The cleaning and restoration industry’s top business-to-business event is set for January 23-28, 2017. The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) Annual Meeting & Industry Convention will be in Orlando, Florida, and registration is now open.

In its 91st year, the event’s theme will be “Responding to Cleaning Needs for All Generations.”

“The 2016 ACI Convention drew nearly 1,000 business leaders from 180 different companies and 30 different countries. More than 100 companies are already registered for the 2017 Convention. Executives throughout the cleaning product supply know that the ACI Convention offers the world of cleaning in one convenient place,” says Ernie Rosenberg, ACI President & CEO.

Highlights of the week will include:

  • A keynote address from Jeff Skiles, Co-Pilot of U.S. Airways Flight 1549, “The Miracle on the Hudson.”
  • Beyond the Surface” – Consumers decode the nooks, crannies and crevices of cleaning.

For the first time, convention registrants will get to meet, greet and learn from brand consumers. ACI member company Takasago will host a panel of forward-thinking consumers, spanning all ages, lifestyles and cleaning habits. These consumers will share their thoughts, opinions and suggestions concerning how they approach the task and the products/brands that are part of their experience.

The convention will also feature policy and international issue briefings, meetings of ACI’s expert standing committees and a variety of networking events throughout the week.
