Middle East Cleaning Technology Week - Key visual

About the exhibition

The region’s dedicated trade show for the cleaning and hygiene industries

With hygiene and sanitisation now a top priority for all sectors, Middle East Cleaning Technology Week 2022 takes a fresh look at the challenges, opportunities and future of the cleaning, laundry and car wash industries, encompassing Clean Middle East Expo, Gulf Laundrex presented by Texcare and Gulf Car Wash Car Care Expo.

Co-located with Light Middle East and SPS Automation Middle East, the collaboration provides a fundamental platform for facilities management. Buildings are now expected to meet new levels of hygiene, safety and cleanliness because of COVID-19 and to safeguard against future risks, making it essential for facilities and building management.

With the support of government and industry associations, the revised show programme provides more value for visitors and exhibitors, with topical content discussed at the 3-day conference, and further learning opportunities via workshops and accredited trainings.
