Our future project „Koelnmesse 3.0“ is making progress and for the first time now has a visible impact on ISM.
In the scope of „Koelnmesse 3.0”, the world’s most attractive inner-city exhibition centre shall be created by 2030 in Cologne. In the West of halls 4 and 5, construction works for the new hall 1plus are well under way and will be finished in autumn this year. ISM will therefore use hall 1plus starting from ISM 2021, substituting hall 2, which will no longer be used by ISM. Hall 1plus is pillar-free with a ceiling height of 11m and offers exhibitors and visitors of ISM 2021 a state-of-the-art trade fair experience.
Another change concerns hall 5.2. Here, ProSweets Cologne‘s ingredients section will be allocated a space of about 1,000 m² in direct vicinity to the ISM Trend Court with its Expert Stage, Sweet Trends presented by Innova Market Insights and the start-up area. The „Ingredients and raw materials” area, a section strong in innovation, will strengthen the trend and innovation character of hall 5.2. In combination with the Trend Court, the young Trend Snacks and Natural Snacks areas, the new Ingredients section will contribute to the inspiration and innovation character of hall 5.2.
