IFAT CHINA and EPTEE + CWS to cooperate in 2010
• Dates: 5 to 7 May 2010 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre
• Leading platform for the environmental industry in China and Asia
Messe München International (MMI), the organizer of IFAT CHINA, and Shanghai ZM International Exhibition Co., Ltd., organizer of EPTEE + CWS, Show for Water, Air, Waste, Energy and Recycling, are planning a joint event in 2010 – IFAT CHINA + EPTEE + CWS. As part of this cooperation, there are also new joint dates, with IFAT CHINA being moved just one day: IFAT CHINA + EPTEE + CWS will take place from 5 to 7 May 2010 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).
IFAT CHINA, International Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Refuse, Recycling and Natural Energy Sources, attracted 362 exhibitors and over 10,500 visitors for the last event in 2008. The proportion of exhibitors from outside China was again very high, at over 50 percent. In 2009 EPTEE + CWS, Show for Water, Air, Waste, Energy and Recycling, a strong national trade fair, hosted a total of 756 exhibitors and over 32,000 visitors. As such, these two events complement each other very well, both in terms of exhibitor and visitor profiles.
IFAT CHINA was successfully launched in Shanghai in 2004 by MMI, the organizer of IFAT in Munich, Germany, the leading international trade fair for environmental solutions worldwide. "IFAT CHINA and EPTEE + CWS are two strong trade fairs for environmental technology, joining forces in China for the national and for international markets. Now that these two fairs are collaborating, exhibitors and visitors of both will gain access to an even wider range of promising business opportunities, all gathered together under one roof. Through this cooperation, IFAT CHINA + EPTEE + CWS will be the leading platform for the sector in the Asian region," said Eugen Egetenmeir, Member of the Management Board of Messe München International.
Mr. Jiang Gang, General Manager of Shanghai ZM International Exhibition Co., Ltd, expressed that “the collaboration of IFAT CHINA and EPTEE + CWS will create a perfect platform for domestic and international environmental protection enterprises to exchange leading edge know-how in the sector and grab exciting opportunities in this fast developing market. This cooperation will definitely create a strong driving force for the development of the environmental protection industry in China. Relying on the rich market exploration experience and successful show organization history of MMI and ZM, IFAT CHINA + EPTEE + CWS is sure to make a historic breakthrough in terms of exhibition scale, quality, service, and not least exhibitor and visitor numbers. We believe that with this joint effort of all parties, IFAT CHINA + EPTEE + CWS will become one of the grandest shows in the global environmental protection industry.”
