Several thousand trade fair guests visit Wilo’s booth in Munich

Munich. The Wilo Group can look back on a successful IFAT 2024. For five days, the multinational technology group presented its sustainable and future-proof water and sewage solutions to around 142,000 visitors from almost 170 countries and regions. The environmental technology provider Abionik, which is part of the Wilo Group, also welcomed trade fair guests at its booth just a few hundred metres away.

“Water is the most important and existential resource in the world. The products, systems and solutions on display at IFAT are an expression of our ambition to significantly improve access to this resource globally”, explains Oliver Hermes, President & CEO of the Wilo Group. “Access to clean water is a human right recognised by the United Nations for good reason.”

“At this year’s IFAT, as always, we had numerous exciting discussions with customers. At the same time, we naturally used IFAT to engage in detailed talks with our partners from politics, associations and science and to network with them even more extensively”, adds Dr Patrick Niehr, Member of the Executive Board and Chief Change Officer (CCO) of the Wilo Group.

In total, Wilo counted several thousand visitors over the five days of the trade fair. More than 600 people from 31 countries took part in the booth tour. When planning for the world’s leading trade fair in Munich, Wilo emphasised a sustainable booth concept from the outset. The trade fair company rewarded the technology group for its efforts with the “Go Green Pioneer” award.

Every two years, industry experts from all over the world meet at IFAT Munich, the largest trade fair for the water, sewage, recycling and municipal technology sectors. In addition to IFAT Munich, the IFAT network also includes trade fairs in China, India, South Africa, Brazil, and Turkey.
