Venue
Slaley Hall

Hexham
7th – 9th June 2017

The 2017 event promises to deliver two extremely valuable and informative days along with great networking opportunities with colleagues in our industry.

As an association we pride ourselves on sharing best practice and knowledge allowing us to develop and grow stronger. The 2017 forum, Learning Together Growing Strong will take on a fresh format providing delegates with more workshop sessions and face to face time with our exhibitors.

Running alongside the forum will be our dedicated exhibition showcasing products and services from over 40 leading healthcare cleaning suppliers.

If you are a cleaning professional or a supplier to the industry who is looking to stay ahead of the game then this is the event for you!

With a range of fantastic activities, both on-site and in the surrounding countryside, you can be sure to find lots of fun things to see and do nearby that will entertain all.
