Even closer cooperation between Messe München and the GreenTec Awards

April 23, 2015

Cooperation extended on these prestigious environmental and business awards

In 2016 and 2018, the GreenTec Awards will again be presented in a gala ceremony at the start of IFAT, the world´s leading environmental technology show, in Munich

In 2015 and 2017, Messe München to be a platinum sponsor in Berlin


Munich—It is Europe’s most prestigious prize for environmental technology and business: The GreenTec Awards. In 2014, the presentation ceremony for these awards formed the opening gala to IFAT, the world’s leading exhibition for environmental technology. This successful cooperation is now being continued: IFAT takes place every two years, and at these events (2016 and 2018) the GreenTec Awards will be presented in Munich. In the intervening years—2015 and 2017—the awards will be presented in Berlin, where Messe München will be acting as a platinum sponsor.

"For Messe München sustainability has been a core theme for many years," commented Klaus Dittrich, Chairman & CEO of Messe München, "Back in the 1990s sustainability was already a key criterion in the design and construction of our own exhibition center. Since then, this venue has been a model for other such facilities around the world. Also, the subject of sustainability is reflected in several of the events in our portfolio, but above all of course in the world´s leading environmental technology trade fair, IFAT. The philosophy of the GreenTec Awards, and in particular the achievements of the winners, just fit very well with our company and the standards upheld at IFAT."

Marco Voigt, one of the initiators of the GreenTec Awards, is also pleased with this partnership: "IFAT is the optimum event at which to present the GreenTec Awards. It is the right context for us, as regards content, and it is a place where we can reach out directly to an international target audience that is interested in actively promoting innovative environmental technologies."

On May 29 this year the 2015 GreenTec Awards will be awarded in the Tempodrom in Berlin. In 2016, there will again be a gala award ceremony to kick off IFAT, which takes place from May 30 to June 3, 2016 at the Messe München exhibition center.
