Visitors and exhibitors of the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR can look forward to a lot of innovations and news in 2016. In addition to focusing on a compact three day show (March 6 through March 8, 2016), the EISENWARENMESSE – INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR celebrates its 40th edition and for the very first time introduces a presentation area for DIY providers in cooperation with the manufacturers’ association “Haus & Garten e.V.” (Homes & Garden).

The 210 meter long DIY Boulevard runs right through the middle of the hall which traditionally houses companies from the construction and DIY sector. In addition, a networking area, directly adjacent to the DIY Boulevard, is available for meeting purposes – the perfect place for interesting and constructive conversations between trade visitors and the top players in the construction, home & garden industries.

Christoph Werner, Senior Vice President of Koelnmesse, is confident that these newly introduced features will be successful: “With the DIY Boulevard, we are offering a format that is optimally suited to the needs of the exhibitors. In this area, they have the possibility to address the decision-makers in a very efficient and focused way”. Registrations for the DYI Boulevard confirm the success of the new concept: The area is already fully booked. Among others, industry leaders such as Abus, Burg-Wächter, Fischer, Getalit, Hettich, Leifheit, Mellerud, Steinel, Tesa, TOX and Westag have already confirmed.

“We are convinced that the DIY Boulevard will provide positive stimuli at the show, thanks to the fact that the top players of the industry are participating and that the area is already booked out”, emphasizes the Executive Director of the Manufacturers’ Association Haus & Garten e.V., Ralf Rahmede.

The EISENWARENMESSE 2016 will be open to trade visitors from 6 through 8 March, 2016, from 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. For more information visit our homepage: http://www.eisenwarenmesse.com.
