Travel to Germany
Cologne is well prepared to welcome its trade fair guests and to offer them the best possible quality of stay, which is also pleasant under the current conditions. Public life is functioning - with strict observance of official regulations and with responsible behavior on the part of citizens and out-of-town guests.
In addition to the presence exhibition, ISM 2022 offers exhibitors and visitors the digital platform ISM @home. The hybrid approach enables visitors from all over the world, who are unable to travel to the fair, to discover attractive trade fair profiles and products and to get in touch with their contacts via innovative channels. After all, whether at the trade show or in everyday business, a company's success is based on three fundamental building blocks: Inspiration, exchange and business. Where these aspects currently fall short, ISM @home now opens up additional opportunities. Comprehensive functions make it easy to reach more potential customers, experience trends and presentations on demand, and make valuable contacts completely independent of where you are.
