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.

Our USPs:

  • The focus is on the plants. No other trade fair offers so much plant diversity and so many new plants.
  • Unique and highly sought-after combination of the four areas: Plants, Technology, Floristry, Equipment.
  • Only IPM ESSEN will tell you what the next 12 months are all about. The entire industry celebrates its kick-off here.

Connect - Green Ideas 2021


IPM ESSEN is a cooperation partner of Landgard's new online platform .

Together with its partners, the producers' cooperative offers digital industry talks, knowledge and inspiration for the green industry. Starting in February, a wide variety of topics that move the flower and plant as well as fruit and vegetable industry and which, under normal circumstances, find their platform at the world's leading trade fair IPM ESSEN, will take center stage for this purpose. One of the first program highlights on the agenda is the IPM CONNECT-Talk, which will be available to registered users on the platform from February 19th, 2021. The panel discussion will bring together decision-makers, association leaders and politicians to determine, among other things, the thematic focal points of the coming IPM ESSEN. So it's worth taking a look - there's a lot to discover!
