At the ISSA show North America, thousands of cleaning professionals met Neo, the floor scrubbing robot

The ISSA Show North America is a wrap! The Avidbots crew, including co-founders Faizan Sheikh and Pablo Molina, spent last week in Las Vegas meeting with hundreds of potential customers, demonstrating Neo, the floor scrubbing robot, to thousands of event visitors and showing off our new brand! Over 16,000 cleaning industry professionals from 70 countries attended the ISSA Show and many demonstrated great interest in Neo, with the number of visitors to our booth doubling over last year.

Since Neo is the only true fully autonomous floor scrubbing robot on the market, and already cleaning commercial spaces in over 15 countries, many visitors had heard about our robot and wanted to learn how it could improve efficiency, safety and ROI at their companies. Crowds formed each time we did a live, remote demo of Neo avoiding obstacles at our corporate headquarters. Visitors were particularly excited about Neo’s state-of-the-art Command Center web app, which allows maintenance managers to see real-time feeds of Neo in action, quickly create cleaning routes, and get detailed reports on cleaning outcomes, efficiency and ROI.

Many show visitors took part in the Avidbots Partner Passport Program, visiting the booths of Avidbots manufacturing partners such as 3M, Midwest Rubber, Malish, Ametek and Global Industrial to learn more about the quality parts that make Neo the most advanced cleaning robot on the market. Participants earned a passport sticker for each visit and then entered for a chance to win a Lego Technic™ Build Your Own Robot 4×4 Kit. With the holidays just around the corner, it was the perfect gift and a coveted prize!

The ISSA Show was a great success. The Avidbots team was excited to meet such a wide array of cleaning professionals from facilities management companies and janitorial service providers, to building owners and logistics operators. As we head into 2020, Avidbots will continue to accelerate its global lead in the automated floor scrubbing robot sector, introducing new Neo functionality and features, entering new worldwide markets, and expanding our team to build the best robotics technology on the market.
