From 26th to 29th January 2021, the meeting place of the worldwide green industry will open at Messe Essen: IPM Essen traditionally marks the beginning of a new business year for its exhibitors and visitors. "We are pleased about a very good booking
status. Numerous exhibitors are already passionately planning their participation. Thus, IPM Essen is underlining its status as the most important industry platform and source of inspiration for the horticultural industry," says Head of Project Andrea Hölker.
Recently, over 1,500 exhibitors from 46 countries took part in the world's leading trade fair and presented innovative products and services in the fields of plants, technology, floristry and equipment. It became clear that climate change and sustainability are among the defining themes in horticulture: Whether environmentally friendly packaging, climate-tolerant new varieties, insect-friendly plants to promote biodiversity, air-purifying green plants, plant boxes with integrated water storage or peat substitutes – the international horticulture impressively demonstrated its innovative power.
A few weeks ago, Messe Essen, together with two cooperation partners, set an important signal for the coming years: Both the FDF – Fachverband Deutscher Floristen (Association of German Florists) and the Bund deutscher Baumschulen (BDB – Association of German Nurseries) extended their contracts for several years on the occasion of IPM ESSEN. In addition to their participation as exhibitors at IPM ESSEN, both associations have for many years been organising a top-class additional program for the trade visitors.
