Interclean Amsterdam to be rescheduled
FROM THE ORGANISERS... "In view of the recent developments as a result of the global spread of COVID-19 and, after consulting its exhibition committee, key stakeholders, exhibitors and visitors of the cleaning & hygiene industry, Interclean Amsterdam will be rescheduled. The new dates will be confirmed by 20th March.
The rapid spread of the Corona virus around the world has led to increased travel restrictions from authorities. These restrictions, as well as those imposed within companies, will result in materially reduced attendance of the show. To maintain the international reach and quality of the event, a new date will be set.
As the leading trade show in professional cleaning & hygiene, Interclean brings together parties from the entire industry as well as professionals from related industries. This includes professionals, associations and media from all over the world. To ensure this international character, the Interclean team, with the support of its key stakeholders, has now decided to postpone the event.
Through Interclean, RAI Amsterdam is strongly committed to playing its role as a meeting place for hygiene professionals and in building bridges for successful cooperation and expertise across the industry. This is even more important as organisations worldwide are looking to build consensus on how to tackle outbreaks like the Corona virus.
“By moving the exhibition to the Fall, we hope to offer our exhibitors the earliest possible time slot to present their innovations to a global audience and to initiate business," says Bas Dalm, Executive Vice President Exhibitions & Sales. "In view of the global economic challenges triggered by the Corona virus in the first half of the year, moving the show to the Fall offers great opportunities. Thus, the world's most important industrial trade fair can provide important impetus for the global economy at an early stage at a time when it much needed in view global health issues."
Ed… Such a huge decision and I don't envy the team at the RAI for having had to make it. So many people & businesses affected... but yes - I feel it was the right thing to do and I'm sure that this wonderful show will do the industry proud - as it always does - when the time is right...
