Trade associations statements
Immediately ahead of the fair the associations made the following statements regarding the situation in the industry and the value of this year's CMS:
Dieter Kuhnert, Head of the Board of the Federal Cleaning Trades Association, said: "With this year's fair the Federal Cleaning Trades Association is making every effort to continue the major successes of the last CMS, especially with regard to its growing international dimension. The congress on the subject of Sustainability, featuring prominent speakers from all over the world, including the EU Director General Daniel Calleja Crespo, illustrates the importance of the fair, of the entire industry and of the venue, Berlin, which is not confined within the borders of our own country.
"CMS provides the marketplace and the network for the largest national market and beyond. We, the Federal Cleaning Trades Association, with some 2,500 member businesses and around 520,000 employees, generated almost 87% of the industry's total turnover of 13.1 billion euros in 2012, and we enthusiastically support this CMS."
