Beyond business: a festival of networking, social interaction and leisure opportunities - Interclean Amsterdam 2024!

* Interclean-Amsterdam-2024.jpgLast Friday, Interclean Amsterdam closed its doors after a four-day business and networking extravaganza that was bigger and better than ever before.

Visitors were treated to a whole new Interclean experience, where forging global connections, experiencing the newest innovations and discovering the latest trends were the centrepiece of the biggest Interclean Amsterdam to date.

In addition to an extensive range of knowledge sessions, Interclean offered a vibrant networking programme including the daily Interclean Social Club with live entertainment and Feel Good Friday where referee Bjorn Kuipers and the biggest Friday afternoon drink ensured a superb finish. Overall, an international crowd of 875 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors from 143 countries converged on RAI Amsterdam.

Robert Stelling (director Interclean) is naturally delighted with the turnout and results:

"We're looking back at an exciting four days," he enthuses. "One of Interclean's main objectives is to enable the cleaning & hygiene industry to grow and thrive, by creating the right environment and atmosphere. I think we really succeeded in this, looking at the positive atmosphere in the halls, at all the networking events but most of all the busy stands where many new contacts were made, and orders closed. We once again saw the positive impact of the personal connection!

"I am also proud that we hosted the Global Executive Summit of the World Federation of Building Service Contractors, as well as the Global Association Meeting - a gathering of all the international cleaning & hygiene Associations from across the world. Amsterdam really was the global capital of cleaning last week!"

On Thursday, the third edition of the Healthcare Cleaning Forum was held. This unique one-day conference was organised by Interclean in close cooperation with CleanHospitals, focussing on the importance of environmental hygiene in the fight against infections in hospitals and other care institutions. Here healthcare experts, including infection prevention specialists and facilities managers, cleaning experts and industry members joined to discuss new (scientific) insights, innovative technology and groundbreaking procedures.

The programme, with breakout sessions and top keynote speakers Prof. Didier Pittet, Clare Nash, Prof. Martin Kiernan, Prof. Brett Mitchell, Edmée Bowles and Dr Alexandra Peters, was a huge success. This year's edition was attended by an international gathering of healthcare professionals from 143 countries.

True to tradition, with the opening of Interclean, the Amsterdam Innovation Awards winners were announced - for details visit:
