IFAT Munich rescheduled for September

12.03.2020 − 

IFAT organisers, Messe München, decided Wednesday night that the trade fair will be postponed and will not go ahead as scheduled from 4 to 8 May. The event, among the largest gatherings for the global environmental services and technologies industry, is now to run from 7 to 11 September in Munich, Germany. Recycling and waste management insiders tell EUWID that industry organisations, among them the German waste management association BDE, were informing their members of the change.

The spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Europe has already been responsible for the cancellation or postponement of numerous trade fairs and public gatherings. The waste management and recycling industries are no exception here.
