New show Hygienalia+Pulire takes place in Valencia16th of February 2012
The first edition of the Hygienalia+Pulire professional cleaning exhibition for Spain took place in Valencia earlier this month, attracting almost 4,000 visitors.
Organised by Reed Exhibitions Iberia in conjunction with Afidamp Servizi, which is responsible for the Pulire show in Italy, the event was visited by distributors, contract cleaning firms and end users from hotels, hospitals, supermarkets, etc. Just under 140 exhibitors participated - 30 per cent of them from abroad.
Deputy director of Reed Exhibitions Iberia Alberto Alonso highlighted the quality of visitors and emphasised that despite today's economic climate, "everyone has considered the possibility of travelling and coming to Valencia to see the varied and absolutely representative supply from the professional cleaning and hygiene sector on show here".
Afidamp's Toni D'Andrea added: "Hygienalia+Pulire has taken place in a extremely difficult period for the domestic professional cleaning market - a sector that registered in 2011 a 13 per cent decrease in sales against 2010 and a progressive contraction that has seen a drop in sales of 32 per cent since 2007."
