IPM Essen looks at the future of horticulture and landscaping

IPM Essen will take place at Messe Essen from January 22 to 25, 2019. The fair will portray the entire spectrum in the green sector. Specifically for horticulture and landscaping, IPM Essen 2019 will offer a wide range of plants, forums and information about new services.

Amongst the around 1,600 exhibitors from almost 50 nations, there will be numerous appearances at the fair which will be interesting especially to horticulturalists and landscapers. With a proportion of more than 60 percent of the range on offer, plants will form one main focal point on the entire exhibition site. As a supplement to this, information will be provided by a supporting programme: This will include the Future Congress on Horticulture and Landscaping and the specialist event entitled "Urban Green Areas in the (Climate) Change" which will be part of the EU campaign called "Green Cities for a Sustainable Europe".

From classic to extravagant - Ornamental plants and tree nursery goods
Halls 1 and 2, half of Hall 4, Halls 6, 7, 8 and 8B, the Galleria as well as the Foyer of the Grugahalle will show plants in all shapes and colours - not only well-known classics but also new breeds. Tree nurseries and horticultural businesses from all over the world will be in situ in order to introduce their portfolios. No matter whether seasonal bedding plants, perennial shrubs, colourful ornamental bushes or hardy woody plants - horticulturalists and landscapers will find a diverse range for all designing needs. In particular, robust and climate-tolerant plants will play primary roles at IPM Essen 2019. The Technology area in Hall 3 and in half of Hall 4 will also be a popular contact point for horticulture and landscaping. Here, there will be not only soils and fertilisers as well as plastic undersoil films but also small appliances and tools. Moreover, suppliers of software will introduce innovative services.

Future forum on horticulture and landscaping
Many products and services which are shown at IPM Essen today will find users in everyday working life tomorrow. The event which will relate to horticultural and landscaping outlooks and will bear the title "New Work" will also take up the subject of what the world of work will look like in the future. What will await the branch of trade? How will life and work change? The forum will take place in the South Congress Centre from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, January 24, 2019. It will be dedicated to the fashionable expression "New Work" and will ask: What does that mean and what is hidden behind it? The speakers will approach the subject by considering it from different perspectives. They will include the publisher Dr. Florian Langenscheidt and the presenter Tjen Onaran. The other speakers will be Tanja Nackmayr, Managing Director for Education and Labour Market Policies at the Entrepreneurs of North Rhine-Westphalia, and Tjards Wendebourg, Editor-in-Chief at DEGA Galabau. The event will be accompanied by the graphic recording of the artist Dagmar Gosejacob. This will constitute drawn live documentation which will summarise core statements into one large-format picture. Participation will cost 50 euros for members of the North Rhine-Westphalia Association for Horticulture, Landscaping and Sports Field Construction and 100 euros for non-members. The fee will include the admission to the fair which can be visited after the event.

"Urban Green Areas in the (Climate) Change"
The EU campaign called "Green Cities for a Sustainable Europe" will network municipal decision takers, urban planners, landscape architects, horticulturalists as well as landscapers from all over Europe for green urban development. Against this background, the Federation of German Tree Nurseries (BdB) will, in cooperation with "The Green City" foundation, invite people into the West Congress Centre on January 23 for the discussion about the future subject of "Urban Green Areas in the (Climate) Change". Here, specialists in horticulture will learn what varieties will be able to survive in urban green areas in the future. The lecture subjects will include "Urban Planning of the Future: From Grey Facades to Green Lungs" and "Old and New Ranges of Woody Plants in the Climate Change". Registration by January 18 at:
