Ecomondo 2021 back to its usual format

Ecomondo will be back in physical form at Rimini Expo Centre from 26 to 29 October 2021 with 1000 exhibitors and an area occupancy rate of 90% compared to 2019 levels. The first new entry for this year will be found at the West entrance: an outdoor exhibition area leading to the covered area occupied almost entirely by waste collection and transport vehicles: the biennial SAL.VE exhibition groups together urban hygiene and separate waste collection vehicle chassis manufacturers and fitters under the same roof.

Among the new ideas and innovations at Ecomondo is taking a journey into environment sanitization, a particularly hot topic these days. Visitors will also witness innovations for water efficiency systems and hydro-geological risk. At the heart of the event are the circular bio-economy and start-ups, which will also have an exhibition area inside the Expo Centre and, thanks to collaboration with ITA, together make up a part of the circular economy and renewables´ technological supply chain.

In regards to the conferences, Ecomondo will enjoy considerable support from the European Commission which will be bringing its dual strategy on the theme of decarbonisation to the show: reducing climate-changing gases and strengthening biodiversity through the regeneration of soil, forests and seas, which together, help to assimilate more CO2, guarantee food production and protect against future pandemics. From "flagship events" to case studies, the focus will be on the entire Euro-Mediterranean basin. Training will also be in the spotlight: case studies and updates on European and national regulations will bring together public administration and business. All the conferences will be streamed live and will be available to watch on demand from 2 November.

Organizer Italian Exhibition Group assures that visiting Rimini Exhibition Centre will be extremely safe – all those attending the events will be required to present a Green Pass (certifying that they have either recovered from COVID-19, been vaccinated or tested negative within the last 48 hours), have their temperature checked and wear a face mask. Anyone not in possession of a Green Pass will need to present a negative swab result.
