ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America set to 'unleash potential'

The ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America exhibition and ISSA Convention take place in Chicago from October 25-28 with the theme 'Unleashing the Industry's Potential'.

The event comes with a completely revamped educational schedule, featuring more than 60 seminars, hands-on training workshops, and networking events held over four days. The organisers say attendees will havemore content and format options than ever, allowing for smaller, intimate experiences. In addition to traditional seminar settings, this year's schedule includes:

• Deeper dives: In-depth seminars on hot topics, such as infection control

• Flash sessions: Two, 15-minute sessions in a 30-minute block of concentrated information, including leadership, management and recruitment tips

• Ask the experts: Panel discussions where attendees design the content based on their burning issues

• Workshops: Half- and full-day hands-on opportunities to learn skills, such as floor and restroom care, customer service, supervisor, and auditing, many of which include certification.

Also new, Tuesday's line-up of educational sessions includes a featured speaker, Ryan Estis, a sales professional, leader and consultant who will present Managing Breakthrough Performance in the New Economy, to provide practical insights into the attributes of an effective leader and manager.

There will also be three keynote speakers:

• Rob O'Neill, former US Navy SEAL and military legend, Wednesday, October 26, 8:00 am

• Dennis Miller, comedian and political commentator, Thursday, October 27, 8:00 am

• Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder and Silicon Valley icon, Friday, October 28, 1:00 pm.

The exhibition will feature over 700 exhibitors from around the world, with the ISSA Innovation Showcase once again rewarding the highest standards of innovation. Visitors can vote for their favourite to win the Visitors' Choice Award, with online category voting opening on August 1.
