Industry Announcement: 

The Canadian Sanitation Supply Association have reported that there are new developments regarding their industry trade show, Can Clean 2017. The executive board of the association has taken a very close look at the current activities to date and have confirmed that many of the elements of the show are struggling in terms of booth sales, sponsorships, innovation showcase area and the overall progress to date.

With the recent news of the CSSA membership vote that overwhelmingly supports a new direction to form ISSA Canada, the board feels that a successful Can Clean show is more critical than ever to our industry, it's members and the exhibiting trade show stake holders who invest heavily in the event. As a result, they have made the decision to postpone Can Clean until April of 2018.

A Can Clean committee will be formed to develop a robust strategy for the 2018 show which will include re-visiting such things as distribution being omitted as exhibitors from the show and a more defined educational program. They will also be able to draw on the vast experience of the ISSA who also believe that a Canadian trade show is of the utmost importance to our industry.
