Embracing the Future - Interclean Amsterdam 2022

Wednesday, 24 November 2021

Interclean returns 10 to 13 May 2022 full of innovations at a face-to-face event that will shape the professional cleaning and hygiene industry for years to come.

Following its remarkable success in 2018, Interclean Amsterdam finally returns to the Dutch capital in 2022 for another edition of the world’s most advanced cleaning and hygiene show. Attracting more than 35,000 professionals from across 143 countries, the 2018 event was a truly international affair. The 2022 show will be no different, bringing the industry together to celebrate the best of cleaning innovation.

Since the 2018 show, a lot has changed. We see an increase in the rightful focus, respect and appreciation the cleaning and hygiene industries receive, alongside the continuing rapid pace of innovation. When the exhibition opens its doors to attendees in May 2022, these major themes are taking over the agenda:

Operational Efficiency, Health & Hygiene, Technological developments, Sustainability for facilities and organisations

Technologies that will drive the future of cleaning

Robotics isn’t a new segment for Interclean Amsterdam by any means, but the recent advances made by manufacturers have been rapid and breath-taking. It’s an area of cleaning innovation that businesses really need to stay up-to-date with if they don’t want to fall behind.

Where automated cleaning machines were once an exciting but expensive solution, but with greater adoption across multiple industries, they are swiftly becoming a viable option for many different commercial environments and industries.

The Robot Arena will offer attendees not just the chance to see the latest robots in action, but to gain a practical, first-hand demonstration of what the new generation of robots can do for them.

Health and Hygiene

COVID-19 creates new challenges and requires new ways of working across industries and new higher demands will continue.

While working arrangements continue to develop, and the competition for good hires increases, better working conditions that include healthy environments and the latest technology are an essential part of the new recruitment landscape.

Ergonomic equipment, Cobotic partnerships and exoskeleton support equipment now feature alongside more traditional methods of cleaning as part of a modern cleaning employment model.

Software That’s Driving Operational Efficiency

Interclean Amsterdam 2016 saw the introduction of the Management & Mobility pavilion, a section of the show dedicated to exhibitors developing software and apps that drive cleaning productivity. In the years since that show, Management & Mobility has become even more vital to providers, which is why the pavilion will be a prominent feature again.

Sustainability will sit at the heart of every segment

Returning to the show next year will be the Zero Waste Lab and Facility Inspiration Event. This will show delegates exactly how to improve their waste management practices for a greener, cleaner future.

With less than 10 years to avert climate catastrophe, cleaning providers are already working hard to adopt sustainable ways of working – from waste management to green cleaning. The Circular Economy, responsible products and resource management will be common threads linking many of the innovations on display.

The Healthcare Cleaning Forum returns

Also making its return to Interclean Amsterdam 2022 is the Healthcare Cleaning Forum.

After its successful introduction in 2018, taking place on Thursday 12 May, the 2022 edition will continue important conversations around healthcare cleaning and infection prevention – organized together with top experts like Prof. Didier Pittet, Alexandra Peters, Prof. Martin Kiernan and Prof. Pierre Parneix.
