IPM Essen

The world's leading horticultural trade fair revolves around solutions and innovations in the green sector. The International Plant Fair has been held annually at Messe Essen since 1983. Here exhibitors increasingly present products that are sustainable and suitable for climate change. These include heat- and cold-tolerant plant and shrub varieties, environmentally friendly and resource-saving packaging solutions, organic fertilisers and substrates, air-cleaning, easy-to-care for indoor plants and pots made of sustainable and biodegradable materials.

Exhibitors' Opinions

We reached our target groups and had very good discussions with high acquisition potential for the 2019 financial year. We are also very pleased with the exhibition centre itself and its new and modernised halls. We are already looking forward to IPM ESSEN 2020.

IPM ESSEN is our most important event. The trade fair is becoming increasingly international. This is entirely in our interest, as Patzer is expanding its export business. In addition to visitors from neighbouring European countries, we also welcomed guests from Australia, New Zealand, South America and India to our stand.
CHRISTIAN GÜNTHER - Sales Manager Export/Product Management, Gebr. Patzer GmbH & Co. KG, Sinntal
The Belgian exhibitors praised the internationality and quality of the trade visitors. IPM ESSEN is the ideal platform to meet existing contacts as well as customers from more distant destinations. My countrymen are confident that client acquisition will expand their trade radius. We are looking forward to seeing you again next year!
KOEN VANSWIJGENHOVEN - Managing Director Germany, Flanderns Agrar-Marketing-Büro VLAM, Belgien
Mexico is the third-largest horticultural producer and has become an integral part of the import/export sector. So a stand at IPM ESSEN was a must-have for us. During the fair we had many interesting discussions and made important contacts, especially in the European market. We are already looking forward to the Ornamental Plants & Flowers MÉXICO powered by IPM ESSEN in September. Of course, we will have a stand at IPM ESSEN again next year.
