2018 ISSA Innovation Award Program Adds Entries

Voting continues for contenders—including several last-minute entries—in the 2018 ISSA Innovation Award Program. The program recognizes the cleaning industry’s most pioneering products and services as voted on by cleaning-industry professionals.

Entries are organized into five categories: Cleaning Agents, Dispensers, Equipment, Services and Technology, and Supplies and Accessories. Each entry is competing for honors in its own category and, ultimately, the 2018 ISSA Innovation of the Year Award. “The entries for 2018 are exciting visions for the cleaning industry going forward,” said ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “The ISSA Innovation Award Program is a positive way to identify and spotlight new trends in the cleaning industry and the companies that produce these advances.”

The October 15, 2018, voting deadline is fast approaching. All distributors, building service contractors, in house service professionals, and residential cleaners are urged to cast their votes at www.issa.com/vote.
