  • Premiere of the new platform experience.science.future.
  • 29 percent increase in visitor numbers
  • Compelling topics: diversification of water supply, e-waste and SDGs

9.633 trade visitors and 311 exhibitors—these are the record figures for the seventh edition of IFAT India 2019, which ended on October 18, 2019 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre (BEC) in Mumbai. At the top of the agenda of India's leading environmental technology fair was the question of how technology and innovation can lead the change towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The exhibition also focused on solutions for developing sustainable waste management and modernizing the environmental infrastructure.

Stefan Rummel, Managing Director of Messe München, draws a positive conclusion: “The visitor numbers at IFAT India have continued to grow further this year. The increase of 29 percent underlines that the show has once again proved to be the most important solution platform for India's pressing environmental challenges.” Most visitors—97 percent—came from India. Germany, China, Indonesia, South Korea and Austria (in this order) were among the top visitor countries.

In terms of exhibitors, international participation jumped by over 30 percent, underlining the growing demand on the subcontinent. With a record participation from 23 countries, it was the most international IFAT India ever with a first-time pavilion from Canada. Bhupinder Singh, Managing Director of Messe Muenchen India: “IFAT India 2019 brought together national and international companies like no other event in the country. It pooled know-how and technologies from across the world in one place with the aim to jointly and sustainably advance the development of India.”
