The EISENWARENMESSE – INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR is the clear number one of the industry, and is more important than ever before in 2022 as a globally established platform for innovations, business and communication.

The trade fair will be the starting and anchoring point when the hardware world turns on its motor again. The first discussions after the crisis have taken place at the top level In Cologne and international relations are being established and expanded upon. After all, when have personal relationships ever been this important?

Let’s rock this new beginning together! Let's start the "new normal" at full throttle and get the motor running – who can do that better than us?

On what is happening in Ukraine


At Koelnmesse we are closely following current developments in Ukraine, as the people of all nations around the world. The Russian attack stands in absolute opposition to our own values. As a trade fair organiser, we stand wholeheartedly for peaceful coexistence and free trade around the world.

The war has caused tremendous uncertainty and commotion regarding unrestricted service provision, monetary transactions and passenger transport between Russia, Belarus and Europe or Germany in particular. We are therefore initially suspending the participation of Russian and Belarusian exhibitors on our physical and digital platforms until further notice. However, we remain in contact with our partners in Russia, some of whom have been with us for many years and who unfortunately cannot attend our trade fairs now in Cologne. We are certain they have also been surprised by the decision to engage in war.

At Koelnmesse, we are particularly happy that everyone in our sales team in Kiev is doing well under the circumstances.

The next INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR will take place from 25 to 28 September 2022.
