The organisers of Eisenwarenmesse 2016 in Cologne have hailed a successful event with “Crowded aisles and full order books”.
Closing on 8th March, the three-day show attracted around 44,000 trade visitors from 124 countries (including estimations for the last day of the fair).
"We are delighted about the outstanding result of EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair 2016. The DIY Boulevard was an absolute highlight. The stands were well-attended", summed up Katharina C. Hamma, Chief Operating Officer of Koelnmesse.
"As a result of the conceptual changes and the integration of further industry themes such as E-Commerce, the quality of the event was further improved and convinced both the trade visitors and the exhibitors."
