After a break due to the pandemic, IPM ESSEN is back. From 25 to 28 January 2022, the green sector will have a platform at Messe Essen to discuss one topic in particular: sustainability. The usual extensive supporting program will be extended by the topic Packaging in Horticulture.
“Regardless of the pandemic, climate change continues to concern us. Sustainable solutions must be presented and discussed. The next IPM ESSEN is more than overdue. We need this international communication platform as an important innovation driver”, emphasizes IPM Advisory Board Chairwoman and President of the Landesverband Gartenbau NRW e. V. Eva Kähler-Theuerkauf.
“We are again experiencing a very high level of willingness to participate in IPM ESSEN 2022 in all exhibition sectors. Especially now, the industry needs a platform for innovations and personal exchange”, Sabina Großkreuz, Business Unit Manager Marketing at Messe Essen, looks ahead to the next event.
A large number of exhibitors from Germany and abroad have already confirmed their participation at IPM ESSEN. Among them are joint presentations from Belgium, Costa Rica, Denmark, France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the USA.
Show on sustainable packaging
Climate change and environmental protection have long since entered the minds of end consumers. The industry faces the challenge of meeting the desire for greater sustainability. A first step can be the use of environmentally friendly packaging. The new special show “Packaging in Horticulture” provides the producing horticulture industry with an overview of the market and shows possible solutions. In addition to products made from recycled plastic, the focus is also on plastic alternatives and reusable systems.
