IPM Essen receives attendees such as plant producers, DYI store chain owners, and gardeners. Many authorities, including municipal officials and media representatives, also attend the fair.

About IPM in Essen

IPM in Essen is an international fair that allows attendees to achieve several important goals. Such include networking as well as expanding business and specialist knowledge. It can also help them in learning about new trends and gain recognition.

IPM creates a high-profile business platform for both leading figures and start-ups. The fair includes an extensive exhibition where exhibitors can showcase their innovations. The exposition has four areas of interest. These are Plants, Floristry, Technology, and Garden Features. Many of the products showcased at the fair are sustainable. For example, many exhibitors showcase cold and heat-tolerant plant varieties. 

Essen IPM also features a support program consisting of various specialised events. For instance, one of the main events is the Teaching Show. During the Show, German research centre specialists present their latest plant breeding results. Often, the event has several focus themes. For example, one edition focused on the usage of light and growth regulation. 

Another notable event in the support program of the fair is the Innovation Showcase. During the Showcase, exhibitor firms display their latest shrub novelties. Such include new varieties meant to resist or tolerate heat or cold. The Showcase can be of particular value to start-ups, as it allows them to gain recognition. 

The support program of the trade fair also includes the Flower Battle. This is one of the leading events of the Essen IPM. It features florists and floral designers competing to create the most spontaneous arrangements. They choose, for the task, their building materials from a large stack in front of the audience. Each member of the audience then votes for the arrangements.
