IFAT Africa strengthens networking with the environment sector

• Second IFAT Africa in Johannesburg from September 12 to 14, 2017
• Advisory board of industry experts formed

IFAT Africa plans to work even closer with the African environment market in the future: The trade fair for the segments water, sewage, waste and recycling now has support from an advisory board that will actively help shape its orientation in terms of both strategy and content. Christian Rocke, Exhibition Group Director IFAT, Messe München GmbH, states: "We are delighted to have gained environmental experts from the industry for IFAT Africa. With their practical experience and knowledge of the African market, we will be able to provide valuable suggestions which will offer advantages for exhibitors and visitors of the 2017 trade fair."

Among the members of the new advisory board are representatives of key companies and associations in the industry. These include, among others, Endress+Hauser (Pty) Ltd, WEC Projects (Pty) Ltd, Wilo Pumps SA and Xylem Water Solutions South Africa (Pty) Ltd. Alongside the trade fair, the forum program will also benefit from the expertise of the advisory board. At its premiere in 2015, the forum provided an integral part of the event.

The next IFAT Africa will be held at the Johannesburg Expo Centre (JEC) from September 12 to 14, 2017. Exhibitors can apply now
