The modernisation of the fair site in Essen is resulting in a few new features in the area allocation plan for the world's leading fair. For the first time, parts of the New Messe Essen including the Glass Foyer East covering 2,000 square metres will be put into operation.
The old Hall 5, also known as the "Danes' Hall", will not be available on the occasion of IPM ESSEN in 2018. With its almost 100 exhibitors, Floradania will therefore occupy the temporary Hall 14 and the foyer of the Grugahalle.
Fair Hall 9 was completely demolished in the first construction phase and is being replaced by a new hall flooded with light.
The northern part will have been completed by the time of the fair. Thus, the Polish and Spanish joint booths will move back there after guest appearances in Hall 7 in 2017. After the positive experiences at the last IPM ESSEN, the French national booth will remain in the Galeria.
For next year, firms and plant producers from Italy have decided not to be exhibitors together as until now but instead to be divided amongst the various fair halls according to the products.Back to the news overview
