Unique Range of Nursery Goods and Plants
As the world's leading fair for horticulture, IPM ESSEN will be a fixed date for horticulturalists and landscapers, too. From January 24 to 27, 2017, a large number of the around 1,600 exhibitors will present their new products relating to everything to do with nursery goods, plants, tools and technology. Thus, the trade fair will offer an ideal platform in order to obtain suggestions for the ever rising demand for the designing of private gardens or municipal areas or also for innovative interior projects. It will be possible to place orders for the selected goods directly in situ at Messe Essen. Thus, trade visitors will have the possibilities of obtaining information about new products in the sector in a compact and direct way on short paths and designing their ranges according to current customer wishes. The supporting programme will be high-quality: In addition to the established information forum called "The Green City", the future congress entitled "Horticulture and Landscaping Outlooks" will take place during IPM ESSEN for the first time.
IPM ESSEN will stock the widest available range of nursery goods and plants which cannot be experienced at any other fair: In Fair Halls 10 to 12, producers will introduce their trees, woody plants, shrubs and bushes. On the Dutch joint booth, it will be possible to discover, for example, the newest ornamental hedges, bushes, perennial plants, water plants and road trees. For Mediterranean designing, exhibitors from Spain (Hall 7) will offer an extensive available range of palm trees, oleanders and olive trees. A visit to the Italy halls (temporary Halls 13 and 14 / foyer of the Grugahalle) in which producers from the Mediterranean country will show their typical and exotic plants such as citrus and orange growths will be inspiring, too. Anybody searching for hardy plants will be recommended to visit the Polish joint booth (Hall 7). The exhibitors will bring hardy trees, bushes, perennial plants, climbing plants and fruit plants with them to Messe Essen. In Hall 10, France will show, amongst other exhibits, new magnolias, long-flowering roses and, for the first time, unusual mulberries, walnuts and chestnuts.
Wide Diversity of Ornamental Plants and Ideas for Roof Gardens and Terraces
The appropriate plants for roof gardens, terraces and also interior projects will be shown by the suppliers of ornamental plants in Halls 1 and 2 and the Galeria with the second French joint booth.
