Interclean Amsterdam 2020 goes virtual

After consultation, with their Exhibition Committee and major
stakeholders, the organisers of Interclean Amsterdam decided to cancel
the in person event in 2020 and will host a virtual version of the
event from 3-6 November.
“This decision is disappointing for all of us, especially as RAI
Amsterdam is ready to organise Interclean Amsterdam COVID-secure and
fully in line with all health and safety guidelines. RAI Amsterdam has
worked tirelessly to adapt all its facilities and protocols to enable
events to be held in a safe, responsible and hospitable manner, says
Bas Dalm, Executive Vice President Exhibition & Sales at RAI
Amsterdam. But as the situation COVID-19 continues to evolve, and many
of our international exhibitors and visitors have been forced to
cancel their plans to participate at Interclean due to market
conditions and continued travel restrictions, we feel that the show
can no longer deliver the quality expected of Interclean as the
largest global cleaning and hygiene platform and therefore will move
forward to a virtual experience for 2020.
For more than 50 years, Interclean has provided the most complete
meeting place for the global cleaning and hygiene industry. By
organising the virtual event from 3-6 November, we plan to continue to
play a vital role in supporting the industry to get back on track,
wherever we are able. Online educational sessions with different
themes will complement each other and are available for everybody
throughout the day as well as the possibility to visit companies, plan
meetings and socialize with peers.”
Bas Dalm continues: “This year’s Interclean Amsterdam in May would
have been the largest ever, postponing the event to 2022 will result
again in a strong, value adding event for the industry with high
benefits for all parties. Due to the consequences of the COVID-19
outbreak, our mission cannot be accomplished successfully now, thus we
believe it is the right decision to hold on and come back even
stronger together in 2022. Our confidence in the future is
strengthened by the commitment shown from the many stakeholders
already reconfirming their participation in the 2022 event.
In a time when the subject of hygiene is one of the most discussed in
the world, we want to bring the expertise of all the major cleaning
and (environmental) hygiene suppliers together to connect with those
who are searching the best solutions to open up their facilities
again. Going completely virtual this year allows us to still provide a
place for the industry to gather, share knowledge and connect with
other industries who are in need of expertise. It also opens the doors
for interaction and collaboration with industry representatives who
may have been unable to travel to our event in the past.”
