IPM ESSEN: Performance show for producing horticulture
From January 22 to 25, 2019, the entire international green sector will congregate at Messe Essen. Around 1,600 exhibitors from nearly 50 countries will show their innovations in the Plants, Technology, Floristry and Garden Features areas.
At IPM ESSEN, producing horticulture traditionally finds the newest technology, innovative substrates as well as a comprehensive selection of plants: from ornamental plants and hydrocultures via herb, vegetable and fruit plants right up to Mediterranean growths and tree nursery goods.

The motto of IPM ESSEN 2019 is „Green, great, gorgeous!“
All the leading plant breeders and marketing organisations will be represented. As a supplement to the range available from the exhibitors, IPM ESSEN will offer an excellent supporting programme, e.g. the International Horticulture Forum with the partner country Belgium or the Innovation Showcase.
It will be possible to find plants in all shapes and colours in Halls 1 and 2, in half of Hall 4, in Halls 6, 7, 8 and 8B, in the Galeria as well as in the Foyer of the Grugahalle. Just a look at the range available on the international joint booths reveals how multifaceted the range of plants on offer at IPM ESSEN will be: no matter whether chrysanthemums and stress-resistant summer lindens from the partner country Belgium, air-improving growths from Denmark, yuccas from Costa Rica, drought-resistant plants from Israel, roses from England, balcony tomatoes from France, thick-leaved growths from Mexico, robust tree nursery goods from Poland, little lemon trees from Italy or orchids from Taiwan.
Furthermore, breeders with global activities will show their newest plant creations. No fewer than two competitions will serve producing horticulture as an orientation aid about what varieties will be popular on the market in the near future: Amongst all the plant exhibitors at IPM, the Innovation Showcase in Hall 1A will choose the best new breeds in the "Bedding and Balcony Plants", "Tub Plants", "Flowering House Plants", "Cut Flowers", "Woody Plants" and "Shrubs" categories.
The Show Your Colours Award on the BIZZ booth in Hall 8 will highlight perennial plants which will be particularly easy to market as a result of their special properties. The exhibitors at IPM ESSEN will also include national and international marketing organisations. The BGI Trade Centre in Hall 1 will be a suitable place for networking. Services of the wholesale trade will be presented on the area of the Association of the German Flower Wholesale and Import Trade (BGI).
For all visitors, who want to be well-informed, the free IPM ESSEN app for iOS and Android will offer all the relevant information about the horticultural event of the year: from the list of exhibitors via the supporting programme right up to a note function as support for a structured visit to the fair. Two weeks before the beginning of the fair, the app will be available for downloading from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
