The Covid-19 pandemic has a massive impact – also on the global environmental technology industry. In consultation with the Executive Board of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board and the conceptual partners of Ifat, Messe München conducted a survey among the Ifat exhibitors, revealing that most respondents are against holding Ifat from September 7 to 11, 2020. Hence, at the planned time it 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 a reliable basis for planning and in close consultation with the Executive Board of the Exhibitors‘ Advisory Council, Ifat now is canceled for this year.

The fair had already been postponed from May to September. “We therefore cancel the alternative date with a heavy heart. The next Ifat will take place from May 30 to June 3, 2022,” says Stefan Rummel, Managing Director of Messe München. Even in this turbulent time, Messe München and the Ifat team see themselves as partners of the industry: “We will continue to develop and digitally complement our platform in order to add fresh impetus to the environmental industry – both at our home base in Munich and internationally.”

Clear opinion of the industry

The decision is based on intensive discussions with industry associations, partners and many exhibitors from all segments. The survey among all exhibitors registered at the fair was carried out online in the week after Easter. 1,933 exhibitor representatives from all over the world took part. 64 % said that they think it was unjustifiable to hold Ifat in September 2020 due to the coronavirus crisis (737 respondents) or that they would like to pause due to low expectations of the fair’s success (507 respondents). 85 % percent of those surveyed do not expect the environmental technology sector to recover economically before the first half of 2021.
