Taking place from October 9 to 11, 2014, at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, is the second edition of India’s Leading Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Refuse and Recycling. Details on how to apply for exhibition space at IFAT India are available now at: www.ifat-india.com. The deadline for receipt of applications is June 30, 2014.

"Increasing urbanisation and greater environmental consciousness in India are leading to a growing demand for modern environmental technologies and services", explained Gerhard Gerritzen, Deputy Managing Director of Messe München, in an interview with Project Vendor, one of India’s leading construction and engineering magazines. This demand, he said, would result in considerable investment in developing and improving environmental initiatives. Gerritzen added: “IFAT India brings together user and supplier both national and international from the industry in India all under one roof."

At the premiere of IFAT India last year, a total of 131 exhibitors from 17 countries showcased their solutions and products in environmental technology to 4,924 visitors. The ratings for the show were positive across the board: 88 percent of the exhibiting companies rated the event as "good to excellent"; among the visitors, 96 percent gave the same rating. On another point, again 88 percent of the exhibitors saw participation in the show as a competitive advantage for their company; 97 percent of the visitors shared this view in relation to their attendance. 99 percent of the exhibitors and 95 percent of the visitors said they would be happy to recommend the event to their colleagues and business partners.

"With IFAT India getting a perfect start, we are sure in the forthcoming years, IFAT India will grow in terms of the exhibition space, number of exhibitors and visitors", explained Gerritzen. "It will also add more segments as per the Indian market needs in the future."
