IFAT 2022 has come to an end and, after four years, has once again reaffirmed its prestige as the world’s leading trade fair for water, wastewater, waste and raw materials management. A total of 3,305 exhibitors from 58 countries and 142,472 visitors from 162 countries attended IFAT this year.
This year CWP shared a stand with 5 partners: Bluephage, Elvis Indy Water, Hydrens, Keiken and Inloc Robotics. Other partners, such as ITC, Createch360, Unex and Sigmadaf clarifiers, also participated as exhibitors, but with their own stand. ACCIÓ was also present at the fair, and collaborated with the CWP.
During these five days of the fair, the CWP has been able to meet with other clusters and consolidate collaborations that have been going on for years, such as with The Water Council, the American water cluster based in Milwaukee, Water Alliance, the cluster of the Netherlands and Singapore Water Association, or to meet the Cluster H2O, a new Belgian cluster, which has been created only two months ago.
Also thanks to the Blues project, some CWP members have been able to access financial support and a shared agenda together with other PIMES of the l France Water Team and the Water Cluster Finland, clusters with which we already collaborate in other actions, such as the Water Smart Territories.
This edition has been a great success, our members have been able to network with international companies and look for opportunities in other markets, there is no doubt that in the next edition, the CWP will repeat with all those companies that want to participate.
