Dieter Kuhnert, head of the boardof BIV said at the opening: "“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."
“CMS is the most important trade fair for the cleaning sector in Europe in 2013," said Markus Asch, chairman of VDMA. "The fair is very effective at linking together all those involved in the subject of cleaning. Such interconnection and communication is vital for the long- term success of the entire market."
And the IHO's Frank Vancraeyveld added: "We need a trade show such as CMS as a means of demonstrating the mood in the industry and the state of the economy, and also as a catalyst, as a trendsetter, and to define the important themes of the moment."
