The international textile care trade Fair returns from the 21st to the 24th of October. More than 200 exhibitors, new technologies and solutions under the name of sustainability and efficiency: the appointment with the innovation for the laundries is waiting for you at Fiera Milano

An important edition, not only for the special moment that we are passing through, but above all for all the added value that the technologies, new products and services can represent in a market that is experiencing a real revolution.  Covid shuffled the cards. The industrial laundries have always continued to work (at least those dealing with the healthcare sector and RSAs) – paradoxically even more intensively – but they had to face the consequences of changing volumes.

While the hospitals increased their demand for uniforms and flat linen, the laundries on the other hand, that have always worked with hotels and catering, have passed through periods when the work volumes have almost completely disappeared due to the mobility restrictions and generalised lockdowns. The laundries serving the accommodation facilities from the large cities, with less domestic tourism but that have always depended on the tourism from other countries, have suffered the most.

The situation of the laundry shops is also complex: the long lockdown – with social restrictions and the increasing smart working – has reduced the customers. The current geopolitical situation is leading to higher costs, including high energy costs and raw material shortages. In this scenario, technologies, new services, but also the formation and updates guaranteed by the four-days trade fair become more important than ever. The trade fair meeting becomes more valuable: discussing, teaming up, acting as a supply chain become key elements for remaining competitive.

EXPOdetergo International 2022, the international trade fair event waiting for us at Fiera Milano from 21 to 24 October, thanks to the proposal of more than 200 exhibiting companies, including many world leaders, will present tailor-made solutions for everyone: more efficient washing and ironing machines, automation systems capable of improving the performance of each activity, sustainable detergents, as the result of some years of research and development. Investing in new technologies, but also training gain new techniques, new fabrics, new management methods are a fundamental tool to better cope the current phase of change.

The trade show will give once again space to the excellence, allowing the entire offer available worldwide on the market today in terms of technologies, products and services for the textile care to be evaluated in a single context: dry-cleaning and water-washing machines; ironing machines; professional detergents; management systems and 4.0 solutions; complete and automated lines, to the textile proposals (bedding and table linen), with fine fabrics and linen for rental.

Three focus keys for the laundry of the future
Sustainability, digitalisation, sanitisation: these are the focus keys and guidelines of an exhibition proposal that will allow all the operators – from those working in the industrial laundries to the small laundry shops owners – to remain updated and discover the greatest innovations available on the market in terms of technologies, products and services.
Sustainability: the low environmental impact and the energy efficiency are both increasingly demanded goals for the entire sector. EXPOdetergo International 2022 will display the fruits of the past years of research, in the field of: machinery, additives and detergents. Doing more with less is in fact the main goal driving the progress of the entire sector: more efficiency, hygiene and productivity obtained using less energy, water and detergents.
Digitalisation: from touch screen interfaces to software and fully automated lines, all the innovation that is changing the industry will be available at the exhibition. The increasingly widespread use of digital tools capable of monitoring and making the entire activity more efficient and efficient helps to make work safer and more efficient, but at the same time it changes the working methods, between remote management and systems that guarantee more ergonomic workstations.
Sanitisation: the pandemic has now taught us to rediscover the value of sanitisation and hygiene, that the sector can now guarantee thanks to the long experience of the companies behind it. Techniques, products and machines for the fabrics treatment that are used in areas such as healthcare or the Ho.Re.Ca., where, today more than ever, the disinfection is crucial, will be the centrepieces of the offer for many companies.

The digital, a tool for experiencing the fair at its best EXPOdetergo International will be a future-oriented trade show also thanks to the new digital solutions that Fiera Milano is offering to the exhibitors and visitors, which will allow them to experience the trade fair in a “phygital” way, before, during and after the exhibition days:
