IPM Essen ’22 Postponed Until ’23

On Dec. 8, organizers of IPM Essen, scheduled for Jan. 25 to 28, 2022, announced that the event will not take place due to the currently difficult global pandemic situation.

In close consultation with the partner associations, Messe Essen enables exhibitors who have already decided to participate to transfer their registration to IPM Essen 2023 — which will take place from Jan. 24-27, 2023. In addition, a two-day IPM Summer Edition will take place June 13 and 14, 2022,  that will provide a mix of performance exhibition and networking.

“While we were working flat out for IPM Essen 2022, the situation of the corona pandemic has deteriorated significantly in the last few days with regard to planning and implementation. Despite all the anticipation for the most important platform in the green industry, there is now great uncertainty among exhibitors and visitors. We are therefore giving all previously registered companies the opportunity to carry over their registration to the 2023 edition,” said Oliver P. Kuhrt, managing director of Messe Essen.

To meet the need for a communication platform in the coming year, the IPM Summer Edition (June 13 and 14, 2022) will provide the green industry with an opportunity to exchange ideas.

The heart of the summer meeting point with event character is a showroom that presents innovative products both on site and on the internet. “The IPM Summer Edition will be held as a two-day exhibition with a network character. We want to give market participants the opportunity to meet and present new products. Experience has shown that the pandemic situation eases in summer, so that this format can in all likelihood be implemented,” ays Sabina Großkreuz, head of marketing at Messe Essen

She added that he IPM Summer Edition is not meant to be a replacement for the IPM Essen.
