ISSA and Informa Markets solidify strategic partnership serving the Indian global cleaning and facility management industry through the launch of the ISSA Conference India scheduled for October 21- 22, 2021 at the Westin Mumbai Garden City in Mumbai, India. “ISSA is very happy to further expand our strong global partnership with Informa Markets by offering the ISSA India Conference,” said Dianna Steinbach, ISSA Vice President of International Services. “This collaboration enables ISSA to bring more international insights and education at a local level, supporting the Indian cleaning industry’s growing professionalism, as well as helping local businesses contribute to improved public hygiene and societal advancements.”

By joining forces and sharing resources, I believe together we can promote better development of the cleaning industry. The ISSA Conference is as timely as it is relevant considering the see-saw battle we are engaged with at the moment with the pandemic. The event will bring together professionals and companies, sensitizing them on the pertinent issues in dealing with pandemics and redefining the global cleaning community with the single mission of changing the way the world views cleaning. The symposium is designed to provide the commercial, institutional, and industrial stakeholders with lessons learned and best practices in disaster management, readiness and resiliency, as well as leadership in times of crisis.”
