The world's largest horticultural trade show

IPM ESSEN presents the most innovative ideas and practices in horticulture with a laser focus on gardening tools and services. The international trade show exists in a position as a leader not just by always representing the entire value chain, but because it functions as an incredible procurement platform that’s been steadily growing since its launch in 1983.

IPM ESSEN (sometimes referred to as IPM Germany) has put down its roots all over Europe, which has then prompted the creation of satellite events in Moscow, Beijing, Dubai and Bangalore. Visitors are treated to a full lineup of products, which cover fruit cultivation techniques, lifting equipment, commercial vehicles, shop fittings, irrigation systems and a lot of plant species presented from seeds and bulbs to fully grown plants.


The event will occur as a live event in 2025 between 28.01.2025 and 31.01.2025. The event will take place at Messe Essen as a live exhibition, without strict COVID-19 prevention measures in place. This is due to the removal of the country's pandemic-related restrictions.

Because IPM ESSEN acts as a trend setter it always arrives first thin on the calendar year with the second half of January customarily being the time editions take place. The trade show happens on an annual basis at Messe Essen, which is also the official organiser for the event, and admission is strictly for trade visitors.

Over the course of four days in total, doors are open from 09:00 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon. Zentralverband Gartenbau e.V. ZVG functions as an official partner and supporter of the event.

Messe Essen enjoys a central location in the city, which makes it easy to reach through service from the airport, a car or a taxi, or the city rail system that has a station right next door to the exhibition grounds.
