In addition to the presence exhibition, EISENWARENMESSE 2022 offers its exhibitors and visitors the digital platform EISENWARENMESSE @home. The hybrid approach enables visitors around the world who are unable to travel to discover attractive trade fair profiles and products and get in touch with their contacts via innovative channels.

Whether at the fair or in everyday business, a company's success is based on three fundamental building blocks: Inspiration, exchange and business. Where these aspects currently fall short, EISENWARENMESSE @home opens up additional possibilities.

Comprehensive functions make it easy to reach more potential customers, experience trends and lectures on demand and make valuable contacts - completely independent of where you are.
