About ISM 2023

ISM is the most prominent meeting place for the sweets and snacks sector. Normally scheduled in January, ISM 2023 dates were postponed to 23rd to 25th April to allow for better planning. Despite the changes in the programming the three fair days will deliver the same exciting networking opportunities, inspiration and innovation. Stay tuned for information whether the co-located Pro-Sweets event will be able to join ISM 2023 rescheduled dates.

Each year, ISM gathers top-shelf exhibitors and highly qualified visitors to the halls of Messe Cologne. The ISM showcase is a confectionary exhibition and vital networking, communication, and decision-making hub illuminating the newest trends in the snacking industry. Over 1800 exhibitors will offer a product display within the top competencies of the fair: cocoa, chocolate, biscuits, snack foods, sugar confectionery, ice cream and raw pastes. Innovations will find a specialised audience at the New Product Showcase and the Start-Up Area alongside the Halla Market, reflecting the current German and European food retail market diversification. Must-attend is also the ISM Award presentation honouring selected contributions to driving innovation in the confectionery and snack industry.

Given the popularity of Cologne as a trade fair destination, hotels during ISM 2023 dates will be in exceptionally high demand. For this reason, we at ExpoBeds advise you to make your reservation as soon as your trade show is confirmed. Our specialists work with a rich network of property providers near Cologne Messe and will be happy to assist you in booking the most suitable hotel for your ISM 2023 business trip. Contact us now stating your location and budget preferences, and one of our travel agents will reply with a customised list of ISM 2023 hotel offerings.

Accommodation feedback - hotel overall was very good, breakfast, gym, sauna, only the room I thought was a bit small for a 5 star format, but for the occasion was all good. Your services – very helpful and on the ball, no issues. 10 out of 10.

The event was great but in my humble oppinion too busy and not enough depth. At the first day I spent nealry 2 hours just to enter the venue and was not able to see the opening.

The hotel was very good. They were flexible to help me with a room prior to checkin time and eveything was accordingly. Perfect.

It was very good to lean on your help to get the accommodation and logistics solved. Thank you and I recommend you continue with this.

The accommodation was really good. Centrally located, very clean rooms, genuinely friendly staff, good service and a very nice variety of breakfast options. Motel One is now my preferred hotel when I will be visiting other cities across Germany.

Your service: Also very good. Fast replies, clear communication and good pricing.

I will be sending you another email in a minute about a hotel need in Paris in March 2023.
