The Eisenwarenmesse, which was due to take place in Cologne from 1 March 2020, has been postponed to 21- 24 February 2021.

The decision was taken as a response to the developing global health situation caused by coronavirus. As the epidemic is growing, exhibitors from the tool industry have reiterated their great concern for the health of their employees.

In view of these current developments and the high share of Asian exhibitors at the Hardware Fair, the management team has set a new date in consultation with the industry.

Some 3,000 exhibitors, including around 1,200 from China, had been expected to attend the fair, the world’s leading innovation and business platform for the hardware industry that is held every two years in Cologne.

Registered exhibitors and visitors are now being notified of the postponement.
