CMS Berlin and the International Trade Fair for Cleaning Systems, Building Management and Services, Europe’s leading cleaning trade fair, will be taking place at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds from 21 to 24 September 2021.
One year before it opens its doors CMS Berlin is already gearing up to go. The cleaning trade fair is launching its international marketing, promotional and press campaign with a newly designed website and advertising.
“The safety and health of our exhibitors, trade visitors, partners and everyone involved in the fair have the utmost priority in the run-up to and during CMS Berlin,” said Heike Hemmer, project manager for CMS Berlin.
“Our aim is to ensure the highest levels of safety at the event.”
In close coordination with the relevant public health authority and based on the recommendations of the Berlin Infection Control Directive, Messe Berlin has established a comprehensive safety and hygiene concept for events in the age of the coronavirus. The concept is based on the following three principles: hygiene, physical distancing and contact tracing.
Thomas Dietrich, National Guild Master of the Federal Guild Association of the Cleaning Trade (BIV), said the BIV is looking ahead with optimism to September 2021.
“During the coronavirus pandemic appreciation and public awareness of topics relating to cleaning, hygiene and cleanliness has grown. In the fight against Covid-19, policymakers and customers have recognised how crucial this trade is in Germany to the economy.
“This represents a boost to our trade and also to CMS Berlin, which every two years sets the tone and showcases innumerable innovations and visions for the future. In our role as the Federal Guild Association of the Cleaning Trade (BIV) we are looking ahead with optimism to September 2021.”
Markus Asch, chairman of the Cleaning Systems Trade Association in the German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association VDMA said the association’s members are already looking forward to the next CMS Berlin.
“Against the backdrop of the global coronavirus pandemic, cleaning and hygiene have become even more important. Public awareness of the need for cleanliness will continue to grow. The important thing now is for the entire cleaning industry to take responsibility for its customers and confront the growing challenges. In that context CMS Berlin has acquired a special significance. Fascinating exchanges, new contacts, innovative products and a new awareness for the topics concerning our industry await us at CMS Berlin.”
Markus Häfner, chairman of the Building Cleaning Division of the Hygiene Industry Association (IHO), said the coronavirus pandemic has emphasised the importance of safety and hygiene, aspects which in society are being viewed in a new and positive light.
“Trade fairs – and in particular CMS Berlin – provide an opportunity, subject to observance of the hygiene measures, to highlight these changes together with all the industry’s players. One of the main aims of IHO members is to present new and innovative concepts to secure long-term hygiene standards and establish them in Germany. As a meeting place for the industry CMS Berlin is indispensable for an in-depth exchange of information in Germany and Europe.”
Exhibitors who register by 15 November 2020 will receive an early bird discount on the regular stand fee at CMS Berlin 2021.
