The leading trade show for cleaning and hygiene!

CMS Berlin, the leading international trade fair for cleaning and hygiene, held a successful industry event at the Berlin Exhibition Centre in 2023. With a total of 421 exhibitors from 25 countries and a record attendance of around 21,000 visitors, the trade fair underlined its position as the central industry gathering for the entire cleaning industry.

The trade show is not only an opportunity to find out about the latest technological trends in the industry, but also an opportunity to exchange ideas with experts and present your own company internationally.

We look forward to welcoming you to CMS Berlin from 23 to 26 September 2025!

“Not only are we highly satisfied, together we are also quite proud that CMS Berlin continues to chase records. Sustainability and digitalisation proved to be a big topic for visitors in the halls, the Purus Innovation Award was of great interest not only to the industry itself, and the Practical Forum on our association’s stand was extremely well-attended. The cancellation of the last event due to the pandemic has not impacted the trade fair’s successful growth – which is proof of the dynamic nature, standing and robust concept of the fair.“

Thomas Dietrich, national guild master of the Federal Guild Association of the BIV

“CMS Berlin 2023 exceeded the expectations of VDMA members. Machine manufacturers were highly satisfied with their business results at the fair and are looking forward to the next CMS in 2025. Until then we are happy to continue working with Messe Berlin to ensure CMS 2025 will again be a major industry event for visitors from around the world.“

Frank Ulbricht, chairman of the Cleaning Systems Trade Association in the VDMA

“CMS Berlin was an outstanding success. Once again, the trade fair confirmed the importance of its role as the leading platform for the cleaning industry. The exhibitors in the IHO were highly satisfied with the many visitors, their quality and their growing international numbers.“

Markus Häfner, chairman of the Building Cleaning Department of the IHO

Europe's most successful industry platform for cleaning and hygiene. This is where the entire range of expertise met in 2023.

From 19 to 22 September 2023, the international cleaning trade show CMS Berlin offered a complete market overview of products, systems and processes for all commercial cleaning technology.
