ISSA Appoints SinoExpo as Representatives in China

May 6, 2021 ISSA Appoints SinoExpo as Representatives in China

ISSA announced that they are partnering with SinoExpo to become the local representative for its Chinese operations. This expanded strategic relationship will increase the staff supporting local ISSA members and provide additional member value by tapping into SinoExpo’s cleaning industry expertise and network.

SinoExpo is the owner of the China Clean Expo (CCE), which recently hosted the first ISSA Pavilion during its April 2021 edition. Reaching an exhibition area of 37,000 sqm, this year’s CCE show was a four-day event gathering over 400 domestic and overseas exhibitors in the cleaning industry, and attracted 121,410 visits of professional buyers, with more than 50 onsite forums, competitions, live demo zones, and a gala dinner.

The partnership combines ISSA’s 10+ years of experience in educating and serving the Chinese cleaning industry, with China Clean Expo’s 21+ years of providing a national platform for cleaning professionals to meet, network and conduct business.

“ISSA has a strong history in China and we greatly value our Chinese members, which is why we wanted to find a way to expand our local support for them,” said John Barrett, ISSA Executive Director. “We also have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Sino-Expo over the years and look forward to what they can bring to the table for ISSA members.”

This expansion is the latest development in the global relationship between ISSA and Informa Markets, which SinoExpo represents in China. Through the new relationship, the Sino-Expo team will provide ISSA’s international education, accreditations, certifications, and access to ISSA’s entire international exhibition portfolio, which includes events in the US, Australia, Canada, Italy, Mexico, and Russia, plus educational events in India, Thailand, and Malaysia.

“ISSA Pavilion at this year’s CCE show was a successful debut and with this latest development, ISSA and Informa reach a new stage of strategic partnership. As the organizer of the CCE show, we are very happy to be ISSA’s Chinese Representatives. Supporting ISSA China members locally will be a very important focus for the SinoExpo team in the future,” said XQ Zhang, Managing Director of SinoExpo Informa Markets. “CCE has a 21-year history and accumulated rich resources and connections within the Chinese cleaning industry, which offer a big advantage for SinoExpo to help ISSA promote member benefits and services. We also look forward to introducing ISSA’s advanced concepts to the local market and providing CCE exhibitors and visitors with more high-quality solutions. By joining forces and sharing resources, I believe, together, we can promote better development of the cleaning industry worldwide.”

INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION EFFORTS

Remaining of the utmost priority, ISSA and Informa Markets continue to source new opportunities to provide member value and outstanding content by scaling exhibitions and experiences globally. The continued partnership will enable the worldwide cleaning industry to flourish and bring value to the global cleaning community as part of its mission to change the way the world views cleaning.

“We are honored to have SinoExpo as the exclusive sales agent representing the Chinese division of the ISSA global show portfolio and supporting ISSA members on the local level with world-class benefits,” said Lindsay Roberts, ISSA Group Director at Informa Markets. “This is one more way that ISSA, Informa Markets, and SinoExpo are collaborating in the unified mission of changing the way the world views cleaning.”

One example of the marriage between ISSA’s industry knowledge and Informa’s event expertise was the ISSA Biorisk Symposium Series hosted in late 2020 in China, India, and Thailand which brought together esteemed international experts on infection prevention with local industry and government leaders to discuss the ongoing needs to protect public health and return citizens safely to the built environment.
