Speed & Medley Window Cleaning Contests

The Annual Speed & Medley Window Cleaning Contests are among the most anticipated and enjoyed events of the IWCA Annual Convention and Trade Show! Each year on the trade show floor attendees and well-wishers gather to support their colleagues as they compete. The afternoon on Day Two of the convention is set aside solely for the Trade Show and contests activities, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to watch your favorites compete!

The speed contest competitors always wow the crowds, and this year we’re pleased to announce that our speed contest is the Official Championship Event of the World Cup of Window Cleaning! Adding to the excitement, all three contests will be monitored for the Guinness Book of World Records, the medley contests for the first time. You’ll have a chance to break a world record, or set the standard to be broken!

Join us on the afternoon of Friday, January 24 on the trade show floor to watch these gladiators compete!
