Update: Interclean Amsterdam (in response to a request for clarification)
"Hi Jan, Thank you for your message and checking the facts.
To answer your question:
We sent out a letter to all our Amsterdam exhibitors, that obviously also includes ISSA members to inform them. A separate letter was sent to the exhibitors in the Pavilion of the Americas in Amsterdam (all of them are ISSA members) informing them on the situation and reassuring them that their stand as booked via ISSA is still theirs and they will not have to worry about their participation in Amsterdam as the organisation was and is still done by RAI.
In the meantime we have already received several confirmations of these American exhibitors that they are reconfirming their participation in the new situation.
For Interclean Amsterdam the organisation will not change at all, we have always been in charge and 100% owner. Only 250 of our exhibitors are in fact ISSA members and many of them already replied that this name change is not really an issue for them.
We are talking to ISSA to decide what we will do with the organisation of our Istanbul and Latin America events as they are co-owned by RAI and ISSA.
At the moment we are focusing on organising another great in Amsterdam as you have come to expect from us.
Thank you for your support and all the best,
Hilke de Vries - Interclean, RAI Amsterdam, Marketing & PR Manager"
