EnergyCompany articles • 21.01.2020

At the end of 2019 the EC declared the ambitious aim for Europe to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, slowing down global heating and mitigating its effects. Sure enough, these processes will reflect on the sustainable development of SE Europe, which will speed up the investments in the following areas: environment, climate and digitalization.

Sustainable solutions for the industry, municipalities, and end consumers

In the context of these processes Via Expo organizes seeSUSTAINtec (7-9 April, Sofia) – the only international exhibition and forum in Bulgaria for Waste Management & Recycling, Energy Efficiency, Renewables, Air Quality, Smart Cities. Sustainable solutions will be presented as a profitable business and a rewarding investment. International companies are looking for distributors and investors, while the industry, municipalities, and end consumers are aiming to decrease their carbon footprint and to improve their competitiveness.

Broad exhibition lineup

The organizer is expecting a growing visitor interest (in 2019, 21% of the visitors came from abroad, 71% from Bulgaria). For the 11th consecutive year, there will be an Austrian Pavilion. A new highlight is the Loyalty program, which provides exhibitors with numerous additional services. They will preliminarily get in contact with distributors, agents or associates through the on-line platform "Looking for business partners".

The exhibition lineup – companies from Austria, Bulgaria, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Switzerland have joined the event.
