The trade show will have more international exhibitors than before
At IFAT, the 15th International Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Refuse & Recycling, which takes place from May 5 to 9, 2008, in Munich, Germany, the visitors can look forward to an impressive range of innovative solutions and new technology for implementing practical, cost-efficient solutions, plus a broad spectrum of services for the sector.
This environmental trade fair will be even bigger in 2008 than at the last event in 2005. In 2008, the exhibition space will expand to 192,000 sq m, which is 22,000 sq m more than IFAT 2005, representing an increase of 13%.
An even bigger rise has been noted in the space booked by international exhibitors. This has risen by 18%.
IFAT is an important trade fair for the environment and waste disposal. With the expansion of the theme of energy generation from waste products, the subject of biogas will move even more into the spotlight. The fair is thus responding to current trends in the market and underlining its role as a leading international event for the sector.
The attractions at IFAT 2008 are rounded off with a program of trade conferences, symposiums and forums exploring new directions for the future, and events focusing on flood protection and disaster prevention and control. In the forums, exhibitors and associations will be putting on lectures and panel discussions on current product developments, trends and market analyses. These events are an excellent opportunity for gathering new ideas, updating knowledge and forging new business contacts.
