ISSA/Interclean Amsterdam 2016 - a resounding success
The 2016 edition of ISSA/Interclean Amsterdam has concluded four busy days marked by high temperatures and many happy people. Visitors came from across the globe to see new technologies and find out what is new and upcoming in the industry.
The robot arena and information-packed seminars at the InnovationLAB were two features not to be missed, while the sunny weather made the Outdoor Demo Show more popular than ever.
Once inside, the visitors enjoyed countless activities on exhibitor stands: a breakdance performance, caricature cartoonist, a Marilyn Monroe stand-in and even a virtual reality demonstration boosting the experience.
More visitors spent three days on the show floor, resulting in a vibrant exhibition and the busiest days ever.
"The success of ISSA/Interclean Amsterdam was the great atmosphere throughout the RAI complex," says Rob den Hertog, manager ISSA/ Interclean at RAI Amsterdam.
"From the Award Ceremony on the opening day of the show to the many business contacts on the exhibition floor, from the high degree of knowledge exchange at the complementary ISSA seminar programme and the innovations in the InnovationLAB to the networking fun at the various social gatherings, ISSA/ Interclean was the place to be. Now the work starts for ISSA/ Interclean Amsterdam 2018, we look forward to it!"

Over four days a total of 30,289 professionals from 134 countries visited the show, an increase of 3% compared to 2014. The international share of attendees also keeps growing. This time 76% of the visitors came from outside the Netherlands. The largest growth came from Oceania, Western Africa and Southeast Asia.
"A vast exhibition showcasing the very best the industry has to offer...an enjoyable, worthwhile and informative few days," said T. Brooke, head of hotel services, Bupa UK, while Andrés Carmona, gerente general, GrupoInter Ltda, said: "ISSA/ Interclean Amsterdam is a place where you are inspired!" Omer Erdem, business development, Eczacibasi Profesyonel, said: "This fair is the one and only, the professionals of this industry, can find whatever you need".
One of the fastest growing economies in the world, Turkey will be host to the second edition of ISSA/Interclean Istanbul from 7th - 9th September 2016. Bridging East and West, Istanbul is the perfect location to provide insight in this emerging market, which is expected to be the second fastest growing market in the world by 2020.
