The International Green Week
Since 1926 - one of a kind
The 88th (97 years) International Green Week (short IGW) will take place in January 2023. Founded in Berlin in the Golden 20s (1926), IGW is a one-of-a-kind international exhibition of the food, agriculture and gardening industries.
Popular with consumers and trade visitors
IGW is the origin of the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA). This is where over 70 international ministries and food producers meet – their displays reveal the fascinating world of the food and beverage industries.
Where tradition and future meet
Everyone who has been around since 1926 knows how traditions are maintained, as well as how innovations are created in order to ensure continuity. Renewable resources, organic agriculture, gardening and the future of rural development continue to gain importance at International Green Week. So come by and visit us in January, and enjoy Green Week.
We’re looking forward to your visit!
January’s media event
January in Berlin can be very cold, the perfect time for warming up at Green Week, a truly unique media event. Each year countless media providers report about the innovations and products of this Berlin-based institution. In Germany alone over 19,000 articles, 1,100 radio spots and 700 TV reports were published about last year’s IGW. Over 3,000 journalists from around 75 countries are accredited for the IGW each year.
The Davos of Agribusiness
Green Week offers an extensive supporting program. Every year more than 300 forums, seminars, conferences and committee meetings take place. Some of the events sponsored by agricultural and food industry commissions took place over a period of several days.
Highlights of the Supporting Program:
- GFFA Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (mainly digital)
- Future Forum for Rural Development
In terms of agricultural policy, the importance of the exhibition is clearly demonstrated by the presence of 200 international ministers and secretaries of state.
