CMS Berlin, the International Trade Fair for Cleaning Systems, Building Management and Services, opened its doors on Monday. It is expected to attract over 15,000 trade visitors from 60 countries over the week. The organisers tell us that all available space in the 24,700 square metre display area in Halls 1.2 to 4.2 and in the open-air grounds in front of the South Entrance to the Berlin Exhibition Grounds (Berlin ExpoCenter City) are occupied. The show doesn't finish until tomorrow evening, so if you can get here, do, as there's plenty to see and you won't be disappointed.
The latest machinery, equipment and cleaning products are on show in the action areas devoted to 'Glass & Facade Cleaning' and 'Aerial Work Platforms' and in the special 'Groundcare' show. Also at this event, the International CMS Congress is making its debut. Under the heading 'Sustainable Competitiveness in the Cleaning Industry' the question is being dealt with in a global context by leading representatives of the worldwide cleaning industry.
"CMS is an essential date in the cleaning industry's calendar," is how Ingrid Maass, Chief Operating Officer of Messe Berlin GmbH, describes the trade fair's strong position on the market. "Germany is the world's second largest market for commercial cleaning technology and chemicals," She argues. "Only the USA is larger. On its home market CMS provides a highly efficient marketing platform for presenting innovations, for leading decisionmakers to hold technical discussions and for establishing and maintaining business contacts. Another of the contributory factors to the standing of this event is the International CMS Congress, which is being introduced this year, and where discussions will focus on the subject of 'Sustainability'."
