The professional cleaning sector employs millions of people across Europe and plays a vital role in health, wellbeing, image and perception. However until now there has not been a pan-European awards programme recognising and rewarding standards of excellence in all areas, and at all levels.


Despite our industry often having a poor image in the eyes of the world at large, there is such outstanding work taking place in terms of employee policy, client relationships, sustainability, innovation and driving up standards.



The organisers behind the European Cleaning & Hygiene Awards have announced that this year’s event in Brussels will be postponed until 2022, due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. 


The fifth annual event, which celebrates the cleaning and hygiene sector across Europe, was due to take place on 4th November at Le Plaza Hotel in Brussels. However, as Covid-19 continues to affect people and businesses across the globe, the event has now been cancelled, returning to the same venue on 28th April 2022.

As the only pan-European publication serving the cleaning sector, European Cleaning Journal (ECJ) has as its main objective the promotion of the highest in professional standards and the recognition of our industry’s expertise in fulfilling such essential needs – in the pages of the magazine, throughout its website, and now by acknowledging and honouring the industry's phenomenal work at the European Cleaning & Hygiene Awards.
