Parallel with the international trade show for the cleaning sector, CMS Berlin 2017 (19-22 Sept.), the WFBSC (World Federation of Building Service Contractors) Congress will be bringing all the major decision-makers from every continent together in the German capital to address the subject of ‘Cleaning in a Digital World – Processes, People, Technology’. In addition to the papers being given by prominent speakers, from 18 to 20 September the program will also feature some fascinating panel discussions and numerous networking events.
The topics to be dealt with by the participants in this conference include the digitisation of business and society, its importance for commercial cleaning, and its impact on this sector, as well as the challenges that the industry will face in the future. The program of papers will focus on the effects on people, staff and customers alike, and on automation. The venue will be Hall 7 on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds (Berlin ExpoCenter City). The WFBSC Congress will be officially opened by EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger (opening event at 9 a.m. on 18 September, Hall 7).
