The event will take place at Messe Essen and will feature Covid-19 prevention measures in full compliance with the latest government regulations. To allow attendees to network and showcase their products in preparation for IPM Essen 2023, organisers will host the IPM Summer Edition. The Edition will take place between 13.06.2022 and 14.06.2022 as a live event.

Industry Relevance

IPM ESSEN is a respected annual event that’s been happening every single year in Essen since its inception in 1983. The trade fair has been one of the most defining events for horticulture in the world, which has prompted the creation of multiple satellite events all over the world. Destinations include Moscow, Beijing, Dubai, and most recent Bangalore since 2014. That’s the trademark of a truly healthy franchise, and there’s much happening at IPM ESSEN. Plant life makes a significant portion of what’s exhibited, from bonsai, nursery plants and palm trees to vegetables, seeds, and bulbs. But where the show excels is in its comprehensive overview of the entire process chain, so there are exhibits on fruit cultivation techniques, lifting equipment, commercial vehicles, irrigation systems and shop fittings.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

IPM ESSEN selects a new partner country to highlight each year and for the last edition, this was Belgium, which meant an influx of Belgian exhibitors and trade visitors. It’s precisely this nature of the trade fair to change its focus that keeps the pool of people that attend fresh, and each year is a good opportunity to reach new clients. In general, IPM ESSEN maintains a firm hold over most European markets with Germany coming in first in terms of concentration of visitors and brands, followed by countries from the European Union. The trade fair attracts retailers, florists, growers, garden centres, engineers, nurseries and many more.
