WFBSC announces first Berlin meeting for CMS 2017, as Thomas Dietrich takes over presidency
For the first time, the World Federation of Building Service Contractors will be gathering cleaning industry decision-makers from around the world for a meeting in Berlin.
From 18th to 20th September 2017, the Federation will be holding its congress alongside the international cleaning trade fair CMS Berlin 2017 - Cleaning.Management.Services in the German capital. The headline topic of the international conference is 'Cleaning in the digital world - processes, people, technology.'
As of today, Thomas Dietrich, national guild master of the National Guild Association of the Building Cleaning Trade (BIV), is the chair and president of the world federation. Today, the sitting president Takao Ichinohe from Japan handed over the helm at the International Forum Tokyo, where the 21st WFBSC congress is currently taking place.
"Globalisation and digitalisation will become increasingly important in our sector, particularly where new processes and the organisation of our services are concerned," said Thomas. "For us as hosts of the World Congress, the focus is on networking and exchanging views - and how, with the help of outstanding exhibitors at CMS, we as a service industry can meet future challenges."
Dr. Christian Göke, CEO, Messe Berlin GmbH, said: "The 22nd WFBSC congress in 2017 will provide a decisive boost for CMS Berlin. This international event will gather additional numbers of outstanding decision-makers from around the world at the Berlin cleaning trade fair. It is another successful step in the direction of our goal, which is to attract even greater international participation in CMS Berlin."
CMS Berlin, will be taking place from 19th to 22nd September 2017. At CMS 2015, on an indoor and outdoor display area covering 24,500sq.m, 377 exhibitors from 22 countries provided a comprehensive overview of their products, systems and work methods which represented the market's entire range of cleaning systems and cleaning agents. These included more than 70 exhibits making their first appearance at a trade fair or on the European or world stage.
