IFAT Postponed Until November


Coronavirus has hit IFAT with the huge waste and environmental exhibition being postponed until November.

IFAT: Latest Victim to Coronavirus

Due to the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Europe and based on the recommendations of the German Ministry of Health and the Bavarian State Government, Messe München feels compelled to postpone IFAT 2020. This measure has been taken in consultation with the Executive Board of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board, the conceptual partners and in an awareness of the organisers’ responsibility for the health of exhibitors and visitors. IFAT will now take place from September 7 to 11, 2020.

“Under the given circumstances, opening IFAT in May would not be justifiable towards our customers, in particular from a medical and economic perspective,” says Stefan Rummel, Managing Director of Messe München and responsible for IFAT. “Now, we are looking forward to hosting a successful IFAT 2020 in September jointly with the industry.”

Purchased tickets and redeemed vouchers will, of course, remain valid for the upcoming event.
