"We are thrilled with the turn-out at Interclean China 2023," says director at Interclean Global Events Robert Stelling. “Although it was a smaller show compared to the previous edition and to our other event, Interclean Amsterdam, the cautious economic climate didn't dampen the enthusiasm and excitement of those attending.

"People gathered at Interclean China from all over the world, eager to explore the latest products, services and facilities which are revolutionising the future of cleaning and hygiene. High on the agenda for those attending were the many exciting new developments in smart technology, as well as establishing relationships with industry role players.

“A show like Interclean China is also the perfect event to network with industry experts, suppliers, manufacturers and exporters. I'm sure that this unique experience will lead to some very exciting collaborations and partnerships in the future."
The atmosphere at the show was buzzing, with visitors from a very wide range of countries such as Brazil, Benin, South Africa, UAE, Thailand, Italy and Kazakhstan. Visitors mentioned how excited they were to discover so many suppliers. Some were on the lookout for specific products and equipment to enhance their offering as cleaning companies or facilities managers, while many others wanted to establish relationships with manufacturers and suppliers to grow their business and develop new markets.
