2019 BICSc Annual Award winners revealed

The 2019 BICSc Annual Awards showcase and exhibition celebrates outstanding industry excellence

The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) has announced the winners of one of the industry’s most prestigious events, which took place on Thursday 26 September at Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa, Northamptonshire.

The showcase and exhibition commenced in the morning with a lighter and brighter approach, including a series of insightful keynotes, while members of Team BICSc delivered ‘Great at 58’, a look back through the decades of the Institute.

Guests then had time to enjoy the surroundings of the hotel, before 200 guests later entered the Brooklands Suite for the glittering Awards ceremony which was hosted by special guest, award-winning journalist and writer, Louise Hulland.

The Judging Panel said: “This year we received the largest number of entries to date. The commitment to BICSc standards continues to overwhelm us year on year. What’s even more important than the qualities of the finalists and winners, are the examples they set for others. By demonstrating the benefits and practicalities of BICSc standards and training, these organisations and individuals simply inspire others to aim higher within their own companies, driving improvement throughout the industry.”
