Today, the much-anticipated Pulire exhibition & conference, Pulire 2015, opens its doors and the scurry of activity to get everything ready for the thousands of visitors expected to attend, will prove well worthwhile if previous events are anything to go by.
“This is so much more than just a trade show; it is a permanent laboratory of contacts, relationships and ideas for the development of the sector,” say the organisers, who go on to explain how they’ve developed the event.

What 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.

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
Pulire is a key partner for the hospitality (Ho.Re.Ca.) segment.
"Sparkling clean hotels, lodgings, wellness centres, spas and restaurants are the most effective calling card for any country," says Toni. “At Pulire, industry professionals and some of the largest and most important services and facilities management companies that provide outsourced services for the ho.re.ca segment can find a number of solutions to meet the quality standards of cleaning & hygiene increasingly important to the market.
"These include anything and everything from equipment such as multiservice carts - considered essential for correctly carrying out the job, to wet mops, brushes, and cloths for cleaning and sweeping, single brush machines, wet vacs, floor washing and drying tools, wash cloths and detergents specifically designed for types of floors, degreasers, lime scale removers and disinfectants...
