IFAT attracts two internationally sought-after guests for panel discussion

The organiser of IFAT Munich, taking place in the Munich exhibition halls from May 13 to 17, 2024, has announced they have secured two internationally sought-after guests for the panel discussion – “Future of Living – Adapting to the results of climate change”.

Star architect Daniel Libeskind, whose narrative design language is particularly influential in cultural institutions worldwide, and Ian Goldin, Professor of Globalization and Development at Oxford University, and founding director of the world-leading Oxford Martin School research group, will both participate on the final day of the event.

IFAT is generally considered as the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management, attracting around 3,000 exhibitors from almost 60 countries, with an anticipated visitor attendance figure of 120,000 across five days.

“More than ever, IFAT Munich is seen as the central solution platform and knowledge hub for all aspects of the circular economy,” says Stefan Rummel, CEO of Messe München GmbH. “In addition to the many national and international experts, we also welcome many high-ranking politicians to IFAT Munich who are looking for an exchange with the industry.”

The trade fair will be opened by Federal Environment Minister Steffi Lemke and the Bavarian State Minister for the Environment and Consumer Protection, Torsten Glauber.

In addition to the varied supporting program, IFAT Munich 2024 will once again offer live demonstrations, practical days, and the Truck in Action Show. Visitors can also take advantage of more than 25 guided solution tours, with visits to several stands that offer stimulus and concrete solutions for specific topics.
