From January 28 to 31, 2020, IPM ESSEN will take place at Messe Essen for the 38th time. At the world's leading fair for horticulture, more than 1,500 exhibitors from nearly 50 nations will show their innovative products and services along the entire value added chain in horticulture - from new plant breeds via pioneering technology right up to exclusive floristry and equipment for the point of sale. The neighbor France will present itself as the official partner country. Extra value added will be offered by the extensive supporting program with numerous specialist forums, competitions and awards ceremonies.
The 38th IPM ESSEN has been opened: At Messe Essen, around 300 guests, including representatives from the economic and political fields, followed the festive Opening Ceremony which flew the flag of the partner country France. In her opening speech, Julia Klöckner, Federal Minister of Agriculture and Food, announced the continuation of the federal program for raising energy efficiency from which horticulture will profit, too. In addition to her, the speakers also included France's Consul General, Dr. Olivia Berkeley-Christmann, and the North Rhine-Westphalia Agriculture Minister, Ursula Heinen-Esser. Moreover, the first day of the fair was characterized by innovative plant breeds. An expert jury honored innovations in six categories.
