IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management is further expanding its international network. From 2018, it will be a strategic partner to FENASAN in São Paulo, Brazil’s biggest trade fair for water technologies, which takes place every autumn in the Expo Center Norte.
Stefan Rummel, Managing Director of Messe München, is convinced: “The latest shortfalls in the water supply have shown how important efficient environmental technologies and the relevant expertise are in Brazil. This is where international knowledge transfer is needed and where we can make an important contribution through IFAT.”
The agreement therefore focuses on expert consultancy. Together with its numerous partner associations, IFAT will organize various events including a podium discussion at FENASAN 2018 and will offer support when planning the congress which will take place at the same time. Another aim of the partnership is to internationalize the event.
For Olavo Sachs, President of the AESabesp association and organizer of FENASAN, the new partnership offers numerous benefits for his trade fair: “IFAT has a wealth of experience when it comes to organizing leading environmental technology trade fairs and a reputation which is synonymous with professionalism and quality throughout the world. With its help, we will be able to further develop FENASAN on a conceptual and an international level.”
IFAT already has five subsidiary events in China, India, South Africa and Turkey and constitutes the world’s biggest network for environmental technologies. For IFAT, the partnership with FENASAN is its first step into the South American market.
