Messe München’s subsidiary for Southeast Asia—MMI Asia—has taken over ownership of the Asia Climate Forum (ACF), Southeast Asia’s leading platform for weather forecasting, meteorological equipment, flood prevention and mitigation, and air quality control and management. With its three distinct exhibitions—InterMET, InterFLOOD and InterAIR—ACF has provided a focal point for the industry since 2015.
Asia Climate Forum (ACF) addresses some of the most important environmental topics that the industry, governments and society have to tackle. The event facilitates the industry to enhance, develop and deploy world-leading solutions, technologies, and best practices in Southeast Asia. “We commit to investing in the show and further the cause of resolving climate issues in the world”, says Michael Wilton, General Manager and Director of MMI Asia Pte. Ltd. “The recent COP26 meetings highlighted a global effort to address this crisis—international collaboration and partnerships are critical to establish plans and to take action against the consequences of climate change. Not least with the Singapore government emphasizing the urgency to tackle global warming and rising sea levels by a climate strategy.”
The previous organizers Media Generation Ventures Ltd (MGV) will continue to work on the event as consultants to MMI Asia and ensure a smooth transition and consistency for the show and its stakeholders.
ACF will add to Messe München’s global portfolio of events in the environmental sector, which includes IFAT Munich, the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Waste and Raw Materials Management, IFAT India, IFAT Eurasia, IFAT Africa and the IE expo series in China. The 2022 edition will be co-located with the CleanEnviro Summit Singapore (CESG) and the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW).
