In addition to the unique depth and range of products provided by the exhibitors, a first-class event programme awaits trade visitors when the EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair opens its doors from 1 to 4 March 2020 in Cologne. It is also the place to find out about current developments and trends in the industry. Besides award ceremonies, accolades and special events, the EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair is also an important platform for professional exchange within the industry between the respective target groups.

EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair Cologne stands for innovations and new products, which can also be seen in the special events. The DIY Boulevard gives exhibitors the opportunity to present their competence and innovations in an authentic POS environment. With 62 participating companies from the construction, home and garden industry and an area extended to 300 metres, the Boulevard is fully booked way in advance and this year it will be located in Hall 11.1.
