Interclean Amsterdam's 4-day reunion last week created cause for celebration
Last Friday Interclean Amsterdam came to an end. With the sun was shining outside over the four days, the atmosphere inside was also sunny, with an international ensemble of 669 exhibitors and an impressive 25,886 visitors from 125 countries making the most of being able to meet each other in person again after a four-year break.
Apart from the focus on a personal reunion, there were plenty of opportunities to do business, experience product innovations and attend the extensive knowledge programme. Particular attention was paid to young talent, cleaning in the healthcare sector and updates for facilities managers.
Anyone who wishes to relive the experience can do so during the coming month by re-watching various keynote speaker sessions via Clean Connect. Looking ahead, Interclean Amsterdam 2024 is going to take place from 14th to 17th May 2024.
In the words of Robert Stelling (director Interclean Global Events): "We can look back on four very successful days, with a positive vibe in the exhibition halls. Everyone was extremely happy to finally meet each other again in person. We received many positive responses, from business contacts who were pleasantly surprised about the international nature of the exhibition, exhibitors who were able to make many more new contacts or close new orders and speakers who talked enthusiastically about the large audiences and their willingness to interact. This week has demonstrated that the power of personal interaction is extremely valuable.
"I am also proud of the Healthcare Cleaning Forum where we bridged the gap between infection prevention and cleaning. It was also fantastic to see how our sector is dealing with sustainability. On top of all that we learned that robotisation has now really taken off. We cannot wait until 2024!"
True to tradition the Amsterdam Innovation Award was presented when Interclean opened. This year the coveted trophy was awarded to the overall winner Essity's Tork Biobased Heavy-Duty Cleaning Cloth. Following the presentation, the amount raised by the participants in the Amsterdam Innovation Award of €12,675 was handed over to Amref Flying Doctors to support their projects in Ethiopia.
