The world’s premier fair in the green sector was marked by satisfaction amongst the exhibitors and the visitors due to increased ordering activities.

At the fair, over 35 per cent of the visitors placed orders directly with the 1,537 exhibitors from 46 countries. Thus, the ordering activities have risen by 16 per cent in comparison with the previous year. That was also reflected by the good rating of the economic situation: 88.4 per cent of the people surveyed see the economic prospects of their sector as positive, a slight rise compared with last year.

According to Frank Thorwirth, chairman and CEO of Messe Essen, and Egon Galinnis, managing director of Messe Essen, the worldwide range available in the green sector and the international demand encounter each other here at IPM ESSEN.

Jürgen Mertz, president of Zentralverband Gartenbau (Central Horticultural Association), the sponsor of IPM ESSEN added, “I am enthusiastic about the frankness of the exhibitors, the partners and the trade visitors in the dialogue with each other. The outstanding success of IPM 2013 is marked by the international spirit.

“Here once again, important networks were strengthened and impressive technical and product innovations were introduced. I am already looking forward to next year!”

According to the organisers 92 per cent of the visitors and of the exhibitors thus already stated that they will be involved in IPM ESSEN 2014 which will take place at Messe Essen from 28-31 January 2014.
