IPM Messecup 2022

Effective staging, exciting creations and lots of creative fun - the IPM Messe Cup is always worth participating in. No matter whether florist or gardener, trainee or master - every competitor gets the chance to present himself, his skills and his workpieces at IPM Essen in the categories "bouquet", "green hero in a pot" and "pot planting".

The theme of the tripartite competition is "MISSION: FLOWER FUTURE". The wake-up calls of the young generation to climate and environmental protection cannot be ignored. Let your imagination run free and show us, in a personal "statement", your love for the diverse and blooming nature. The IPM Messe-Cup focuses on the range of floristic and horticultural services - paired with a large portion of creativity. In each category, the work pieces that best implement the theme with free design will be awarded prizes. The competition is particularly worthwhile for the next generation of designers. This is because the jury also honours the best trainees in each category. In addition, the combination winner receives the coveted IPM Messe Cup.
