Exhibitors and visitors in particular show lively interest in the subject of sustainability.
HMC provides a central meeting place for various industry flagship fairs.
The following is a list of industry fairs, events for the general public, and guest events which are explicitly linked to sustainability and are moving into focus to meet the demand from exhibitors, visitors and their respective industries.
