International Hardware Show postponed

The organizers of Eisenwarenmesse, the International Hardware Fair in Cologne, Germany, have rescheduled the event for Sept. 25 to 28, 2022. It was previously slated for March 6 to 9. Koelnmesse CEO Oliver Frese made the announcement, saying the potential for bringing together a global audience “will be significantly greater in September thanks to the participation of the Asian market.”

A Koelnmesse release noted that the “pandemic situation continues to develop dynamically worldwide and strict travel restrictions are expected in March,” affecting key markets. The organization presented the new date as “a win-win for everyone.” Exhibitors will have more lead time to plan and a wider international exposure, while visitors can look forward to a well-rounded program.
