Messe Muenchen’s subsidiary for Southeast Asia — MMI Asia Pte. Ltd. — has taken over ownership and operation of the Asia Climate Forum (ACF) from former owners Media Generation Ventures Ltd (MGV), including the 2022 edition taking place alongside the CleanEnviro Summit Singapore (CESG) from 18th to 20th April at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre.
Asia Climate Forum is Southeast Asia’s leading platform for weather forecasting, meteorological and hydrometeorological equipment, flood prevention and mitigation, and air quality control and management. Through three distinct exhibitions, InterMET, InterFLOOD and InterAIR, Asia Climate Forum has provided a focal point for the industry in Asia since the first edition in 2014.
Michael Wilton, General Manager and Director of MMI Asia Pte. Ltd says, “We are proud to announce the acquisition of the Asia Climate Forum and commit to investing in the show and further the cause of resolving climate issues in the world. We thank the MGV team for the excellent work on the event since its inception, and look forward to working together with them for future editions of ACF.”
MMI Asia Group Project Director, Julia Kwan, explains: “MMI Asia is delighted to be working on the Asia Climate Forum. It is addressing some of the most important subjects that the industry, governments and society have to tackle. The event already provides the means for the industry to enhance, develop and deploy world leading solutions, technologies, and best practices in Southeast Asia. We are looking forward to further enhancing ACF and helping to contribute to the advancement of the sector’s capabilities.”
Kwan continues; “The recent COP26 meetings highlighted a global effort to address this crisis – international collaboration and partnerships are critical to establish plans, and to take action against the consequences of climate change. Not least the Singapore government demonstrating the urgency to tackle Singapore’s climate strategy in global warming and rising sea-levels.”
The previous organizers MGV will continue to work on the event as consultants to MMI Asia, to ensure a smooth transition and consistency for the show and its stakeholders.
Tony Stephenson of MGV, and former Event Director of ACF, says: “There is clearly a need for a strong regional meteorology, flood and air quality show in Southeast Asia, and it’s now time for us to pass the baton to a major organiser such as MMI with the resources to continue developing the event. We’re sure that the new ownership will be highly positive for the long-term future of ACF, and we’re grateful to all the loyal supporters, sponsors and exhibitors who have been with us for the past eight years; we look forward to continuing to work with them as well as MMI in future.”
Asia Climate Forum will add to Messe Muenchen’s portfolio of events in the environmental sector globally, including IFAT, the world’s leading Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Waste and Raw Materials Management and the IE Expo series in China.
The 2022 edition co-located with the CESG will also run concurrently with the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW).
