Record Number of Exhibitors Slated for IFAT ENTSORGA 2010

Still a few weeks away, IFAT ENTSORGA 2010 in Munich runs Sept. 13-17, but as of July, the fair is already reporting an extremely large number of exhibitors: More than 2,620 companies from more than 44 countries have already registered for the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Waste and Raw Materials Management. That is an increase compared to the last time that the fair was held (2,605 exhibitors from 41 countries), even at this early point in time. Now it is also clear that IFAT ENTSORGA will occupy one more hall than IFAT 2008.

The response, especially among foreign exhibitors, who currently account for 37 percent of exhibitors (compared to 33 percent in 2008), has been particularly positive. This trend is also confirmed by demand for joint stands for contingents of international exhibitors: So far 14 countries including Austria, Belgium, China, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Great Britain, Korea, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United States have registered joint exhibits at IFAT ENTSORGA – not to mention several joint exhibits from organizations in Germany.

Like the 2008 fair, there will also be a joint exhibit sponsored by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). Twelve new and innovative companies will present their products and technologies to a broad-based audience of industry professionals on a good 250 sq m of exhibition space.

For the second time, the so-called Research & Education Area will also be part of the fair. Twenty-four colleges and universities will present their innovations and research results on some 400 sq m of exhibition space.
