A high-caliber forum program will be addressing various trends, challenges, and solutions from water, sewage, refuse, and recycling sectors, bringing together public and private sector, solution providers, academics, practitioners, and decision-makers for three days of valuable knowledge sharing.
Highlights of the event also include focused masterclasses hosted by the Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) and Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa (IWMSA) the 3rd edition of the University Challenge, product demonstrations, and interactive corner.
IFAT Africa 2019 featured 172 exhibitors from 19 countries and over 3,300 visitors from across Africa, from countries including Botswana, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Swaziland, Tanzania, Tunisia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

“As an exhibitor, we have enjoyed the relaxed yet professional manner of interacting with the organizing team at Messe Muenchen South Africa before and during the event,” says Hennie Pretorius, Industry Manager, Water and Waste Water at Endress+Hauser.
He added that, “Our participation ensures high-quality attendance and good quality leads, which opens up the possibility for new business opportunities, and we are looking forward to being part of IFAT Africa 2021 and beyond.”
