Berlin’s iconic International Green Week

Messe Berlin IGW Partnerland 2017 Ungarn *** Local Caption *** Grüne Woche

|6 January 2017|

Germany

Hungary is the partner country of this year’s International Green Week (IGW) in Berlin.

This year the International Green Week will be taking place for the 82nd time in its 91-year history. More than 1,600 exhibitors from around 65 countries will be presenting displays covering every area of agriculture, the food industry and horticulture. Hungary, the partner country of the International Green Week Berlin 2017, will be putting on a show of its customs and culinary highlights to trade visitors and the general public. The slogan of Hall 10.2, which features all the country’s displays, is ’Rich in Tradition, Diverse: Hungary’.

The International Green Week Berlin is among the longest-running trade fairs in the city as well as one of the best-known events in all of Germany. It can now look back on 91 eventful years and in 2017 the doors will open at the Green Week for the 82nd time. No other international exhibition attracting hundreds of thousands of consumers every year has taken place as many times as the Green Week. Originally just a local product mart, it has grown into the world’s largest consumer show for agriculture, food and horticulture. Since 1926 close to 87,000 exhibitors from around 128 countries have presented their wide-ranging products from all over the world to 32.4 million trade visitors and the general public.

The event website states sustainability is at the heart of the iconic event: “Renewable resources, organic agriculture, gardening and the future of rural development continue to gain importance at International Green.”

IGW takes place between 20 to 29 January.
