This will be followed by a live Q&A with the managing directors of the associations, exclusively for interested journalists in the digital CMS PLUS Press Café.
The Press Café can be found on the CMS PLUS home page in the Virtual Café section on September 21. Here you can ask your questions live. Please note that registration on the platform is required for participation.

Starting in January 2022, the industry's trend topics will be highlighted in theme weeks on a quarterly basis. The first topic will be sustainability, followed by training and recruiting, mobility cleaning and digitalization. The complete schedule of topics up to CMS Berlin 2023 can be found online.
What can you expect on our stages in September?
Participants can look forward to well-known names and current topics from the industry such as Stephan Schwarz, Managing Partner GRG Services Berlin GmbH & Co. KG on the subject of "Daytime Cleaning" or Martin Lutz, Managing Director at FIGR Forschungs- und Prüfinstitut für Facility Management GmbH, with the question "How clean does it have to be?".
Other representatives of facility services, cleaning industry and housekeeping, as well as our associations, will be offering exciting and entertaining panel discussions to an audience hungry for information. Tune in!
