CMS Berlin 2021 goes online

CMS Berlin 2021 goes online as in-person return moves to 2023

CMS Berlin 2021 will now only take part online due to ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, with the next in-person event set to take place at Messe Berlin from 19 – 22 September 2023.

Heike Hemmer, Project Director for CMS Berlin, said: “Following in-depth discussions with our supporting associations we jointly agreed to reschedule the next in-person CMS Berlin for 2023.”

Frank Ulbricht, Chairman of the Cleaning Systems Trade Association in the VDMA, added: “The cleaning industry needs face-to-face contact with partners and customers from Europe and the whole world. The opportunities for that will remain limited for the foreseeable future. We therefore welcome the decision to focus on 2023 and hold CMS again in its customary and successful form.”

CMS Berlin will provide a virtual platform starting on 21 September 2021 called ‘CMS Plus’. Exhibitors will be able to present products and services from every branch of the commercial cleaning industry for a year, while the platform will let trade visitors get information, exchange ideas and network. Organisers say the service will be regularly expanded.

Thomas Dietrich, National Guild Master of the Building Cleaning Trade (BIV), commented: “Due to the ongoing pandemic it is right to offer safe and innovative alternative concepts to the four-day in-person event. What is clear is that at a time at which cleaning, hygiene and cleanliness are vital to the system, it is more important than ever to promote information and dialogue. CMS Plus can be a fascinating first platform concept for that purpose.”

Markus Häfner, Chairman of the Building Cleaning Department of the Hygiene Industry Association (IHO), said: “We support the joint decision to focus on CMS Berlin as an in-person event in 2023. It affords all exhibitors and partners a new perspective.”

Matthias Steckmann, Divisional Head at Messe Berlin, concluded: “By offering a virtual platform, CMS Berlin can react highly flexibly to the latest developments. We see CMS Plus as being an important future part of the trade fair concept of exhibiting the cleaning industry’s innovations. We are thus consistently implementing Messe Berlin's overall ‘Messe Plus’ concept.”
