Under the main theme of ‘Inject Innovation’ the CMS World Summit 2019 will be bringing decision-makers and creative thinkers from the cleaning industry all over the world to Berlin Sept. 24-27. 

The event will focus on the challenges, opportunities and risks involved with digitalization and sustainability in the cleaning industry, and will consider the dominant themes, such as the circular economy and artificial intelligence. 

“Sustainability and digitalization are ever-present in the cleaning industry as major trend-setting factors,” says Heike Hemmer, project manager, CMS Berlin. “AI is the topic on everyone’s lips. With the CMS World Summit 2019 Messe Berlin is providing the international cleaning community with a crash course for the future. The format offers a wealth of opportunities for an individual exchange of information. The program of papers and discussions ensures a transfer of knowledge at the highest level.”

The two-day conference forms part of the International Cleaning Trade Fair CMS Berlin 2019 – Cleaning.Management.Services., and will take place at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds. 

The event on Sept. 25 includes discussion on the opportunities and risks presented by artificial intelligence, the circular economy’s role in the cleaning industry, employee development, and price management. 

The main discussion taken place on Sept. 26, “Future Technology and Business Possibilities,” examines a number of topics including managing disruptions in the digital transformation, future technologies and business opportunities the cleaning industry might face, and a panel discussion pertaining to cleaning in the future.
