IFE’s first time at IFAT Eurasia
For the first time, the IFE Aufbereitungstechnik was represented at the IFAT Eurasia in Istanbul. Eurasia’s Leading Trade Fair for Environmental Technologies took place from February 16th to 18th and was a meeting point for more than 11.300 representatives of the environmental sector from more than 70 countries. Around 230 exhibitors from all over the world showcased the latest solutions and products for the environmental sector on an exhibition space of 17.000 m².
Together with our Turkish sales partner Enver Köse, the IFE Aufbereitungstechnik, represented by Christian Haas, presented itself at the Austrian group stand of the WKO. On this occasion, compliments to the Austrian Economic Chamber for the excellent organization.
Compared to similar trade fairs in the past, there were significant differences: The trade fair visitors are more enlightened and have more detailed knowledge about the environmental sector. This resulted in more specific inquiries than in previous years.
However, due to the politically uncertain situation, an inhibited willingness for investment decisions is also apparent.
Nevertheless, visitors are encouraged to drive and develop the recycling industry. The IFAT Eurasia 2017 again demonstrated the continuing importance of Turkey as a hub for the environmental sector in the Eurasian Region.
