Green Week kicks off anniversary year in 2022
In 2022 the International Green Week will take place as an in-person event again on the exhibition grounds. From 21 to 30 January on the Messe Berlin exhibition grounds, the focus will be on everything to do with the food industry, agriculture and horticulture.
The Green Week opens the event calendar in a special year for Berlin, as in 2022 the city will be celebrating its two-hundredth anniversary as a trade fair venue. “With the Green Week, a highlight for the general public, we look forward to kicking off this anniversary year and sending a clear message that the trade fair industry is on course for recovery“, said Martin Ecknig, CEO of Messe Berlin.
The IGW team under project manager Lars Jaeger also looks forward to holding a live event: “Next year we will at last be able to welcome visitors in person again on the exhibition grounds. That will be a boost for the entire team at Messe Berlin to continue preparations at full speed“, said Jaeger.
The eighty-seventh edition of the International Green Week is co-organised by its non-commercial sponsors, the German Farmers’ Union (DBV), the Federation of German Food and Drink Industries (BVE), the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and in cooperation with the exhibitors.
At this event, special attention is being paid to developing a safety and hygiene concept that will be coordinated with Berlin’s public authorities. “The aim is to establish a safe environment for our visitors, partners and exhibitors, while ensuring the Green Week remains a special experience“, said Lars Jaeger.
