CMS 2017 on course for success


Messe Berlin reports high demand from exhibitors – 22nd WFBSC Congress now open for registration
With barely more than a year to go before CMS 2017 Berlin – Cleaning.Management.Services. opens its doors Messe Berlin is able to report substantial bookings for the fair. Around 70 per cent of available hall space has already been taken. Germany is Europe’s largest market for commercial cleaning technology, and the number of exhibitors and decision-makers which CMS 2017 is attracting is correspondingly high. Besides all of Germany’s leading manufacturers of cleaning machines and products registering for the fair, the level of demand from exhibitors is also due to a continuing rise in international interest. The International Trade Fair for Cleaning Systems, Building Management and Services, Europe’s leading cleaning trade fair this coming year, will take place on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds from 19 to 22 September 2017.

World Federation of Building Service Contractors in Berlin for the first time
One of the big highlights at CMS 2017 is certain to be the congress of the World Federation of Building Service Contractors (WFBSC). From 18 to 20 September 2017, parallel with the cleaning trade fair, the WFBSC will be meeting in the German capital for the first time. Cleaning industry decision-makers from all over the world will be gathering at this congress in Berlin to exchange information, ensuring that CMS 2017 will attract even more highprofile trade visitors. The headline topic of the industry’s leading international conference is ’Cleaning in the digital world – processes, people technology’.

Registration for the congress is open from now until 27 July 2017 at reduced rates. Participation in the congress costs 1,200 euros (incl. 19 % VAT). The programme for accompanying persons costs 550 euros (incl. 19 % VAT). The registration fee after 27 July 2017 will be 1,500 euros and 600 euros respectively.
