The GreenTec Awards and Messe München International are entering into a partnership. For the first time ever, the GreenTec Awards will be presented at IFAT, the world’s largest trade fair for environmental technology, in 2014. The award ceremony is being held at the Internationales Congress Center (ICM) on Sunday, May 4, 2014, i.e. the evening before the fair begins. Both partners see this collaboration as an enhancement that adds value for everyone involved.

Marco Voigt, Initiator of the GreenTec Awards: “Messe München International and the trade fair IFAT in particular are the perfect framework for our event. The show gives us a suitable context with regard to content and allows us to reach the right target group – one that is interested in and committed to innovative environmental technology.”

Eugen Egetenmeir, Managing Director of Messe München International, has a very positive opinion about this collaboration: “We are pleased to be hosting the GreenTec Awards as part of IFAT in Munich. The awards link the topics of environmental technology, sustainability and resource conservation to a positive image. Due to their social and political focus, they also help to further develop and strengthen the IFAT brand.” Dr. Johannes F. Kirchhoff, Chairman of the IFAT Technical Advisory Board, is certain that “given their unique combination of technical know-how and entertainment, the GreenTec Awards are the perfect way to open IFAT. They bring together protagonists from the widest variety of sectors, i.e. from industry, politics, society and the media. It is a platform with a unique network and one where exhibitors and customers can communicate.”
