Established in 1926, International Green Week (IGW) is taking place for the 85nd time in 2020. The IGW is a one-of-a-kind international exhibition for the food, agricultural and horticultural industries. At the same time, the IGW is the point of origin for the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) with more than 80 departmental ministers. Producers from all over the world come to IGW to test market food and luxury items and reinforce their brand image. Following consumer trends, regional sourcing plays an increasingly important role. Renewable resources, organic agricultural and products, Fair Trade, rural development and gardening continue to gain importance at International Green Week.
The IGW also features commercial and non-commercial agricultural, forestry, and landscaping exhibits. Changing annual themes typically include such topics as renewable resources or scientific livestock breeding and production. These trade show elements are of particular interest to those involved in the developing markets of central and eastern Europe.
The IGW was covered by trade and popular media journalists (4.840 from 70 countries) from 15,000 newspaper and trade journal reports in Germany as well as in 390 telecasts, more than 1,500 radio reports.
In terms of agricultural policy, the importance of the exhibition is clearly demonstrated by the presence of 200 foreign ministers and state secretaries in addition to prime ministers, ministers and state secretaries from Germany.
