Messe München Intl. Launches IFAT INDIA
To take place October 24 to 26, 2013, at the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre
As part of a reorientation of its global strategy, Messe München Intl. is further expanding its international network of events to include a new trade show in India for the environmental technology sector: The first IFAT INDIA will take place October 24 to 26, 2013, at the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre (Mumbai). The organizers of the event–Messe München and its subsidiary MMI India–are expecting the premiere of this Indian offshoot to attract around 100 exhibitors and 6,000 visitors, and to utilize 6,000 sq meters of exhibition space.
"The Indian market for environmental services is set to grow to a total volume of 3.2 billion euros by 2013. Increasing urbanization and greater environmental consciousness in India are leading to a growing demand for modern environmental technologies and services. This is what our new event is focusing on," said Eugen Egetenmeir, managing director of Messe München Intl.
Messe München already organizes two established events for the sector: IFAT ENTSORGA in Munich, the world’s largest environmental technology trade fair, and IE expo in Shanghai. IFAT INDIA now provides an additional international platform in an up-and-coming market.
