Textile rental services conference continues up-to date issues
Texcare Forum Russia is the annual meeting place for the Russian textile care industry. The organizers decided to extend the focus of the forum to the direction of professional cleaning. During two days three conferences were presented to the 321 participants of the Forum:"Modern tendencies of dry cleaning and laundry enterprises development", "Transition from In-House Cleaning to Outsourcing Cleaning Services in Moscow Schools" and "The main problems of workwear rental services development in food and automobile industry, health, care and service sectors". The purpose of the Forum is to develop a new sector of the Russian business –textile service field and to improve cleaning services and industrial laundry.
The sponsors of the conferences were leaders of the Russian textile care market: Request Group, Koblenz & Partner, Procter & Gamble, Texcarepro. All conferences were supported by the Moscow Government.
The Forum was opened on 8 October. The conference was devoted to the current challenges for the dry cleaning and laundry enterprises in Russia. Messe Frankfurt organised this conference in cooperation with the Association of Drycleaners and Launderers.
Nine top speakers from different fields of the industry shared their experience and current projects with the audience. In the limelight were issues of development of environmentally friendly technologies for the industry, legal support and protection of the interests of the enterprises of dry cleaning and laundry industry, and problems of training and professional development.
Parallel to the conference for drycleaners and launderers Texcare Forum presented the audience a new topic: "Transition from In-House Cleaning to Outsourcing Cleaning Services in Moscow Schools". Curated by the Department of Education of Moscow City the conference brought together more than 150 participants from cleaning and education sectors and drew attention to problems of cleaning services at Moscow Schools. Leading companies and schools in their discussions proved great relevance of the conference for both sides: participants and speakers.
The international conference entitled "The main problems of workwear rental services development in food and automobile industry, health, care and service sectors", was also a great success and was held on the second day of the Forum. Textile service in the segment of workwear clothing is quite new for the Russian market, but is developing intensively during the last 5 years. Speakers provided insights into trends and prospects, the current situation and market potentials of workwear rental services in the Russian regions.
The exhibition of the latest developments of the industry leaders attracted great interest among visitors of the Forum.
Texcare Forum is developing and continues its positive growth on the Russian market to become the leading meeting point for professionals of the industry. Once again Texcare Forum Russia has con¬firmed its reputation and brought together all Russian industry leaders and experts of dry cleaning, laundry, professional cleaning and workwear rental services.
