This year, Ifat Entsorga, which takes place at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre from 13 to 17 September 2010, is bigger than ever: Over 2,700 exhibitors from 45 countries (2008: 2,605 exhibitors from 41 countries) will be presenting their innovations and technology solutions to the trade visitors on the five days of the fair. 37 % of the exhibitors are international, i.e. come from outside Germany. This represents a rise of approximately 5 % as compared to the previous event. An increase is also seen in the amount of exhibition space.
The response, especially among foreign exhibitors 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 organisations in Germany.
Like the 2008 fair, there will also be a joint exhibit sponsored by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). A total of twelve new and innovative companies will present their products and technologies to a broad-based audience of industry professionals on a good 250 m2 of exhibition space.
For the second time, the so-called Research & Education Area will also be part of the fair. A total of 24 colleges and universities will present their innovations and research results on some 400 m2 of exhibition space.
