For four days, around 3,000 suppliers from more than 55 countries will present tools, products from the industrial supply, fasteners and fixings, fittings and home improvement segments. The product offering of the exhibitors is complemented by an extensive and diverse event programme that offers themes and occasions for communication that move the industry.

This March, the EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair Cologne will present itself not only with a new hall and more square metres. In addition to this, the segments will be distributed equally over all halls. The largest product offering is still the Tool section in halls 2, 4, 5, 10 and 11. The theme of Industrial Supply can once again be found in halls 2 – 5, while exhibitors of the Fasteners and Fixings and Home Improvement segments will present themselves in halls 2 – 5 and 11. With this structure, trade visitors will profit more from the unification with the other segments and the synergies resulting from this.
