IFMA, ISSA look forward to continuing partnership following successful Canada event

July 31, 2019

Joining ISSA, the worldwide cleaning association, and MediaEdge Communications to support the debut of ISSA Show Canada this past June, IFMA anticipates co-hosting the trade show and conference in Canada again next year.

Held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, ISSA Show Canada welcomed more than 1,000 guests on the trade show floor and offered a variety of speakers and educational sessions covering topics such as infection control, culture change and leadership, business growth and evolution, and green building and sustainable practices.

“IFMA appreciates the importance of interorganizational cooperation to meet the increasing challenges of the smart building revolution,” said John Carrillo, CFM, IFMA Fellow, Chair of IFMA’s Global Board of Directors. “It takes a team of uniquely skilled individuals to provide seamless support of the entire built environment landscape. We’re excited to work with ISSA again to bring these skilled individuals together for the benefit of cleaner, greener and more energy-efficient facilities.”

Supporting IFMA’s critical goal of unifying the global built environment industry and furthering ISSA’s commitment to promote cleaning as an investment in human health, the environment and an improved bottom line, ISSA Show Canada is an extension of the associations’ shared mandates for strategic growth.

“By partnering with the REMI Network and IFMA, we have taken this trade event to the next level and are making great strides in our efforts of uniting the industry,” said ISSA Canada Executive Director Mike Nosko. “We look forward to organizing an even bigger and better trade event in 2020.”
