World's leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management

Bild Messe München Eingang West

Congratulations - 50 Years of IFAT!

In 1966 an international conference with 1400 participants was carried out by the DWA (at that time ATV) in Munich. An accompanying specialised exhibition "Internationale Fachausstellung Abwassertechnik" (International Specialised Exhibition for Sewage Technology) took place - the founding of IFAT. That exhibition became the world's leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management.
