Vote for ISSA Innovation Awards

Forget Democrats and Republicans. Cast your vote for the professional cleaning industry’s most innovative products and services, as part of the ISSA Innovation Award Program, which 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.
Voting continues on-site, with show attendees able to view the products in person and cast votes for the Visitors’ Choice awards. The winners of these awards will be announced during the ISSA Innovation Awards Ceremony to be held at the ISSA Innovation Showcase on Friday, October 28, at noon.

New this year, an overall ISSA Innovation of the Year Award will be presented by Apple co-founder and Silicon Valley icon Steve Wozniak during the ISSA Innovation Awards Ceremony. This overall winner will be picked by a panel of judges with a weighted rating system based on the online and on-site voting results. The panel of judges consists of industry experts, media, and member representatives.
