Interclean Amsterdam 2022 Celebrates Return With 4-Day Event

Interclean Amsterdam came to an end last Friday (May 13) after four sun-drenched days. The sun was shining outside, but also inside the halls, where everyone made the most of being able to meet each other in person again after a four-year break. An international ensemble of 669 exhibitors and 25,886 visitors from 125 countries came together at RAI Amsterdam. Apart from the focus on a personal reunion, there were plenty of opportunities to do business, experience product innovations and attend the extensive knowledge program. Particular attention was paid to young talent, cleaning in the healthcare sector and updates for facility managers. Anyone who wishes to relive the experience can do so during the coming month by re-watching various keynote speaker sessions via Clean Connect.
