The COVID-19 pandemic is having a massive impact, and the global environmental technology industry is no exception. In consultation with the Executive Board of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board and the conceptual partners of IFAT, Messe München conducted a survey among IFAT exhibitors, revealing that most respondents are against holding IFAT from September 7 to 11, 2020.
Holding IFAT at the planned time would be unacceptable, not only for Messe München but also for the trade fair participants. In addition, according to the latest announcements, major events must not be held until the end of August 2020. In order to provide all customers with a reliable basis for planning and in close consultation with the Executive Board of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Council, IFAT 2020 has been cancelled. The next edition of IFAT will be IFAT 2022, which will take place from May 30 to June 3, 2022.
