CARPEX / WINDEX 2012 have been cancelled.

Owing to the greatly enhanced marketing opportunity offered by the Cleaning Show 2013, which is co-locating with the IMHX International Materials Handling Show, several traditional Carpex/Windex exhibitors have elected to use a greater percentage and in some cases all of their marketing budget for this event.

Visitor numbers at the Cleaning Show 2013 are expected to significantly increase thanks to the co-location with IMHX, making this an event that no serious supplier to the cleaning and allied markets can afford to miss.

Few companies wish to attend both Carpex/Windex and the Cleaning Show 2013, and as a consequence Carpex/Windex 2012 has been cancelled.

The next Carpex/Windex exhibition will therefore take place in 2014.

Show Quotes

This was an excellent show with a continual flow of visitors to our stand. It was also good to see so many FWC members, and I felt there was a genuine interest in the association’s activities.

As well as recruiting 10 new members, a further 180 application packs taken over the two days.  The seminar programme proved positive for many visitors and extremely valuable for the FWC in terms of recruitment.”

Springs was very pleased to have taken a stand at the show for the first time, exhibiting a range of new Streamline equipment with excellent show offers. This was complemented by the introduction of the new WfP training package, resulting in many enquiries about the products and services available.

We were very pleased with the response at Windex and were able to advise many window cleaners on options available. We look forward to an even larger presence at Windex 2012!"

Andy Crockford, MD of Springs


Alexander Swan Insurance Services attracted lots of attention by bringing along one of its courtesy vans, complete with the Ionic Thermopure system. Many of the window cleaners were impressed with the idea of a courtesy van complete with a water fed pole system in the event of a claim.

It was apparent that many of the window cleaners were unsure if they had the correct cover for their vans and WFP systems. They had also not considered that the policy they have at the moment would not give them a courtesy van complete with a WFP system in the event of a claim.”

Windex exceeded all our expectations this time round - not only us at Contico but also our guests who had especially flown from Pulex, Italy for the two day event. The show provided an excellent launch pad to promote the new Pulex ‘Technolite’ squeegee.

We succeeded in our objective of reaching the professional window cleaner quickly and effectively, demonstrating and proving without question the benefits and advantages in using the new product. The ‘buy one get one free’ offer certainly got it started, and the Contico stand never stopped from beginning to end…”

Windex 2010 was very successful for Ionic Systems. Our new Swift poles proved very popular, and the ability to demonstrate them to 65 feet was crucial - this is one of the reasons why we always like exhibiting at this venue.

For Ionic Systems, the cherry on the cake was winning the Innovation Award for the Swift pole, which justified the considerable effort and research that went into this new product. We were also encouraged by the continuing interest in reach & wash systems, which visitors immediately recognised as the safest and highest quality system available.”

Windex 2010 was a great success for Ettore. The show was really well attended and there was a real positive atmosphere which was shared by visitors and exhibitors alike. We added to our Ettore Members Club, signing up over 60 new members over the two-day event, which we were really pleased with. 

Windex 2010 was a great platform to showcase our Ettore product range to the professional market and to meet a vast number of customers, both new and existing, under one roof.”
