Feb 14 2023
Singapore International Water Week Pte Ltd (SIPL) and Messe München’s wholly owned subsidiary in Singapore, MMI Asia Pte. Ltd. (MMI Asia), have announced a long-term, ten-year agreement to organize the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) Water Expo, one of the global premier water events.
A cornerstone of SIWW, the Water Expo, is the pre-eminent marketplace for the latest urban water technologies, innovation, and solutions for municipal and industrial water users in Southeast Asia. Under this ten-year agreement from 2023 to 2032, MMI Asia will organize five editions of the SIWW Water Expo and support SIPL in developing high-quality content at the show, tapping into the significant influence of the world’s largest and leading environmental technology platform IFAT.
SIPL’s Managing Director, Ryan Yuen, said: “We are pleased to partner with Messe München who brings a unique value proposition that complements our long-term vision for SIWW. Through the IFAT global network, we look forward to reaching a wider international audience, creating more business opportunities, and showcasing innovative water solutions and products to water agencies and the industry. MMI Asia will also work with us to expand SIWW into new growth areas, such as costal protection, decarbonization and digitalization, to fortify our position as a leading global event on water innovation and climate action.”
International business is a driving force for Messe München. For years, the company has been successfully expanding its portfolio around strong leading trade fairs worldwide. “As part of our strategic orientation, we are also continuously expanding the company in Singapore and developing our event formats further. The new cooperation with SIWW represents an important milestone in this strategy,” said the two CEOs of Messe München, Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer and Stefan Rummel. “Our subsidiary MMI Asia with its local presence in Singapore plays an important role in driving Messe München’s internationalization course in Southeast Asia, which the latest success proves.”
In addition to organizing the SIWW Water Expo, MMI Asia and its partner, MP Singapore, will also be providing event management services for SIWW Spotlight 2023 and SIWW 2024 to deliver a seamless delegate experience for the two events.
Katharina Schlegel, Exhibition Director IFAT abroad, elaborated: “This cooperation is another significant part in the global IFAT network, which will now be represented through SIWW in the increasingly important region of Southeast Asia. As the gateway to Southeast Asia, Singapore and SIWW will complement our four IFAT trade fairs in China, such as IE expo China. I am convinced that there will be immense synergy effects here for the Asian region, and the IFAT network in general will also benefit from this in the short and medium term.”
