EXPOdetergo International, the international event dedicated to the laundry, ironing, and textile care industry, will be back at Fiera Milano (Rho) from 19 to 22 October 2018.
At EXPOdetergo International, more than 250 exhibitors from 20 countries (Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the USA, and the UK) will showcase the best technologies, services, and products for any type and size of laundry facilities, restaurants,
healthcare facilities, and hotels, for which the quality and durability of textiles are essential and the supply of these products should optimise costs.
All this will take place at Fiera Milano (Rho), in halls 1 and 3, the most practical ones, as they are right next to the metro station and the Passante railway, and close to East Gate, one of the district’s main entries.

Updating the future
Thanks to the offering of world leading brands, EXPOdetergo International will showcase the latest and
most performing products available on the market.
The offering of major international specialised players goes from dry cleaning, Italy’s flagship, to wet cleaning.
The trade fair will also be an opportunity to showcase products for the ironing sector, professional detergents – which are increasingly high-performing and environmentally friendly – and complete and automated lines, including packaging. The supply chain is completed by the offering of the textile industry (bedding and table linen), management systems, and 4.0 solutions, which are still not so widespread, but can be a great opportunity for relaunching and improving the performance of your business.
There will be room for all the treatment stages – including transport, storage of clothes and dirty textile products, selection of treatments, washing, ironing, and packaging before the final delivery – united by one common thread, which is well expressed by the advertising campaign that has been promoting the event for two years now: “less is better”. Because the industry’s progress is measured by the capability of obtaining the best performance by using the smallest amount of resources, whether it is energy, water, or detergents. A choice with a clear ethical and social implication, but also a unique tool to stand out from the crowd and be competitive. Achieving the same result or, better still,
using less energy, water, and time is the key to staying on the market. EXPOdetergo International wants to convey this message to all the professionals operating in the laundry industry.
Eco-sustainability is a value appreciated at every level of the supply chain, but is also a growth and development target, which is reached through different solutions that ensure efficient results. From the ability to manage the  washing of large loads saving water and electrical energy to the characteristics of zero impact detergents and additives that were designed to protect the environment, from the time-saving processes, which allow for a reduction in the environmental impact of systems through more targeted and limited uses, to locally-sourced services which reduce transport costs,
the focus on environmental impacts is now widespread throughout the sector.The market is therefore projected towards an eco-friendly development, and this will be revealed in all its aspects during the 4-day event.
Knowledge is the best tool to be competitive
Professional training, in-depth knowledge of the market and its mechanisms, and being up-to-date with
the latest products are essential elements for a serious professional. But they are also the best tools for seizing opportunities that ensure business continuity and growth.
That’s why beyond the exhibition offerings, the show promises to be an essential observatory of the changing market. In fact, during the upcoming edition, two interesting studies will be presented, to take stock of the situation in two markets which are different one from the other, while both being active and dynamic, such as industrial wet cleaners and dry cleaners.
The two studies, commissioned by EXPOD ETERGO from Cerved, will be presented on Friday 19 during two
events, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon, at the Event Area, Hall 1.
The two studies will be a precious tool for exploring the state of the art of the two most important areas in the sector, stimulating new ideas among all the industry players, and helping entrepreneurs, professionals, sales people and operators in the laundry industry identify new, promising paths for their own businesses.
