ECOMONDO, the green economy’s Mediterranean platform

From November 5th to 8th 2014 “Ecomondo 2014”, the great expo event dedicated to major European and international strategies for eco-innovation and transforming waste into a resource, will be back at Rimini Fiera. Over the four days, over 90,000 industry members are expected from all over the world, in particular from the Euro-Mediterranean area.

The expo has assumed a leading role, becoming not only the key technological platform for the economy of the future, with particular attention to the main European and international strategies for eco-innovation and the transformation of waste into a resource, but also a qualified hub for training and information.

International platforms for start-up, green jobs, sustainable transport and ecological vehicles, innovation technology, eco industrial design: the environmental sector is continually evolving and only ECOMONDO, the trade´s leading expo, is able to bring its innovations together and present them systematically. Rimini Fiera chairman Lorenzo Cagnoni comments: “We put enormous effort into raising the event´s international profile. We concentrated on emerging countries for enterprises´ business and more in general the entire expo grew around the companies´ current concrete needs, making business and development tools available, indicating routes to take and favouring new relations”.

ECOMONDO 2014 will host the third edition of the States General of the Green Economy, which this year will have as its leitmotif “The development of green enterprises as a way out of the Italian crisis”. Organized by the Sustainable Development Foundation in collaboration with the Ministry for the Environment and the Ministry of Economic Development, the proceedings will examine in detail the contents developed in the course of the year with the contribution of 67 business organizations working in the environment sector.

As well as ECOMONDO, from November 5th to 8th the sixteen halls will be entirely occupied thanks to other important expos dedicated to the environment being held simultaneously. In fact, KEY ENERGY (international expo for sustainable energy and mobility), KEY WIND (Wind energy exhibition), COOPERAMBIENTE (exhibition of cooperatives involved in the environment) and H2R - Mobility for Sustainability and Condominio ECO will all be held.
