All of us have heard the commercial that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Well, in a few weeks we'll be able to dispel that myth and take home ideas from what happens in Vegas. Ideas that absolutely should not stay in Vegas.

During the week of September 11-15, the ISSA/INTERCLEAN convention AND BSCAI CONTRACTING SUCCESS CONFERENCE will be held in Vegas and with it comes the opportunity to learn an enormous amount that we can take home and implement in our businesses. 

The ISSA/INTERCLEAN show brings together about 16,000 industry professionals to see what's new (and old) in the cleaning and related services industry while visiting with professionals at approximately 700 booths from the United States and many foreign countries. The trade show is held on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, September 12-14. Along with the show there are planned many learning sessions to gain even more knowledge in the industry that we have chosen as our profession.

Later in the week BSCAI hosts their Contracting Success Conference on the 13th through the 15th at both the Convention center and the Bellagio hotel. Again, gaining education is the focus of these 3 days. You will note also that it has been renamed the Contracting Success Conference in an effort to more clearly identify the purpose of the event and the association.

In addition to the educational sessions being held, on Thursday and Friday, the 14th and 15th, BSCAI will also have about 35 vendors hosting table top displays inviting a more personal one on one opportunity to discuss your needs and how the vendors can help you with those needs. 

We are happy to report that Consultants In Cleaning, LLC will be one of those vendors at the Bellagio. We are really excited to have the opportunity to demonstrate our COMPLETELY NEW 6 DVD BOX SET, BSC sales training sessions hosted by Dick Ollek, CBSE, RGC, a former BSC with nearly 55 years in the industry. These BSC industry specific DVD's are each about an hour long and cover the topics of determining who your prospects should be to getting in the door to preparing the proposal and service agreement to making the presentation and closing the sale. Dick will also teach you what to say when the prospect says no. 

In addition, our NEW 12 SESSION, 6 DVD BOX SET, industry specific training sessions entitled "The BSC's Guide to Effective Supervision" will be on display for your review. Providing your supervisors this training will give you the confidence that you can handle the new business your sales people will bring on after completing their training.

You can get a glance at the topics of both these new offerings by going to our web site at

So...think about it, 3 days of trade show excitement with 700 booths AND a wealth of educational sessions at the convention center and 3 days of BSC specific contracting success sessions presented by BSCAI. What happens the week of September 11-15 should NOT stay in Vegas. You can learn more about both of these events by going to the following web sites,

Look forward to seeing you there.
