex Summit is a collaboration between Cleantex and the South African Pest Control Association aimed at discussing industry issues and to build consensus on lessons learned and best ways forward in controlling the spread of pandemics such as COVID-19,” said exhibition director Johann van Vuuren.
For more than 23 years Cleantex Africa has provided the complete meeting place for cleaning and hygiene professionals. Never before has cleaning and hygiene for health been more relevant than now. The coronavirus pandemic raised the profile of the professional cleaning industry significantly, thereby driving the industry to adapt and evolve faster than ever before.
“By moving the exhibition to November this year, co-locating with a dual industry Summit and with the second phase of South Africa’s COVID-19 vaccination rollout to commence on 17 May 2021, we hope to offer a niche event where innovations can be presented to an African audience in a safe environment to initiate business,” added van Vuuren.
