"Increasing urbanization and greater environmental consciousness in India are leading to a growing demand for modern environmental technologies and services," said Gerhard Gerritzen, deputy managing director of Messe München, in an interview with Project Vendor, one of India’s leading construction and engineering magazines. This demand, he said, would result in considerable investment in developing and improving environmental initiatives. Gerritzen added: “IFAT India brings together user and supplier both national and international from the industry in India all under one roof."
At the premiere of IFAT India last year, a total of 131 exhibitors from 17 countries showcased their solutions and products in environmental technology to 4,924 visitors. The ratings for the show were positive across the board: 88% of the exhibiting companies rated the event as "good to excellent"; among the visitors, 96% gave the same rating. On another point, again 88% of the exhibitors saw participation in the show as a competitive advantage for their company; 97% of the visitors shared this view in relation to their attendance. Ninety-nine percent of the exhibitors and 95% of the visitors said they would be happy to recommend the event to their colleagues and business partners.
"With IFAT India getting a perfect start, we are sure in the forthcoming years, IFAT India will grow in terms of the exhibition space, number of exhibitors and visitors," Gerritzen said. "It will also add more segments as per the Indian market needs in the future."
