Tuesday, 18 June 2024

Interclean Amsterdam 2024 has come and gone in a whirlwind of products, people and limitless potential! Undoubtedly the most successful show yet, this edition proved to be bigger, bolder and more impressive than ever before – with a record attendance and rave reviews.

Overall, an international crowd of 875 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors from 143 countries converged on RAI Amsterdam from 14 to 17 May 2024. Visitors and exhibitors were unanimous in their praise of this highly anticipated four-day phenomenon.

The key goal this year was to create an event for the international professional cleaning and hygiene community that was more than just a trade show – offering, instead, a fully immersive experience. Interclean Amsterdam has always been the global platform where industry professionals can meet and mingle as they explore the newest innovations, discover the latest trends and learn from the experts – all of which future proofs their business and helps them thrive.

Superb quality content and industry insights

The 2024 programme boasted a rich tapestry of content spread across various stages, each catering to specific areas of interest. The main stage delivered thought-provoking keynote addresses and presentations on the most pressing topics impacting the cleaning industry.

The other stages centred around specific themes: Sustainability, Healthcare & Hygiene, and Data & Technology; while deep dive sessions offered insightful discussions on specific cleaning challenges and solutions. Product demonstrations brought cutting edge cleaning technologies and solutions to life, while interactive workshops gave attendees the opportunity to get hands on experience with the latest groundbreaking tools to take their cleaning experience and expertise to the next level.

Amsterdam Innovation Award

One of the highlights of the show was the highly anticipated announcement of the prestigious Amsterdam Innovation Award – revealed at the opening of Interclean Amsterdam 2024. This year the overall winner of the prestigious Award was presented to Diversey - A Solenis Company for its LESSEAU® NO-Touch Bar Soap dispenser & refills. An exciting new addition to the line-up this year, the Cleaners’ Choice Award, was awarded to Baudoin Wash-Systems for its Baudoin Wash Drone. The Visitors’ Choice Award, granted by fellow professionals and industry partners, was won by Kärcher for its KIRA CV 50.

Healthcare Cleaning Forum

On Thursday 16 May, the third edition of The Healthcare Cleaning Forum was held. This unique 1-day conference was organised by Interclean in close cooperation with CleanHospitals®, focussing on the importance of environmental hygiene in the fight against infections in hospitals and other care institutions. Here healthcare experts, including infection prevention specialists and facility managers, cleaning experts and industry members joined to discuss new scientific insights, innovative technology and groundbreaking procedures. The programme, with breakout sessions and top keynote speakers Prof. Didier Pittet, Clare Nash, Prof. Martin Kiernan, Prof. Brett Mitchell, Edmée Bowles, and Dr Alexandra Peters, was a huge success.

Sensational social sessions

Interclean Amsterdam isn't just about business – it's about fostering connections, forging valuable partnerships, learning from industry experts and building a vibrant community. In addition to an extensive range of knowledge sessions, Interclean offered a vibrant networking programme including the daily Interclean Social Club with live entertainment and Feel Good Friday where referee Bjorn Kuipers and the biggest Friday afternoon drink ensured a superb finish. This proved to be the perfect way to unwind after a busy exhibition day, network with industry peers and enjoy amazing entertainment.
