IFAT Munich in May: driving environmental and climate protection

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 2500 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 hasproven 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.

Associations and start-ups alike rely on IFAT Munich

In keeping with the established tradition, many national and international associations are actively involved in shaping the trade show program, be it as exhibitors, with special shows, live demonstrations, solution tours and lectures. The start-up area is more popular than ever: “It is highly exciting to see how much interest start-ups are showing in the fair. They urgently need access to the markets to bring their innovative solutions to the world,” explains Philipp Eisenmann, Exhibition Director IFAT Munich. “And in doing so, they precisely reflect the success factor of trade fairs and IFAT Munich: all key market players will meet face-to-face in one place, expand their network and promote their business success.”
