The American Cleaning Institute held its 91st Annual Industry Convention last month. The event attracted more than 960 industry executives. In addition to getting regulatory updates from ACI staff and international organizations, attendees had the opportunity to hear, unfiltered, what consumers think about their products. In addition, the event gave members the chance to support Cleaning for a Reason and Clean the World charities, as well as take part in a range of social events.
