New Municipal Equipment Expo Canada for public authorities

Mar. 24, 2015

Messe Frankfurt constantly expanding its network of international environmental-technology trade fairs

To be held concurrently with Waste & Recycling Expo Canada for the first time Municipal Equipment Expo Canada is aimed at decision makers from public authorities and provides in-depth information about modern, sustainable urban development. At the trade fair, exhibitors present their products and services for water and sewage management, parks, fleets, flood protection, civil engineering, emergency services, road construction and repairs, and transportation. With this extensive range, the new fair will supplement the spectrum of products to be seen at Waste & Recycling Expo Canada, the country's most important event for waste and recycling management. Messe Frankfurt expects over 300 exhibitors to take part in the two fairs in Montreal from September 4-5, 2015. The Canadian duo will be held in Montreal and Toronto in alternate years.

The new event in Canada brings the number of trade fairs for environmental technology organised by Messe Frankfurt around the globe to eight. Explaining the growing significance of the 'Environmental Technology' Business Unit, Iris Jeglitza-Moshage, Senior Vice President, Messe Frankfurt Exhibition, says, "With our growing range of trade fairs for the dynamic environmental-technology sector, we bring together political decision makers, investors and technology manufacturers, and pave the way for the sustainable development of these countries." The rapidly expanding regions of the world, especially India, China and Africa, will face major challenges over the coming years, to provide their growing populations with reliable access to the natural resources of water, energy, land and air.

As one of China's most important trade fairs for the water-management sector, Water Expo China in Beijing from November 18-20, 2015 is characterized by an extensive range of products and services and multifarious networking opportunities. The products on show range from pumps, seals, pipes, irrigation and desalination systems, via modern landscape architecture in relation to cities and water, to equipment for testing water quality, inflatable rubber dams and drain-pipe repairs. The trade fair regularly features international pavilions with Denmark, the USA, Korea and Japan being represented last year.

The use of building-related solar energy is the thematic focal point of Building Solar China, one of the building-technology trade fairs organised by Messe Frankfurt in China under the motto 'Intelligent Green Building.'

Eco Expo Asia is one of the region's most important environmental fairs with a product spectrum ranging from modern environmental management to sustainable products for building and life in general. The next edition of the trade fair, which is a joint venture of Messe Frankfurt and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council in cooperation with the Environment Bureau, The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, will be held in Hong Kong from October 28-31, 2015.

In the aspiring Indian market, the Watertech, Wastetech and Cleantech trio of fairs in New Delhi is distinguished by an extensive spectrum of products and services and the support of official bodies. The next edition opens its doors from September 2-4, 2015.
