The Laundry & Dry Cleaning Awards 2017

The Laundry & Dry Cleaning Awards (LADAS) 2017

The Laundry & Dry Cleaning Awards 2017 (LADAs), run by Laundry & Cleaning Today, have taken place on the 2nd of November at Mercedes-Benz World, Surrey. The LADAs were introduced to recognize exceptional individuals, companies and products in the laundry and dry cleaning industry – to celebrate skills, and identify role models. Already in its third year, the event has grown significantly hosting 245 guests. It has thus become a major highlight in the industry calendar, recognizing those in the industry that really do make a difference. The jury of experts made the final selection prior to the presentation ceremony and all winners were announced and presented with their accolade and certificate.
