The number one industry event worldwide.

Fully-booked exhibition halls, crowded aisles and a stimulating event programme: That was the EISENWARENMESSE - INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR COLOGNE 2018!

2,770 exhibitors from 58 countries and over 47,000 trade visitors from 143 countries came to Cologne. Decision-makers from all over the world made use of the number one event of the hardware industry to discover the new products, innovations and trends of the industry.

One of the stimulating trend themes of EISENWARENMESSE was the theme digitalisation that an extensive event programme was dedicated to. Highlights included the two-day dSummit with lectures and exhibitors in the scope of the EISENforum, the Start-up Village as well as the "3D printing - Additive Production" special event.

The next EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair Cologne is scheduled to take place from 1 to 4 March 2020.

At this year's EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair Cologne there was a well-balanced mix between international and German DIY customers and mail order distributors. Over the first three days of the fair, we were able to welcome almost all important trading partners at our interactive Smart Home exhibition stand.
