IFAT Munich in May: driving environmental and climate protection
More than 2,500 exhibitors from 50 countries registered so far. All exhibition halls and the outdoor area occupied.
The sustainable use of resources—and thus climate protection—is the major topic of IFAT Munich, which will be held from May 30 to June 3, 2022 at the exhibition center in Munich. International interest in the World's Leading Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Waste and Raw Materials Management remains strong. The global community needs environmental technologies— the trade show brings them to life and provides the network to address the greatest challenge of our time.
“Preparations for IFAT Munich are running at full speed, with all 18 exhibition halls and a large part of the outdoor area occupied. This is a very strong development, even compared to the record-breaking edition in 2018,” explains Stefan Rummel, Managing Director of Messe München. So far, some 2,500 exhibitors from more than 50 countries have registered, “and we continuously receive numerous further requests”.
Environmental, resource and climate protection is more urgent than ever in the minds of the global community, "and IFAT brings together the international decision-makers, experts and market players in one place to tackle the major challenges,” Rummel continues.
And: with the major international event IAA MOBILITY as well as the trade fairs EXPO REAL, productronica and TrendSet in January, Messe München has proven that successful trade fairs are possible under pandemic conditions. “In addition, experience shows that restrictions are relaxed in line with the pandemic situation in spring,” Rummel classifies the situation.
