International Hardware Fair 2018 will be a four-day show

Positive consensus leads promoters to select four-day schedule again.

In 2018, EISENWARENMESSE, the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR COLOGNE will be held in Cologne, Germany from March 4 to 7. The leading hardware platform in the world will close at 5:00 p.m. on the last day of the fair, March 7, 2018.

Around 44,000 trade visitors came to Cologne in 2016 for EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair. The tightened three-day schedule led to a strong concentration of the business activities of the trade fair participants while attendance levels remained stable.

For the coming 2018 show, the exhibition halls will be opening for four days again. 

"The very good result of the 2016 event is the reason for us changing the duration of the trade fair again," explained Katharina C. Hamma, Chief Operating Officer of Koelnmesse GmbH. "The high level of the flow of visitors is a positive sign for us, because it proves that EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair is considered to be a must-attend event."

The fact that EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair 2018 will open for four days enables the organisers to offer the trade fair participants optimal framework conditions for intensive business.

"As a result of the additional exhibition day, we the trade fair organisers can fulfil our promise to develop, promote and intensify business relations to a full extent while at the same time accommodating the industry's request to have more time to carry out its business," Hamma continued.
