One-time postponement of ISM to 23 - 25 April 2023
ISM will be postponed once next year from the end of January to the new date of 23 - 25 April 2023. In this way, Koelnmesse is taking into account the wishes of the associations sponsoring ISM. The entire sweets and snacks industry is currently facing extreme challenges with dramatic cost explosions for raw materials, energy and logistics as well as an almost incalculable consumer behaviour, according to the associations. The industry now hopes that the difficult situation will calm down and that there will be much better planning certainty at the later date of the fair in April 2023.
