Carpex & WINDex 2008 - dates & smart new venue announced

Carpex & WINDex, the UK’s largest specialist exhibitions for professional carpet and window cleaners have announced dates for 2008. A new state of the art venue has been chosen and to top it all, exhibitor numbers look set to give the last events held in 2006, a real run for their money!

Taking place on 27th and 28th March next year, the shows, both organised by Quartz Publishing & Exhibitions Limited, (organisers of The Cleaning Show and publishers of C&M magazine) will be held for the first time at the multi-purpose Ricoh Arena in Coventry.  Since opening for business in the summer of 2005, the £113 million development has proved a huge success attracting more than 1 million visitors in the first 12 months.  
Calling all Window and Carpet Cleaners, Facility Managers, Education Establishments, Hospital/Health Authorities, Hoteliers, Buyers and Specifiers….. Make 27th and 28th March 2008 a date for your diary!

Carpet Cleaning and Window Cleaning; unless you’re directly involved in these two specialised areas you might just brush them off or not even give them a second thought.  The truth is that they not only provide a valuable source of employment, (the UK window cleaning industry alone employs approximately 56,000 people), but both play crucial roles in making a lasting positive impression across all industries.

New international competition to be launched

The Guinness Book of World Records and The Federation of Window Cleaners, (formerly known as The National Federation of Master Window & General Cleaners),  have announced the launch of ‘The Fastest Window Cleaner on the Planet’ competition. 

The competition will be held at the Windex exhibition on 27th-28th March 2008 in Coventry, England.  Competition organisers are calling record holders and challengers the world over to come forwards to compete for the title.  Could you be the lucky winner?

‘The Fastest Window Cleaner on the Planet’ competition, as its name suggests, is open to professional window cleaners around the globe.  Current national record holders will be admitted to the competition plus one challenger per country.  Record holders must verify that they have the fastest national time before being allowed entry to the competition.  It is free to enter the competition and the deadline for entries is 7th January 2008. 

Details of next year’s Windex / Carpex seminar programme have been announced by event organiser Quartz Publishing & Exhibitions. Developed for everyone involved in window cleaning, carpet cleaning and carpet restoration, the two day programme will be held on 27th-28th March at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

Dubbed as upbeat and informative, expert speakers promise sound information and industry advice to help delegates take their businesses to the next level. A popular bi-annual event in the window / carpet cleaning industry calendar, over half of all delegates at the last Windex / Carpex exhibitions in 2006 attended the seminar programme.  An impressive 92% of attendees said the sessions were informative.
