According to Messe München, these figures match the record level of 2018.

Thorsten Glauber, Bavarian State Minister for the Environment and Consumer Protection, was impressed by the sustainable, efficient and innovative solutions from HUBER on the very first day of the trade fair: ”With all these technical achievements, our environment, our nature, becomes a bit more valuable. Investment in the future and best environmental protection at the same time – at HUBER SE this combination is at home.“

Chief Sales Officer Rainer Köhler: ”many interested visitors from Germany and abroad”

Rainer Köhler, Chief Sales Officer of HUBER SE and member of the Executive Board of IFAT Munich:

”IFAT Munich 2024 was once again a very good platform for mutual exchange and to advance developments in various industries. The water and wastewater management, waste and recycling industries are very important for promoting recycling management and climate resilience. Water, energy, environment and climate are among the most important issues of our time. My personal impression of this year's IFAT is very positive: we at HUBER had many interested visitors from the areas relevant to us at our stand: Wastewater treatment plant operators, sewage plant managers, planners, engineering offices, representatives of municipalities and industry and many more from Germany and abroad.

We also had the honour of welcoming the Bavarian Minister of the Environment, Thorsten Glauber, to our stand. How impressed he was with our stand and the products on display – that was one of my personal highlights.“
