CSSA AWARDS 2019
For the UK Cleaning Industry

The CSSA Awards in association with the Cleaning Show and supported by C & M Magazine is a joint initiative to acknowledge and reward excellence and effectiveness across many sectors of the UK Contract Cleaning Industry. These Awards have been developed to recognise everything that shines within the UK cleaning sector – great products, great systems, great contractors, and great individuals. The strength of the awards is that they are run for the industry, by the industry and voted for by industry experts.

Entrants do not need to be members of the CSSA or any other UK industry association – they simply need to be UK based and have an interest in the UK cleaning sector, and the desire to see its continued development and improvement.

If your entry is shortlisted, you will be informed by 14th February 2019 latest and receive an invitation to attend the CSSA Awards Ceremony & Luncheon on the 20th March 2019 at the Bridge Restaurant in ExCel in London, which is located next to the London Cleaning Show Hall which is taking place on 19 to 21st March 2018. Dedicated to showcasing and celebrating excellence in all the categories – allowing shortlisted and winning organisations to celebrate the hard work, dedication and success of their teams. Winners will receive a retainable award and Certificate and shortlisted entries will receive a Certificate.
