ISSA and RAI Amsterdam herzien samenwerking
ISSA, de wereldwijde vereniging voor de schoonmaakindustrie, en RAI Amsterdam, eigenaar van het wereldwijde onafhankelijke beursplatform Interclean, kondigen aan dat zij hun overeenkomst hebben herzien. De nieuwe overeenkomst geeft beide organisaties de mogelijkheid voor de wereldwijde markt. Op 7 november kondigde RAI Amsterdam de herintroductie van de merknaam Interclean aan én beeindiging van de samenwerking met ISSA. Hierna het Engelstalige persbericht over de ‘reconstructure’, de vernieuwde samenwering.
ISSA and RAI Amsterdam are committed to serving the professional cleaning and hygiene industry and are determined to ensure that exhibitors and attendees alike continue to have the ability to discover the latest innovations and take advantage of business opportunities at the industry’s premier shows in Amsterdam, Istanbul, and the Americas. Both ISSA and INTERCLEAN trade show calendars will not change as a result of this agreement. The Amsterdam event May 15 – 18, 2018, will remain part of the RAI portfolio, along with Istanbul. The trade shows in America and Mexico will remain ISSA events.
As part of the restructured strategy, ISSA will rebrand its family of shows, starting with the ISSA Show 2018, October 29-November 1, in Dallas, TX, USA, and including all other ISSA shows in Mexico, Australia, and South Africa. RAI has indicated that the Amsterdam and Istanbul events will be renamed INTERCLEAN. ISSA remains committed to providing member educational and networking programs, as well as benefits for exhibiting in Amsterdam. Both RAI and ISSA look forward to a productive future, supporting each other’s events and working together to develop and improve the global industry, while ensuring they create value for the future of the global cleaning industry.
