The associations also present themselves to the visitors in Hall 3.2 at stand 209.

The trend in our businesses, evident for a number of years, of an increase in the number of people required to pay social insurance contributions, appears to have levelled off and is a result, for example, of more so-called daytime cleaning, which takes place during the customers’ operating and wor- king times. As expected, this trend will also be refl ected among the exhibitors at CMS, and some of the headings in this context include low-noise machinery and fl exibly deployable cleaning equipment.
