In response to exhibitor and attendee input, the International Sanitary Supply Association, Inc. (ISSA) has announced it will make important changes to the format of ISSA's Annual Convention.

At a recent meeting, the board reviewed the attendance and the participant surveys from the first ISSA/Interclean event held in Chicago in 1999 and from the traditional ISSA Convention held in Atlanta last year. The following determinations were made:

  • A consistent format each year is preferable.

  • The ISSA Convention needs to maintain a venue for distributors to meet in an affordable and efficient way with multiple suppliers.

  • Distributors preferred that time be set aside for seminars focused specifically on distributor issues and where they might take advantage of networking with other distributors without end users present.

  • An "open," industry-wide format provides distributors the opportunity to invite customers and to solidify the added value that a distributor provides for its customers and suppliers.

As a result of these evaluations, the board has changed the show's format beginning 2002 in Las Vegas, and in each year thereafter, as follows:

  • The show name will be ISSA/Interclean every year.

  • The format and the dates for 2002 are as follows:

  • October 15: The traditional seminar format will be open to distributors and manufacturers only.

  • October 16: The tradeshow floor will be open only to distributors. A seminar day will be scheduled on that Wednesday for end users. Wednesday morning's traditional keynote event will be open to all attendees.

  • October 17-18: The show will be open to all cleaning professionals.
