Technology disruption essential for Middle East FM, cleaning sectors
Clean Middle East Expo 2019 organisers say sectors set for 'major disruption' amid growing demand for longer life-cycles
Facilities management (FM) experts have described technology as an “essential element” for the future of the industry, which will heavily feature the use of robotics, multitasking machines, and eco-friendly alternatives.
The prediction has been made ahead of Clean Middle East Expo 2019, which is set to take place at Dubai World Trade Centre on 15-17 October as part of Middle East Cleaning Technology Week.
Project manager of the expo, Abhishek Dalal, said the Middle East’s cleaning sector was set for a “major disruption”.
He added: “Massive change is under way as end-users look for longer equipment life cycles, improved filtration systems, heightened reliability, and lower operating costs to achieve optimum cleaning at improved cost-life cycle value.
“Given the renewed emphasis on power and water conservation, new systems to save on energy and utilities while seeking out recycling and intelligent waste initiatives will be high on potential inventories.”
