Digitisation

* Toni.jpgWhat makes Pulire unique is the high digitisation of the event. This concept began in 2013 and this year the app has been enhanced. Now called 2.1, it enables visitors to plan their visit to the exhibition, due to a system of match-making that allows them to book appointments with exhibitors. All information about the exhibitors is be available on smartphones and tablets, while exhibitors can receive real-time information about visitors, their origin, their role etc.

“This represents a significant advantage for exhibitors,” says Toni D'Andrea, CEO of Afidamp Servizi. “If for example an exhibitor is looking for a distributor from Qatar, the app can inform the exhibitor if the distributor he is looking for is at the fair.

Pulire Clean

The 2015 edition of Pulire is also growing thanks to a new element: the Pulire Clean project, which will address the needs of the fabric care and laundry equipment market.

Pavilion 1 will be entirely dedicated to this market segment, bringing the equipment and product manufacturers from this sector into the professional cleaning industry fold with which it holds much synergy, yet with its own immediately recognisable and distinctive space.

For more than 30 years, Pulire has been the largest Italian professional cleaning exhibition and the second largest in Europe. As such it will offer those who work in fabric laundering and care a range of opportunities to expand their market and find new commercial partners.





Pulire Outdoor

“While throughout its 30 years Pulire has always been geared up to providing solutions for indoor cleaning tasks, since last edition, held in 2013, Pulire has also developed the brand ‘Pulire Outdoor’, dedicated to sweeping and urban decor and therefore pertinent to manufacturers of road sweepers and cleaning machines for road maintenance.”

The theme of this year's Pulire Outdoor will be 'Clean city for Quality of life'. The opening conference is scheduled to take place today at 14:00 hours, with a great panel of speakers: the mayors of Curitiba in Brazil, Singapore and Copenhagen, as well as mayors of important Italian cities, for a discussion on the relationship between the cleanliness of the city and the satisfaction index of its citizens, with international best
