Next parts2clean with International Convention
The next leading international trade fair for cleaning within the production process will again take place in Stuttgart from the 20th through the 22nd of October, 2009. Bookings and reservations for booth floor space which have already been received indicate that further growth can be expected. “This is also signified by the fact that demand for solutions and information resulting from ever stricter cleanliness requirements will increase in practically all sectors all over the world. For this reason, I also see further growth potential for parts2clean in even stronger internationalisation of both the exhibitors and the visitors – a factor we’re of course working on”, elaborates Hartmut Herdin, Managing Director of event promoters fairXperts GmbH. An international convention addressing the issues of “Requirements, Technologies and Markets – Worldwide”, presented for the first time within the framework of parts2clean 2009, will contribute to the attainment of this goal.
