German cleaning show CMS attracts visitors from 65 countries

The German professional cleaning exhibition took place in Berlin last month, attracting over 16,500 visitors from 65 countries - say the organisers.

Taking place for the first time was the International CMS Congress, which had as its theme Sustainable Competitiveness in the Cleaning Sector. Among the speakers was Daniel Calleja Crespo of the European Commission, who told the gathered cleaning professionals: “You are the
most entrepreneurial and dynamic sector - a key sector whose needs must be taken into account by the European Commission.”

Chairman of the contract cleaning association BIV Dieter Kuhnert commented about the show: “We are more than satisfied with the way CMS went. It even exceeded our expectations. Visitor attendance grew significantly.”

And Markus Asch, chairman of the machinery manufacturers’ association VDMA echoed his sentiments. “The many positive reactions received from numerous trade visitors and exhibitors were confirmation that CMS is an outstanding platform for exchanging ideas and experiences.”

The next CMS will take place from September 22-25 2015.
