IPM Essen

IPM Essen is the international trade fair for plants and the world’s leading trade fair for horticulture. It is the only specialist trade fair of its kind to cover the entire value chain of plants, including production, technology, floristry, garden features and point of sale.

No other plant fair offers trade visitors such a comprehensive market overview and so many multifaceted novelties. 1,564 exhibitors from 45 nations and over 54,000 visitors from all over the world attended the 2018 edition of the show with around 40% of these coming from outside Germany. Over 24% of up and coming attendees have been in the industry for less than 5 years.

If you are looking to sell into the world’s plant sector, IPM Essen is a must attend show for you!

The minimum stand is 9m2, 12m2 on a corner, and all stands are a minimum of 3m deep, but firms may request stand size of choice above this; we accommodate requirements on a best endeavour basis.
