San Francisco, USA - August 4, 2011: Apple Computers logo sits in brushed metal facade of a store in Union Square. Apple's control over branding and the consumer experience is legendary, and award-winning architecture and iconic design elements of the company's flagship retail locations have played no small part in the brand's resurgent popularity.

Northbrook, IL — ISSA, the worldwide cleaning association, has announced that former U.S. Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill, comedian Dennis Miller and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will be the ISSA keynote speakers for 2016 ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America. The event will be held October 25-28 in Chicago.
