Eisenwarenmesse, also known as International Hardware Fair Cologne, is the largest trade show in its segment. Founded in 1971, it brings the hardware industry to Messe Cologne for four days of excellent offerings and new connections.
The last edition set a record in attendance numbers. It attracted a total of 2762 exhibitors from 58 nations and 47,424 professional visitors from 143 nations, which resulted in a great number of business deals during and after the trade show. This is why Eisenwarenmesse Cologne on 21 - 24 February 2021 is highly anticipated.

What is new for International Hardware Fair 2021
The 2020 edition of Eisenwarenmesse Cologne was postponed following the coronavirus outbreak. The international hardware trade show will take place in 2021 instead. The Eisenwarenmesse 2021 new dates are 21 - 24 February. A positive result of this unfortunate postponement is that Eisenwarenmesse 2021 will now host under its roof Asia-Pacific Sourcing 2021 - the premier platform for house and garden hardware and leisure products from the Far East, which is expected to bring in an addition of around 800 exhibitors and thousands of visitors.
