Preparations for IPM ESSEN 2022 are in full swing. From 25 to 28 January, Messe Essen, Germany, will once again be the meeting place and innovation platform for the international green sector. Over 1,500 exhibitors from 45 countries will present themselves to an expected audience of over 50,000 visitors.

IPM Essen 2022 is About Sustainability

Starting signal for the world's leading trade fair for horticulture: After a break due to the pandemic, IPM ESSEN is back with current topics and innovative products. From 25 to 28 January 2022, the green sector will have a top-class platform at Messe Essen to discuss one topic in particular: Sustainability. With its products, horticulture makes a decisive contribution to climate protection. The industry's need to exchange ideas in person is therefore great. Thanks to rising vaccination rates, the signs for the next IPM ESSEN are green. Numerous exhibitors from Germany and abroad have already confirmed their participation in the industry event of the year and booked a stand. All You Need to Know About IPM Essen 2022 quote

Exhibition as an Important Innovation Driver

With regard to the demand for flowers and plants, the conditions for a successful IPM ESSEN 2022 could not be better. The own home as a cozy retreat and the garden as a green oasis of well-being play an even greater role with the consumer in times of pandemic. Self-sufficiency in fruits and vegetables is also back in fashion - especially among the younger generation. At the same time, consumers are developing an ever greater eco-consciousness. "The horticultural industry must make itself fit for the future in order to meet today's demands. Regardless of the pandemic, climate change continues to concern us. Sustainable solutions must be presented and discussed. The next IPM ESSEN is more than overdue because we need this international communication platform as an important innovation driver," emphasizes IPM Advisory Board Chairwoman and President of the Landesverband Gartenbau NRW e. V. Eva Kähler-Theuerkauf.

"We are again experiencing a very high level of willingness to participate in IPM ESSEN 2022 in all exhibition sectors.

A large number of exhibitors from Germany and abroad have already confirmed their participation in the industry event of the year and intend to present themselves in the usual size at IPM ESSEN. Among them are joint presentations from Belgium, Costa Rica, Denmark, France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, and the USA. "We really missed IPM ESSEN in 2021. It is simply the most important trade show for us in the field of winter-hardy nursery stock, ornamental plants, and perennials. We have already reserved our British joint stand for next year and look forward to seeing our customers and partners again," says Pat Flynn, Trade Association Manager at the Commercial Horticultural Association - CHA.
