INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR suspends pandemic-related 2021

Preparations for the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR from 6 to 9 March 2022 will start in the coming weeks.

Unfortunately, we have to inform you today that the hybrid EISENWARENMESSE-International Hardware Fair planned for 21-24 February 2021 has to be cancelled due to the dynamic infection rate and current travel restrictions.

This cancellation was very difficult for us, as we were very well positioned to hold the fair with our hybrid fair format and the planned contents as well as the comprehensive hygiene and safety concept #B-SAFE4business.

However, we are now looking forward to the next EISENWARENMESSE-International Hardware Fair, which will take place in Cologne from 6 to 9 March 2022, with renewed energy and broad commitment from the industry.

You can already look forward with us to the new, hybrid trade fair format with even more international reach, as well as top-class, informative special shows and theme platforms such as the eCommerce area.

Make a note in you calender

As the largest tool manufacturer in Europe, Germany needs the EISENWARENMESSE – International Hardware Fair Cologne as its leading trade fair. The planned concept is absolutely viable for 2022 as well, and we will do everything possible to put on a powerful and innovative EISENWARENMESSE – International Hardware Fair Cologne together with Koelnmesse.

Stefan Horst, Managing Director

Association of German Tool Manufacturers (FWI)

Koelnmesse has completely convinced our members with its #B-SAFE4business concept and we have no doubt about the ability to ensure the safe execution of an event. Nevertheless, we made the recommendation to cancel in consultation with our members because the EISENWARENMESSE – International Hardware Fair Cologne would not have been able to become the meeting place expected by our members due to the present unforeseeable events.

Ralf Rahmede, Managing Director

German Association of Home and Garden Manufacturers (HHG)


The consequences of the corona virus, which is occurring worldwide, also affect our Koelnmesse events. The health of all trade fair participants, customers and partners is paramount.
