Welcome Back, ISSA Show North America 2021
Categories: ISSABy Lindsay Roberts | August 5, 2021 << Back to Articles
No doubt, as we emerge from the storm, there is a new elevated sense of importance around cleaning and its effects on human health and wellness. We are excited to announce that ISSA Show North America 2021 will be returning to Las Vegas, November 15—18, 2021, in the brand-new West Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The West Hall will allow us a fresh, clean, and modern space as we return to an in-person event for the first time in two years. We hope the space mirrors a sense of a renewed restart for our industry after a tumultuous 18 months.
As Las Vegas continues to ease restrictions, we are looking forward to a very normal and safe event, with all the elements our customers have come to expect at an in-person event inclusive of networking events, receptions, and parties. In addition, the Las Vegas Convention Center is a GBAC (Global Biorisk Advisory Council™) STAR™ accredited facility, and our official cleaning provider, United Services, is a GBAC STAR accredited service contractor. Our customer’s safety is our priority.

Snapshot of a Week at ISSA Show
For many, ISSA Show North America may be the first large-scale face-to-face event in two years, and we felt it was critical to provide you with as many opportunities to engage as possible over the week.
After Monday’s full day of education and networking, Tuesday will start with Attendee Orientation, followed by our Opening Spotlight speaker. Tuesday evening will feature the ISSA Hygieia Network Awards Reception and the ARCSI Roundtable Discussions and Networking event. Both are available to all show attendees.
We are working closely with ISSA Canada and monitoring travel restrictions for our Canadian attendees. We are hopeful that we’ll be able to host the Tuesday Canada Night Social event on the beautiful new outdoor terrace at the convention center.
Wednesday will begin with an 8:00 a.m. morning Education session timeslot, and then all attendees will come together for the Wednesday Spotlight Power Panel.
Thursday will open with a 9:00 a.m. Education session timeslot. ISSA will host its annual General Business Meeting Breakfast.
We’ll officially wrap the show with our Innovation Program Awards announcement. This program has continued to be the driving force behind preparing the global cleaning community for the future of cleaning. As the only comprehensive platform for the cleaning industry, companies can take the stage by showcasing their products and educating industry professionals on new solutions that address key challenges throughout the industry.
Join us for the ceremony of the ISSA Innovation Awards announcement and champagne toast, followed by a happy hour as the culmination of a great show!
