The registration counters opened to visitors at 10am every morning, but visitors queued up well in advance. Long lines at the counter were a daily sight, and our spot registrations never had a moment of respite.
Old contacts were renewed, many new acquaintances made and an untold number of conversations were converted into contracts. Visitors from facility management companies, as well as individual customers from the healthcare, hospitality, railway and other industries hopped from stall to stall, looking for and finding solutions to their very specific problems. Every hour, parts of the Expo area would come to a standstill for a few minutes, as visitors gathered to witness live demonstrations of path-breaking products that are set to revolutionise the market.
By the end of each day, some machines proudly sported a sticker announcing that they’d been purchased at the expo itself. And when the whistle blew at 6pm for the gates to shut, visitors had to be requested by security personnel to leave. Such was their enthusiasm to know more about the latest in the cleaning technology. But they came back the next day, and we hope to see them again next year.
CLEAN INDIA SHOW
Our flagship exhibition, Clean India Show — 16th edition — has grown from strength to strength, registering about 500% visitor increase since its inception in 2005. Visitors who entered the Expo hall were greeted by the sight of expansive booths and smaller stalls, each attractively and innovatively designed, artfully showcasing the finest in cleaning technology and products. Senior marketing managers, directors and CEOs of companies stood close at hand, ready to explain and demonstrate the unique capabilities of their product, and answer every last visitor’s query
Angad Rajain, Global Head-IFM, Tenon Facilities Management India Pvt. Ltd: I’ve been wandering through the Expo area and in just half an hour, I’m thrilled to see so many domestic and international partners and vendors. Had I not come, I would have missed out on something important.
Bharathi Kamath, MD-CareWell Facilities India Pvt. Ltd: This expo has exposed us to a lot of new equipment. The amount of relevance that has been given to certain parts of the industry, that were unheard of until five years ago, is commendable. There’s a lot that one can pick up and also learn from here.
Dr Dhruv Mamtora, Consultant Clinical Microbiologist and Infection Control officer, S.L. Raheja-Fortis Associate Hospital, Mumbai: Multiple companies participated, and also, I got to see such a huge aundry, cleaning and sanitationrelated exhibitions for the first time ever, with so many national and international companies participating at the same. It definitely helps people see what is new, and how to introduce new technologies in their day-to-day work for better management of facilities and better cleanliness to prevent spread of infections.
