EISENWARENMESSE – Hardware Fair Cologne on course for success
EISENWARENMESSE – International Hardware Fair Cologne 2016 announced new conceptual moves, at the beginning of the year, including a changed schedule and premiere of the DIY Boulevard.
Plans are already beginning to pay off with organisers announcing they had already received over 15 per cent more registrations than for the same period of the previous year and 12 per cent of the exhibition space was already sold. Registrations had already been received from renowned exhibitors from home and abroad, including several returnee exhibitors.
Compared to the same period of the previous year, the level of internationality has also increased by over 15 percent.
Exhibitors that have already registered for the fair include: Apex, Beta, Ega Master, Gedore, Hazet, Knipex, Kukko, Pferd Rüggeberg, Rhodius, Rothenberger, Saint Gobain, Stabila, Stahlwille, Tyrolit, Umarex, Utensili, Wera-Werk, Wiha, Witte and Wolfcraft.
Among the prominent returnee exhibitors, 3M Germany, Hailo, Sola Messwerkzeuge and TOX-Dübel-Technik are all listed as exhibitors.
Traditionally, the tool area forms the strongest product group, however the Fixing & Fastening Technologies/Fittings, Home Improvement and Industrial Supply segments have all received an improved result, in comparison to the end of the early bird booking phase of the previous event.
