Facility and hospitality managers can once again take part in the Facility Inspiration Event at the Interclean Amsterdam international exhibition, May 12 to 15. The Facility Inspiration Event is being organized by Interclean and the facilities consultancy organization, Atir.

Every day the program will start with a networking lunch. This will be followed by a seminar program with a keynote speaker and various sessions. 

"We have put together a program for each day which links up with developments in a segment of the facilities sector,” says Marieke Weerts, managing partner at Atir. “Our aim is to inspire facility and hospitality managers as to how they can respond even more effectively to future needs."

The three days of the exhibit are devoted consecutively to optimize the supply chain, helping to optimize the customer experience in high traffic environments and creating the most ideal work and living environment. Keynote speakers have been arranged for each day who will outline the developments in the segment. For example, futurist Richard van Hooijdonk is scheduled to speak on May 12. He will give visitors an insight into the future of logistics and supply chain management by explaining, for example, how algorithms can help create a fully automatic supply chain and what facility management will look like in the world of automatic transport flows.

Every day, Josefien ten Have, consumer psychologist at Consumatics, will be introducing visitors to the principles of neuromarketing. During these sessions visitors will gain an insight into the factors which subconsciously contribute to the perception of clean surroundings and the cleaning behavior of employees. She will provide specific, usable examples for each segment.

In cooperation with the Interclean Amsterdam Boasts Exhibit For Facility Managers, which is the driver for circular business operations, a tour is being organized during the Facility Inspiration Event to enable people to find out more about the various start-ups and scale-ups. Participants will be shown concrete examples of circular innovations which are intended specifically for facility management. During the tour visitors will be introduced to, for example, Flynther, a company that makes water-resistant packaging materials, such as waste boxes for hazardous waste produced in the healthcare sector. In addition, The Greenmachine, will present innovations which can be used to reduce waste, like a dewatering machine which enables savings in terms of work space, time and waste costs.

The Interclean Amsterdam international exhibition is taking place May 12 to 15 at RAI Amsterdam. Visitors can take part in the Facility Inspiration Event free of charge and without having to register in advance. The program for the exhibition and the Facility Inspiration Event can viewed here.
