"Interclean is proud to have succeeded in providing an online platform that brought the industry familiar faces and new experts to share ideas with. And importantly to facilitate networking, stimulate business and provide the stage for innovation. The live studio setting with moderators brought a human element and the recordings have made it possible for everyone to join.
