African show to highlight workplace hygiene solutions
The one international trade exhibition in Africa for all sectors of the professional cleaning industry, CleantexPulire, is set to take place in Johannesburg South Africa from 28th - 30th July 2015.
Next year's event will mark the 10th edition of this exhibition, established in 1998 to build a platform for African cleaning professionals to congregate, view the latest product innovations, network and create new business opportunities.
The South African economy is the second largest on the African continent and is ranked as an upper-middle income economy by the World Bank. Since 1996, South Africa's Gross Domestic Product almost tripled to US$400 billion. South Africa is a member of BRICS, an association of five major emerging economies including Brazil, Russia, India and China and is widely regarding as the gateway to trade in Africa.
CleantexPulire is a member of the International Pulire cleaning show network and this strategic alliance contributed to increased international participation at the 2013 event, with exhibitors from Austria, Germany, Italy, USA and the UK, who introduced their products and equipment to the African market for the first time.
Commenting on another show trend, exhibition director Johann van Vuuren says: "The 2013 attendance figures indicated a marked increase in the number of new and emerging professional contract cleaning contractors, not only within South Africa but also those who come from other African countries in order to source the latest technology for their cleaning operations. The increase in cleaning contractors points towards a vibrant and growing industry."
An increasing demand in the workplace to meet international standards of cleanliness and hygiene, linked with the constant need to upgrade cleaning systems across multiple industries, will continue to attract visitors to this showcase, specifically organised to underscore workplace hygiene solutions.
Industry seminars and Association meetings will run concurrent with CleantexPulire 2015 over the three days to enhance knowledge and skills transfer.
