A number of the themes for presentations during the five-day 19th World Federation of Building Service Contractor (WFBSC) International Congress, to be held in Curitiba on 10-14 October, have been announced. The meeting is one of the top conferences in the cleaning and hygiene industry and will assemble about 1000 delegates, who may also take part in the 22nd Regional Higiexpo - Hygiene, Cleaning and Maintenance Products and Services Exhibition, and the 23rd ENEAC - National Meeting of the Cleaning and Maintenance Companies. The three meetings will take place simultaneously, assembling a total of about 5000 delegates.
The presentations will focus on key issues to contractors such as management, administration, sustainability and laws, to be approached in the following plenary sessions: family succession in multi-generational family businesses; why take part in trade exhibitions?; the experience of the specialised service outsourcing chamber within the scope of the Ministry of Work and Employment; risk management by effective infection control and food safety; green and sustainable: how cleaning contractors can meet the demands of a changing world; multi-services: challenges and opportunities in the Brazilian market; the 21st century socio-environmental paradigm and labour laws; smart application in cleaning: how a sustainable approach will increase productivity for BSC; the client´s vision of cleaning services and the challenges of service contractors; the rights of contractors under government contracts; and cleaning as an absolute value.
WFBSC president, Adonai Aires de Arruda, said: “Being in Curitiba in October means being in contact with the latest in our industry worldwide. In addition to the plenary sessions focusing on momentous themes and fostering networking with people from the world over, regional meetings will also be very productive, since we will have important attendees coming to Brazil to know our market.”
