Interclean Amsterdam 2020 to host Professional Laundry Conference

Interclean Amsterdam, in partnership with the International Committee of Textile Care (CINET), is proud to announce the addition of the first Professional Laundry Conference to its 2020 exhibition.

The Professional Laundry Conference will take place on Wednesday 13 May from 10.30am to 1pm, offering 150 attendees the chance to explore the opportunities and challenges involved in the on-premise laundry (OPL) sector.

It will be a unique event that brings together leading industry experts to deliver key insights, share best practices and highlight successful business approaches to professional textile care. Set across four sessions, the conference will offer a series of talks, masterclasses and presentations designed to help delegates develop effective approaches to their laundry operations and bring greater value to the wider business.

The Professional Laundry Conference will be powered by CINET, the world’s leading umbrella organisation for global professional textile care industry. Alongside its research projects and other activities, CINET is partnering with Interclean Amsterdam to share the latest developments in textile care and OPL.

Discovering the power of professional textile care

The Professional Laundry Conference will kick off with a welcome address by the moderator – Leon Wennekes, the Secretary General of CINET. Peter Wennekes, President & CEO of CINET, will then discuss the major trends shaping the world of professional textile care.

Another expert talk will see Geert Böttger, CEO of Expo+Consulting Associates, explore the differences between laundry and professional textile care. He will outline the key values of textile care, highlight how it can achieve a positive societal impact, and outline important market developments – alongside a roadmap for the future of the sector.

A highlight of the conference will be the Professional Textile Care Master Class. This will feature an exploration of best practices led by Dr Henk Gooijer, the Technical Project Director for TKT, and Simon Hemmes, Technical Consultant & former Senior Application Specialist at Diversey. As well as looking at approaches to laundry flow and design, the session will help companies find their way on important topics like green cleaning, sustainability and automation.

Delegates will also be able to enjoy the presentation of three business cases from across a range of market segments and territories. From strategic partnerships to laundry-on-demand, the last session of the day will offer a more practical understanding of how to improve laundry operations and their total cost of ownership.

The Professional Laundry Conference will be a fascinating new addition to the wider Interclean Amsterdam event – underlining its ability to lead the way in the professional cleaning and hygiene industry.

“We’re excited to be bringing the Professional Laundry Conference to Interclean Amsterdam this year,” said Rob Den Hertog, Director of Professional Cleaning & Hygiene at Interclean Amsterdam. “Not only will it be a great opportunity for our visitors to hear from the top experts in the field, but it’ll also be yet another chance to network and connect with peers – exploring solutions to each other’s challenges. It’s what Interclean Amsterdam is all about.”

“It’s a privilege to work in partnership with Interclean Amsterdam on the Professional Laundry Conference,” said Leon Wennekes, Secretary General of CINET. “There are so many ways in which businesses can improve their operations through effective professional textile care. We’re looking forward to sharing our experts’ insights and helping Interclean attendees discover the latest innovations in this area.”
