Five brilliant innovations and initiatives with a real impact in one of the areas of the Climate Show are selected annually by the Show’s partners. The eco-entrepreneurs (Catwalkers) are invited to participate in the Catwalk competition held during the Climate Show.
A jury composed of entrepreneurs and investors will select the winner. The prize, the Crystal Cat Award, will be delivered to the winner. Moreover, all selected projects will benefit from media visibility, international promotion, and networking.
The Climate Show Museum
The Museum of Ancient Technologies of the Climate Show includes products that are still used today, while their greener equivalents are already on the market. Come and discover the products and services that are part of the 2019 edition of the Museum of Ancient Technology of the Climate Show.
If you are a company and have developed clean solutions that replace those currently less eco-friendly yet still on the market, you can freely exhibit them in the Museum of the Climate Show.
The Climate Show aims to promote green jobs worldwide. Information on green jobs from our partners will be made available to interested visitors and participants of the Climate Show.
Waste Exchange Market, Speed-dating & B2B
The Waste Exchange Market is organized by our partners in order to facilitate connections between buyers and sellers of biomass such as oils or recycled papers.
The B2B (Business2Business) and speed-dating activities organized by our partners will connect potential buyers and investors with exhibitors such as SMEs and start-ups, in order to promote business transactions or their innovations and new technical solutions.
Green Finance, PitchTime & Investors Club
One of the key success factors of a sustainable project and its commercialization lies in the availability of funding at each stage of its development. This is why the issue of sustainable financing will be addressed during the 2 days of the Climate Show through different activities, such as the workshop on green finance as well as the Pitch Time, which is the presentation of projects from start-ups in front of investors and the public. In addition, a networking dinner with the Climate Investors Club is planned for the first evening (only upon registration).
