2018 ISSA Innovation Award Program Open for Submissions

ISSA is thrilled to call for entries for the 12th annual ISSA Innovation Award program.
The program serves as a platform for exhibitors at the ISSA Show North America to launch their product and service innovations, which are voted on by cleaning-industry distributors, building service contractors, residential cleaning contractors, and in-house service providers prior to the show.

“The ISSA Innovation Award program gives inventors, innovators, and the best and brightest in the cleaning industry an opportunity to showcase what they do best,” said industry expert and 2016 ISSA Innovation Award program judge, Holly Borego, of C&W Services. “The ISSA [Show] North America is the only place where you can see the significant technological strides made in the cleaning industry right in front of your eyes.”

The ISSA Innovation Award program features the latest products and services from top manufacturers and suppliers throughout the cleaning industry worldwide. Entries are organized into five categories—Cleaning Agents, Dispensers, Equipment, Services and Technology, and Supplies and Accessories. Each entry vies to earn an ISSA Innovation Category Award and, ultimately, the top honor, the ISSA Innovation of the Year Award.

All entries will appear online for members to vote at www.issa.com/innovate. Then, all entries will be on display in the ISSA Innovation Marketplace & Lounge, Booth 3405, throughout ISSA Show North America 2018, which takes place October 29–November in Dallas, TX.

“Part of our mission is to drive the cleaning industry forward,” says ISSA Digital Marketing Director Lou Centrella.  “The ISSA Innovation Award program helps accomplish this by supporting and recognizing the latest in products and services our industry has to offer.”

Companies exhibiting at the ISSA Show North America wishing to enter the ISSA Innovation Award program can choose from the Standard and Premium entry packages or a new Custom package. “The Custom package is designed, in part, by the ingenuity of the entrant,” Centrella explained. Details for all packages can be found at www.issa.com/innovate.

Online voting for the ISSA Innovation Category Award program begins August 1 and continues through October 19—just days before the opening of ISSA Show North America 2018. “Since voting will be online only this year, we extended the deadline to be sure all those interested have plenty of time to vote,” said Centrella.

Online votes will be tabulated and combined with those of a panel of judges made up of industry professionals and the media to determine a winner in each category, plus the overall innovation of the year.
Category Award winners will be announced during the Team ISSA Welcome Reception, Monday, October 29, 7:30 p.m.¬¬–10:30 p.m. The ISSA Innovation of the Year Award will be announced at the ISSA Innovation Award ceremony to take place at the Innovation Marketplace & Lounge, Booth 3405, at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 1.

The deadline for entries is July 16, 2018. Exhibitors wishing to submit products and services to the ISSA Innovation Award program can visit www.issa.com/innovate or contact Mikel Gabrielson or Iris Weinstein, phone, 847-982-0800.
