May 20 2015 Read 2075 Times

Exhibitor allocation for IFAT Environmental Technology Forum Africa has begun and the organisers are very positive about the stand confirmations to date: The exhibitor target for this trade fair, premiering in Johannesburg from September 15 to 18, 2015 at the Johannesburg Expo Centre has already been exceeded. Among the applicants are key players in the sector, among them Endress + Hauser, Festo, Grundfos, Hammel Recylingtechnik GmbH, Netzsch Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd, Wilo Pumps SA (Pty) Ltd and Xylem Water Solutions.

Elaine Crewe, CEO of the organisers, MMI South Africa (Pty) Ltd, is delighted: "The level of response has exceeded our expectations. Now, due to special requirements by some exhibitors wishing to exhibit larger machinery, we have made some of the outdoor exhibition area available. This was of course not part of our original plan but is something we are very excited about. The fact that exhibitors are looking at large areas of exhibition space reinforces the strength of the IFAT global brand.”

The importance of an environmental technology trade fair for the African market, is highlighted by the strong support from national and international government ministries and industry associations: Alongside the Construction and Mining Equipment Suppliers’ Association (CONMESA), the supporters of this first edition of IFAT Environmental Technology Forum Africa include the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy, the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), the Geosynthetic Group of South Africa, the National Recycling Forum, the Southern African Alternative Energy Association and the German Engineering Federation (VDMA).

The organisers are expecting the trade fair to take up 4,000 square meters of exhibition space and attract around 2,000 visitors. IFAT Environmental Technology Forum Africa is co-located with BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA, Africa’s largest trade fair for construction and mining machinery.
