Preview Week is a brand-new offering from ISSA, and it’s a great way to get a look at what kind of content will be on display at the actual event. ISSA’s Preview Week has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you missed it. If you are attending the show, you have access to all the webinars.

Webinars like Cleaning & Disinfecting Basics or JanSan 2021: The Voices of the Industry will explore topics like changed processes due to Covid, and the ways the industry has changed permanently in the last few years. You won’t want to miss out!

Everyone in the JanSan industry has felt increasing pressure to prove their worth to building patrons, to clients, and to higher ups at our organization. There is an interest in being able to actively demonstrate how clean facilities are. Certifications can help inspire confidence that standards are high.

At ISSA, you have the chance to join interactive workshops that can help you take your own organization to the next level. Many of the workshops include the option to earn a new certification like the Master Environmental Services Executive, Certified Workloading Specialist and ARCSI House Cleaning Technician Training courses.

The interactive workshops and certifications do come with an additional cost, so choose wisely.

Visit Virtual Booths Before the Show

Once you arrive in Las Vegas, you will probably be busy until you leave. Lots of things to learn, people to see, products to purchase! But there are plenty of ways to participate in the show before you even leave home. Some exhibitors will have set up virtual booths before they set up their physical booths in the convention center.

Virtual booths will contain information about the company and the product they offer. You can get an early idea about what you might want to learn more about. To see what a virtual booth looks like, check out CleanTelligent Software’s here!

Use the MyShow Planner

The first half of the ISSA show is dedicated to seminars, certifications and educational classes. The second half is where the fun really begins. But it’s where the craziness can start as well!

With over 500 exhibitors on the show floor, use your MyShow Planner to keep yourself focused. When scanning through the library of virtual booths, click the orange Add To My Show Planner on any booths you want to see in person at the convention.
