Dubai, UAE: The spotlight will shine on the Middle East’s commercial cleaning and hygiene sectors this month in Dubai, as global suppliers present their latest equipment and technologies for thousands of regional trade buyers and industry professionals.
More than 60 exhibitors from 15 countries will descend upon Middle East Cleaning Technology Week 2018 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, eager to entice regional decision makers, whether they be from hospitals and hotels, or airlines, malls, and supermarkets.
The annual three-day event takes place from 13-15 November 2018, and brings the entire cleaning industry under its umbrella with three distinct platforms; Gulf Laundrex for the laundry and dry-cleaning sector, Clean Middle East Expo for the cleaning-contractor segment, and Gulf Carwash for the car-care business.
Independent operators, purchasing or laundry managers, and industrial hygiene consultants alike will witness the latest innovations in a global cleaning services market that, according to consultants Allied Market Research, will be worth US$74.29 billion by 2022.
The Gulf region in particular is seen as a key growth market for professional cleaning technologies, aided by bustling activities in construction, hospitality, healthcare, food manufacturing, and retail.
Jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt Middle East and VIS Exhibitions and Conferences, Middle East Cleaning Technology Week 2018 is in its 4th edition, focusing attention on creating a sustainable future by bringing all facets of the industry under one roof.
Nathan Lloyd, Chief Operating Officer of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, said, “Middle East Cleaning Technology Week is designed to showcase the latest innovations, technology and products that are changing the face of the cleaning industry worldwide, to a region that is key growth market for global suppliers.
“With sustained growth in retail, logistics, hospitality and commercial infrastructure, and a growing preference for cleaner technologies that are kinder to the environment, Middle East markets are ready to welcome the latest innovative products and technology that are brought to the region through this dedicated platform.”
MECTW’s Gulf Laundrex is presented by Texcare, a quadrennial trade fair in Frankfurt covering innovative technologies for all stages along the modern textile-care chain.
Gulf Laundrex turns the spotlight on the fast-changing laundry and dry-cleaning industries, featuring a number of regional and local exhibitors, including Maxi Press from Germany, Turkish companies Hayikama Makine and Temel Makine, and Jensen and Natronic from the UAE.
Meanwhile, the latest technologies and innovations as well as key market trends that are driving the cleaning and hygiene industry will be on show at Clean Middle East Expo, with the focus on applications across the hospitality, healthcare, logistics, food processing and manufacturing sectors.
Key international suppliers exhibiting at Clean Middle East Expo include Hartdean from the UK, SRTEX International from Pakistan, Spanish company Teinnova, and German brands Systeco Vertriebs and Vileda Professional.
All of these and many more are lining up their latest products and machinery for the benefit of the Middle East trade buyers. Systeco, for example, will demonstrate its patented eco-friendly cleaning technology through its Tornado ACS cleaning machine, used for cleaning building facades and floors.
Uwe Dyballa, CEO of Systeco said the Tornado ACS operates using a vacuum blast method without the use of high pressure water or chemicals: “The eco-friendly technology of the Tornado ACS cleaning machine is the ideal alternative to pressure washers and dry ice blasting, enabling residue-free removal of graffiti and environmental contaminants on all mineral surfaces,” said Dyballa.
“This minimally-abrasive cleaning technology enables an eco-friendly gentle cleaning, devarnishing and removal of lacquer from surfaces. With the vacuum blast method, the Tornado ACS cleans in a continuous circulation. Thus used granules can be reused in following cycles.
Maxi Press will also showcase its repertoire of membranes and spare parts for the laundry and dry cleaning industries. The company manufactures and sells membranes and other spare and special parts for water extraction presses such as drainage plates and basket guides, parts for batch washers such as seals, wheels and drive elements, as well as elements for dryers such as friction wheels and heat exchangers.
Various parts for ironers and feeders are also available from Maxi Press, all of which will be on show at Middle East Cleaning Technology Week
