The twentieth edition of Pulire Verona (May 24-26), played host to 290 exhibitors, in five exhibition halls spread over 16,000sqmt at Verona Fiere. The fact that 76% of exhibitors are from Italy, confirmed the importance of this event for the Italian economy. The numbers of foreign exhibitors has been growing steadily, now accounting for 24%. Most of the foreign exhibitors were from Germany and Spain, with a delegation from Turkey, which has become a key conduit for trade with the Middle East. There was also a number of exhibitors from China, Brazil, Russia and the United States. There has been an increased participation from manufacturers of paper and derivative products, which may not have their core business in this area, but have seen the opportunities related to investing in this market. On the rise are industrial laundries and solutions for outdoor surface cleaning, and unusual areas, such as cleaning railcars.
