  • German Pavilion in Hall 4

Roundabout 150 exhibitors participated in the fair which was held from September 12 - 14, 2017 and presented their products and services to an interested expert audience.
Messe München decided not to combine the second IFAT Africa along with the construction machinery fair. The strategy worked out- numerous visitors and young talents visited the fair to receive an update on and discuss environmental technologies. The exhibition was accompanied by an informative congress. The lectures were well attended by an interested audience, the discussions were lively and the audience was thoroughly pleased with the program. The sessions covered a full range of topics from the basis sanitary provision to high-tech products and technics.

At the German Pavilion, DWA informed the visitors on all inquiries concerning environmental issues. 20 German exhibitors presented themselves at the joint booth and were very pleased with the expert audience.

The DWA-University Challenge was a full success. Three university teams competed against each other and proved their skills and knowledge during different tasks. The team from Tshwane University of Technology won the competition and  were invited to the World University Challenge at IFAT Munich/ Germany, which took place from May 14-18, 2018.

Furthermore, DWA was involved in the Young Professionals Forum. The YPF is a platform, aimed to provide young professionals with all relevant career information. The hall was packed with people; the discussions were lively and informative and ended up with numerous follow-up conversations with potential employers and start-ups.

We look forward to seeing you at IFAT Africa.
