ISENWARENMESSE - INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR COLOGNE 2016: Trade fair classic on course for success

Early booking campaign closes with an excellent number of registrations

EISENWARENMESSE - INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR COLOGNE announced new conceptual moves at the beginning of the year including the changed schedule and the premiere of the DIY Boulevard. The plans are now beginning to pay off. At the end of the early bird registration period (status as of end of June 2015), the organisers Koelnmesse had already received over 15 percent more registrations than for the same period of the previous year. 12 percent of the exhibition space has already been sold. Registrations have been received from renowned exhibitors from home and abroad, including also several returnee exhibitors. In terms of its internationality, EISENWARENMESSE - INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR COLOGNE is also well on track: Compared to the same period of the previous year, the level of internationality has also increased by over 15 percent.


From 6 to 8 March 2016, over a period of three days, the most important decision-makers, manufacturers and trade visitors from all over the world will meet up in the exhibition halls of Koelnmesse to experience pioneering innovations and the most exciting trends, establish contacts and do the biggest business of the year.

Just a moment: Three - not four? Yes, in line with the business behaviour of the national and international trade visitors, the EISENWARENMESSE - INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR COLOGNE is also evolving. In 2014, the visitors spent on average two days at the trade fair - with equal effectiveness. This is why we are responding to the demands of the industry and from 2016 onwards will be condensing the trade fair into three days.

INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR COLOGNE will be held from 6 to 8 March, 2016.

Figures that count.

2,783 exhibitors from 53 countries. Approximately 44,000 trade visitors from 136 countries in the middle of a conurbation with 21 million inhabitants. The world’s number 1 in the hardware sector for over 50 years.

Why look for a trade fair with better figures? You will not find one. The EISENWARENMESSE is still THE meeting place for all manufacturers, distributors, purchasers, multipliers and decision-makers of the hardware industry.
