“Personal contact cannot be replaced by digital communication”, the advisory board of IPM ESSEN agreed in its first meeting after the Corona outbreak. The crisis has made it clearer than ever how important face to face communication within horticulture is in order to stay up to date and to drive businesses forward. The next IPM ESSEN will continue to offer these opportunities by continuing with an extensive range of exhibits and supporting programmes. The prerequisites for a safe and orderly course of events in these times are in place with Messe Essen having proved that trade events with appropriate hygiene requirements function successfully.
Oliver P. Kuhrt, Managing Director of Messe Essen said “The health and well-being of our guests is our top priority. The hygiene concept is well thought-out and tested. Experience has shown that trade fairs with appropriate measures work perfectly. The thoroughly positive feedback makes us look confidently towards IPM ESSEN to be held 26th to 29th January 2021″.
