IFAT India is India's leading trade fair for water, waste water, waste and recycling. The trade show provided an enormous platform to industry experts, policy makers and business leaders to discuss regional strategies on numerous environmental challenges and seek solutions through formal interactions.

IFAT India 2017 was a three- day trade show which saw over 184 participants from 18 countries. Some of the top participants included market leaders like L&T, Thermax, Ion Exchange, Ramky, Aqseptance Group, Endress+Hauser, Excel, Kirloskar Brothers, Kishor Pumps, Tata Projects, Wilo, Siemens, Lanxess, Astral Poly, Xylem, CRI Pumps, LG Chem, Wipro Water and many more.

On the conclusion of IFAT India 2017, Mr Bhupinder Singh, CEO of Messe Muenchen India, said, “India has an immense potential for environmental protection and waste management. Scarce water resources, rapid industrialization, extensive agriculture and enormous waste volumes pose a great challenge to the country. Thus, the 5th edition of IFAT India focussed on the latest environmental issues and their solutions. IFAT India 2017 also provided a platform for all the industry players, associations and government representatives, to connect through formal interactions. We saw a great response from national and international participants and we hope to keep delivering a better trade show every year.”
