ISM Cologne 2022 awaits

Held annually in Cologne, ISM is one of the leading markets for sweets and snacks. Anticipation is already building for the ISM Cologne 2022 dates, after the previous edition of the fair had to be cancelled due to the risks and restrictions associated with the coronavirus pandemic. The industry will next reunite in person between 30 January and 2 February 2022 at the usual staging ground of Messe Cologne. The dates will once again be shared with the leading sweets industry supply show – ProSweets.

With a successful combination between innovative offers, expert curation and excellent networking opportunities, the ISM Cologne showcase is must-attend for industry members from around the globe. Over 1,600 exhibitors present a comprehensive overview of the world of sweets, with offers in the segments of chocolate products, sugar confectionery, trendy snack foods, ice cream and deep frozen sweets. ISM 2022 is also the place where visitors can find the largest offer of private label sweets and snacks.

The event concept of ISM Cologne perfectly matches the needs of both producers and the sweets and confectionery retail market. The high-quality of the exhibition and the presence of over 37,000 industry representatives with significant purchasing and decision-making power make for an unmatched union between supply and demand that can be beneficial to every business on the market. The fair’s offer is enhanced by outstanding supporting areas and events like the Trend Court, the ISM Expert Stage, the New Product Showcase and the ISM Award show.
