Though it was the first foray into the Gujarat cleaning market, the cleaning industry was bullish. The proof was the number of first time exhibitors.

Potential in the market
Though the Indian cleaning market is still growing and the potential is limitless, the Gujarat cleaning market is still in its nascent stage. With the ‘Swachch Bharat Abhiyan’ now being adopted nationwide, the potential of the cleaning industry is on the rise.
Vijay Korgaonkar, GM, Best Practice Washroom Pvt Ltd:
“It was a very good experience for those participating as well as visiting the Show. We thank the Clean India Show for providing with a platform to showcase the very best of the cleaning industry for the benefit of the visitors. A lot of interest with respect to washroom hygiene was witnessed among the visitors. With an array of products and services to choose from, the visitors to the Clean India Show were the real winners.”
Meindert De Boer, BD Advisor, TVH India Pvt Ltd: “Finding spare parts for cleaning equipment is quite difficult and we aim to be a one-stop shop for all spares. India is a new market when it comes to cleaning, so there is a huge potential with room for massive growth. In the next few years, we believe that it will be the biggest market for us.”
Changing mind-set and going beyond cleanliness
Nutech Jetting Equipments India Pvt Ltd: “It is evident from the visitors’ response that the mind set on sanitation and hygiene is evolving. Clean India Show is doing a commendable work of increasing awareness on cleanliness and supporting the cleaning industry in India.”
Sterling Hygiene Tissue Pvt Ltd:
“We are very happy with the initiative that Clean India Show has taken to create awareness on the importance of cleanliness and hygiene. The push that the cleaning industry requires has been provided by the ‘Swachch Bharat Campaign; flagged off by our Prime Minister. We hope that the cleaning industry can come together and make the campaign a grand success.”
Aneesh, Branch Manager-Operations at Gujarat, Rentokil Initial India: “We have received a good response especially from the food and pharma segments for our services and also from the residential end for our pest management. Clean India Show is a great platform in creating awareness on the various kinds of services that is available in the market today. Thumbs Up! I wish that the show continues with its success story.”
Girish Nanda, Managing Director, Intercare Cleaning and Hygiene Services Pvt Ltd: “Clean India Shows’ contribution and support to the cleaning industry has been remarkable. But there is a need now to go beyond cleanliness and focus on sanitation and hygiene. ‘Looking clean’ and ‘being clean’ are two very different concepts. It is time that the Indian cleaning industry matures and accepts globally prevalent parameters in hygiene and sanitation.”
Dashrath Purohit, Proprietor, Shubham Industries: “Our expectations from the Show keep on increasing with every passing year and we are glad to say that not only the Show meets our expectations but also often exceeds it.”
