Managing Director of Herstellerverband Haus & Garten e.V.

"First things first: we can continue to look forward to an INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR in 2022 and thus to an important instrument to prepare for the future in these turbulent times together as an industry. The postponement will enable all exhibiting companies to devote their full attention to the preparations for the fair after what is expected to be a hard winter."

Stefan Horst

Stefan Horst

Managing Director of the German association of tool manufacturers (FWI)

"The German tool industry is strongly export-oriented. We therefore need an internationally widely attended INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR and we are confident that we will achieve this goal with the postponement.”

John Herbert

John Herbert

General Secretary of the European DIY Retail Association/Global Home Improvement Network (EDRA/GHIN)

“Trade fairs are the lifeline of our international business activities and play an immense role in helping the pandemic-battered global economy get back on its feet. The EISENWARENMESSE – INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR is one of the events that we always recommend our members attend. The fact that we will have to wait to see each other in Cologne again in no way diminishes the anticipation.”

Wolfgang J. Kirchhoff

Wolfgang J. Kirchhoff

Chairman of the Advisory Board and Managing Director of Witte Tools

“The industry needs a strong EISENWARENMESSE – INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR to build long-term success. If the conditions for this are better in September than in March, then postponing the date is the only logical and correct decision for the industry and the trade fair.”

Save the date

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