Voting Now Open for 2016 ISSA Innovation Award Program

ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, is pleased to announce that voting opens Monday, August 1, for the 2016 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, and in-house service providers.

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 (see the complete list of entries by category below). All exhibiting entries will be on display in the ISSA Innovation Showcase, Booth 4606, during ISSA/INTERCLEAN® North America 2016, in Chicago, IL, October 25-28.

“The products and services emerging this year have been fantastic, demonstrating true innovations in the industry,” says ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “The voters and judges have their work cut out for them in trying to select the winners!”

Voting for the Category awards remains open online through October 21, 2016. The winners of the Category awards will be announced at ISSA/INTERCLEAN on Wednesday, October 26, prior to former U.S. Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill’s ISSA Keynote Address.
