Feel-good Interclean Amsterdam attracts 30,000 visitors

Interclean Amsterdam, Europe's biggest professional cleaning exhibition, finished last Friday after four days of business, networking and innovation. And the general mood was highly positive, as exhibitors and visitors alike reported a successful and stimulating show.

In total 30,000 visitors from 143 countries visited RAI Amsterdam - there were 875 exhibitors. Director of Interclean Robert Stelling is delighted with the results. "We're looking back at an exciting four days. One of Interclean's main objectives is to enable the cleaning and hygiene industry to grow and thrive, by creating the right environment and atmosphere to do business in.

"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."

Stelling continued: "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 and hygiene associations from across the world. Amsterdam really was the global capital of cleaning last week!"

During the opening ceremony on the first morning, as is customary, the winners of the Amsterdam Innovation Award were announced. The top prize this year was awarded to Diversey - A Solenis Company for its LESSEAU NO-Touch Bar Soap Dispenser & Refills.

Healthcare Cleaning Forum

Interclean was also the venue for the third Healthcare Cleaning Forum (HCF), a one-day conference organised in cooperation with CleanHospitals. The programme focused on the importance of environmental hygiene in the fight against infections in hospitals and other care institutions. Healthcare experts - including infection prevention specialists and facility managers, cleaning experts and industry members - were there to discuss new (scientific) insights, innovative technology and procedures.

Alongside the exhibition and extensive content programme there were many new opportunities to network and socialise. The daily Interclean Social Club offered live entertainment and Feel Good Friday drinks made for a fitting finish to the week.

The next edition of Interclean Amsterdam will take place from April 14-17 2026. Before that, Interclean China takes place in Shanghai from December 11-13 this year.
