The awards, which recognise standards of excellence in the professional cleaning industry, are the only pan-European awards for the sector and are organised by European Cleaning Journal (ECJ).

This year's winners will be revealed at a ceremony and gala dinner on October 17 in London, at The Church House in Westminster. There are 10 categories designed to recognise success and reward excellence in the cleaning and hygiene sectors. They are:

• Best use of smart solutions by service providers
• Investment in training
• Excellence in client/contractor partnerships
• Added value excellence by distributors
• Sustainability - best practice
• Commitment to diversity in the workforce
• Best initiative raising the profile of the cleaning sector
• Technological innovation of the year
• Leader of the year
• Rising star award

The awards are now in their fourth year. Michelle Marshall, ECJ editor said: "Building on the success of the past three years, we are thrilled to be hosting the European Cleaning & Hygiene Awards in London for the first time. Last year we received over 100 entries and we're looking forward to hearing more about the great achievements from across the sector this year.

"The awards are open to businesses from across Europe so if you can demonstrate excellence in any of the categories, we'd encourage you to enter."

Tom Lloyd of Principle Cleaning Services, which won two awards in 2018, added: "Winning two European Cleaning & Hygiene Awards is such a great achievement for everyone at Principle. To be recognised as leaders in our industry across Europe is the greatest reward. It motivates us to continue to invest in our people to deliver outstanding quality through innovation."

Another 2018 award winner was Dutch cleaning company CSU. Marketing and communications manager Erwin Vos told ECJ: "The European Cleaning & Hygiene Awards are a great way to share the best examples across the industry. Winning an award acknowledges that we are taking the right steps forward to always improve."
