Venice 2018

62nd International Congress

The 62nd International Congress of FIDEN took place from 27th until 30th of September 2018 in Venice, Italy.

Under the motto „Efficiency and Transparency – Building Cleaning in Upheaval" we talked about the effects the constant availability of data regarding our services entails for our suppliers and customers, and above all, for our own industry.

What will be the demands of customers the cleaning industry has to face? Transparent data as a basis for the awarding of contracts under the criteria of reduction of costs or quality improvement? How does our industry react and what technologies are being developed already?

In our discussion forum building services providers and manufacturers exchanged the experience they have made thus far. Will the transparency regarding services lead to savings for customers only? What benefit will it bring for building services providers? How can the new transparency be used for improving the industry’s own processes?

We too a look forward together with the conference participants to the latest information and had lively debates.

Alongside the Congress also this year we had an interesting and entertaining framework program which gave us the opportunity to explore Venice and its places of interest, and talk shop with other congress participants in a relaxed atmosphere.

In a work visit we learned about the particular needs regarding the cleaning and maintenance of the historic opera house “La Fenice“ and cleaning especially during and after floods.

Our hotel was located on the Lido island from where the hotel shuttle boat took us in a 10 minutes’ ride to the main island and its touristic sights.

In the Middle Ages, Venice was one of Europe’s major economic and political centers. The city is called the “Serenissima“ (the most serene), it is the city of lagoons and gondolas, abundant in tourist attractions, art and culture, the art capital of the 21st century. It is a dignified historic place for a congress whose motto is transformation.
