This one-day boutique event and cleaning expo was jam-packed with presentations and workshops focusing on a variety of trending topics – including infection control, healthcare cleaning, food safety, workplace efficiencies, integrated services and delivering new cleaning outcomes.

What did exhibitors have to say about 2014?
“AUSCLEAN 2014 at the MCG was a great expo. For a one day event it was a great turn out and result. Our day was a busy one with a good cross section of visitors and numbers and well represented by the cleaning industry supporting the event. Congratulations to the Interpoint team for a very well run and promoted one day AUSCLEAN event” – Frank Cupido, managing director of Hako Australia (2014 PLATINUM SPONSOR)
“The effectiveness of the one day show was immense. The flow of people was consistent throughout the day, devoid of the usual ‘lulls’ associated with longer shows. Additionally the fact that it was exclusively a cleaning industry trade show ensured that the quality of the attendees were those who only engage the cleaning industry. This made it highly beneficial from an exhibitor perspective. 10/10 to Intermedia for all the promoting that they did to generate the awareness and make it the success it was – this certainly helped drive up the numbers of attendees” – Garth Michalson, chief executive officer of Cleanstar (2014 GOLD SPONSOR)
“ISS were happy to support AUSCLEAN this year, at the prestigious MCG venue. We clean the MCG and they are one of our major customers, so it was a great opportunity to showcase what we do, especially during the tour of the ground. We were also delighted to see so many visitors from the adjoining IHHC conference. The partnership with AUSCLEAN meant that we met a number of prospective health customers from interstate who may not normally have attended” – Debbie Robbins, marketing manager ISS Facility Services Australia (2014 SILVER SPONSOR)
“On behalf of Pacvac I would like to thank Intermedia for organising AUSCLEAN in Melbourne, which proved to be a great success for Pacvac. We really felt that this was the ‘right event’ for Pacvac to exhibit at and we talked with many of the industry’s leading market professionals who showed great interest in our latest product, the Thrift, and also our Superpro battery700 vacuum. Intermedia’s coordination of such an event is always of the highest standard and we look forward to exhibiting at the next AUSCLEAN” – Donna White, managing director of Pacvac.
