History of Interclean
Where the story of Interclean began...
The story begins when Interclean was born in Amsterdam’s famous Café Hoppe. Two window washers, enjoying a dutch genever came up with the idea to organise an exhibition dedicated to cleaning. Since the very first Interclean in 1967, the exhibition has developed to become the world’s leading trade fair for the cleaning industry.
The first edition of Interclean took place in 1967. The internationalism of the show has increased substantially where it has grown to become the largest and leading cleaning show in the world. As an established exhibition with a fifty year track record, it is the most international cleaning event with the highest number of visitors and international attendance in the industry. The event has proudly gained international recognition and earned a high level of loyalty from global visitors and exhibitors. It has become the must-attend business event for cleaning professionals worldwide, and showcases the latest developments and market leading products, services, and solutions.
Interclean Amsterdam is seen and praised as the flagship of our Interclean Amsterdam trade shows and is organized by RAI Amsterdam. It provides a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in the field of international cleaning and attracts key decision makers from the largest industrial, commercial, medical, institutional, municipal, hospitality, and educational facilities.
