Despite the truly traditional Manchester weather, the annual FM North Summer Party was another sold out event attended by over 150 industry leaders and professionals within the cleaning, facilities management and construction sectors from across the UK. Co-founder Daniel Cross of Tennant UK said “It’s amazing to see how popular and successful FM North has become, and we keep attracting new members every month. The annual Summer Party has become a fixed date in peoples diaries, and we are proud of the connections and business opportunities we are helping people make in a setting that doesn’t feel like its business.” The event was generously sponsored by the Cleaning and Support Services Association, Darwin Clayton Insurance, Bird and Pest Worx, Peartree Cleaning Services, Tennant UK, and CSS Facilities.
