what's new in this event edition

What is new for IFAT 2020

A new show dedicated to road construction premiered during the most recent IFAT Munich. Its goal was to engage companies implementing sustainable practices and energy-efficiency measures. 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 2020 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 scheduled to take place in May 2020, but the situation related to the COVID-19 prompted the organisers to delay the event. The IFAT 2020 new dates are 7 - 11 September.
