What makes it special

The intense expertise exchange during IFAT 2022 is not to be missed by professionals willing to stay ahead of the curve. It holds so much promise – more exhibitors will partake in the expo, new companies and projects will be presented, progressive technologies and processes will be demonstrated live. The demonstrations will include innovations in drinking water treatment, soil collapse protection, etc. IFAT Munich will provide answers to questions regarding the market as well as information on best practices, changes to legislation and other crucial developments.

What is new for IFAT 2022

A new show dedicated to road construction premiered during the most recent IFAT Munich. Covering the entire process chain in road construction, the special show addressed topics like digitalisation, resource effectiveness, research and technology transfer. It will return at IFAT 2022 with the novelties in this field. The environmental sector is on the rise and IFAT is evolving with it. The exhibition is in the course of steady expansion, and the next edition will prove it.

The next IFAT Munich was originally supposed to take place in May 2020 and was then postponed to September, but the situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic ultimately prompted the organisers to cancel the event. The next edition is IFAT 2022, scheduled for 30 May to 3 June.
