Intensive technical discussions, a very busy technical forum and a positive mood on all three days of the trade show: the 20th Parts2clean, which ended on September 28, met expectations. More than 3,000 trade visitors came to the event, most of them with current tasks and projects as well as a great need for knowledge. This resulted in high-quality contacts, new projects and even direct business deals for the more than 150 exhibitors from 14 countries. Cleanliness plays an increasingly important role in more and more industrial sectors, this conclusion can be drawn after the end of the 20th Parts2clean. This is made clear by the tasks and projects with which the visitors came to the Stuttgart trade fair center from October 26 to 28, 2023. The foreign share was around 20%, the strongest visitor nations were Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Austria and the Netherlands.
The considerable increase in visitor numbers of around 33% compared to the previous year was certainly also due to the High Purity highlight theme, which was added to the core areas of the leading international trade fair for industrial parts and surface cleaning for the first time this year.
In total, more than 150 exhibitors from 14 countries presented new, further developed and proven products as well as services for industrial parts and surface cleaning on around 4500 m2. The fact that they were largely able to hold very detailed discussions about specific projects was due to the above-average proportion of trade visitors (99%). Around 88 % are involved in operational investment decisions and around 80 % visited the trade show with investment intentions. "A magnet for visitors has always been the Parts2clean bilingual technical forum. But this year it underpinned its status as one of the world's most sought-after sources of knowledge on industrial parts and surface cleaning with record attendance," reports Christoph Nowak, Project Director at the organizer Deutsche Messe AG. And the numbers speak for themselves: a total of 2700 times knowledge transfer par excellence by listening to the simultaneously translated (German <> English) presentations of renowned speakers from science, research and industry to generate or deepen cleaning knowledge. "The enormous popularity shows that there is an immense need for information both for classic cleaning tasks and high-purity applications, which will continue to increase due to changed and new requirements," adds Christoph Nowak.
