Interclean Amsterdam is one of the world’s largest cleaning industrial events for professionals, where the most prestigious players in the industry take part. After a four-year break, this May particular attention was paid to young talent, cleaning in the healthcare sector and updates for Facility Managers.
The international ensemble of 669 exhibitors and 25886 visitors from 125 countries came together again for 4 days of knowledge-sharing, product experience and dealing business at Interclean Amsterdam 2022.
As Robert Stelling, director of Interclean Global Events pointed out the event has demonstrated that the power of personal interaction is extremely valuable. „I am also proud of the Healthcare Cleaning Forum where we bridged the gap between infection prevention and cleaning. It was also fantastic to see how our sector is dealing with sustainability. On top of all that we learned that robotisation has now really taken off.” – Stelling added.
Cleaning robots play a key role in transforming the business
The Innovation Lab, the Robot Arena and the Zero Waste Dome brought the latest innovative solutions, trends and developments into the limelight. The profession now shares the view that digitization is gaining strength in the facility management industry and cleaning robots play a key role in this.
It is not accidental that professionals at this trade fair were so keen on Robin, the autonomous cleaning robot developed by the R&D team of B+N Referencia Zrt. This popular and good-looking equipment ‘took a tour’ every one and a half hours in the Robot Arena created for this purpose under the attention of a great number of visitors.
The Hungarian cleaning robot is unrivalled
Péter Zalka, the head of the company’s R&D Department says that Robin is considered to be unique even among the top class robots of this trade fair because, in contrast to the other equipment, it maps its own cleaning path, which means that it offers a completely universal solution.
For B+N, business networking is a key benefit of taking part in this trade fair, besides introducing Robin to the public. As Péter Zalka put it: “manufacturers of equipment parts and accessories were important as they could become prominent partners in the future. There were several companies at the fair showing interest in cooperation in the field of robotized cleaning”.
