Why Your Visit Is Worth It

- 2770 international exhibitors from 58 countries showcased their products;
- 47,000+ international trade visitors from 143 countries attended;
- 144,000+ square metres of exhibition space has been dedicated;
The International Hardware Fair (or Internationale Eisenwarenmesse as it is known in its native German) is the premier trade show in support of the hardware industry. Editions are held every two years in Cologne, Germany. The expo manages the entirety of the value chain and is squared off into four main theme zones – industrial supplies, fixtures, connection technology and hardware. International Hardware Fair functions both as a B2B platform to move product off shelves, but also has a commitment to exploring capabilities of new technologies and showcasing the next generation of tools. It’s been doing this to great success since 1960! Visitors survey hand tools, hardware, interior equipment, air tools, building equipment, pressure washers, safety clothing, sanitary equipment, decorative hardware, fixing technology, soldering equipment, power tools and so much more.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
Although initially a trade fair servicing the German market and its neighbors, International Hardware Fair has now turned into a global event. Unlike many other German-based fairs, this show maintains a strong international presence. We’re talking about 87% of all exhibitors and over 70% of all trade visitors. Europe has been the major geographic and economic force at the fair, but countries from Asia, North and South America, Africa and from the Russian Federation are catching up. As far as the professional background of visitors goes, you have the buyers and suppliers of the industrial, professional craftsmen, engineers and architects at the forefront to learn all there is about the latest developments in the industry.
