After various discussions with the BACHE Executive team and our Conference and Events team we have decided that we have no option but to cancel our Conference this year at Manchester Metropolitan.
Further updates will be made available in due course.
Any front-line operatives, supervisors and managers responsible for the delivery of cleaning and associated services within the higher education sector can attend this conference.
Not sure if you can spare the time to attend our annual conference? Why should you and your colleagues take time out to attend the conference when you are so busy cleaning?
Well, here are four good reasons for coming along:
1. Network with colleagues who are interested in the same things as you. In an informal setting take the opportunity to meet with colleagues from across the sector and visit Keele University campus.
2. Acquire new skills and knowledge. We are hosting workshops that will help you stay informed and update and that will help you with improve on the basics of cleaning and also the future of cleaning.
3. The opportunity to participate in an interactive debate and Q&A session. Alongside other delegates share the challenges you are facing regarding the necessity to continue to improve and deliver cleaning services efficiently.
4. Meet with suppliers. - Engage with a number of selected companies providing a range of services and equipment to the cleaning industry, and thus, take the opportunity to have 1:1 conversations with these suppliers, and test out the latest equipment and products.
A testimonial from our 2018 Conference
Many have already commented on what was an entertaining and thought provoking event. As always the opportunity to meet colleagues, share experiences and debate the variety of challenges that we face is a welcome interlude from our day to day.
I always particularly enjoy meeting colleagues who are delivering the services on the ground. They always provide an interesting insight to the FM world within which they work and it is clear that there is a great deal of passion and commitment to providing the best services that they can. I know that those of us in management positions are incredibly grateful for their efforts and seeing a number (albeit small) rewarded for their efforts is equally gratifying.
Well done to all involved in putting on the event, I hope to see you next year.

A testimonial from our 2017 Conference
Please can I convey my sincere thanks to you and the BACHE executive on behalf of Sandra and myself for hosting us so fantastically during the BACHE conference and Gala Dinner this year.
Additionally I thought Keith and Queens did an amazing job, which I am sure at times due to the issues of the buses must have been an incredible challenge.
Sandra was extremely shocked, but highly delighted at being nominated and ultimately winning the Cleaning Supervisor of the Year Category.
Having not previously attended the conference personally, I found this a really worthwhile and enjoyable few days and would wholly support institutional attendance moving forward.
