International Hardware Fair Italy promises great opportunities 22 May 2024

International Hardware Fair Italy returns on 8th – 9th May 2025 in Bergamo, strengthened by the success recorded in the 2024 edition of EISENWARENMESSE.

A second edition with high expectations will be held in May 2025, alternating in odd years with EISENWARENMESSE. In a continuously changing market, and an evolving international panorama that offers challenges and opportunities, the new edition’s main topics are the advent of Artificial Intelligence, sector trends and the development of European distribution. 

Professionals from the hardware, DIY, garden and outdoor, safety, building, and fastener sectors, as well as electrical and industrial supplies from all over Europe, will meet again in Italy. 

 “A year ago we took on an important challenge, to build an all-Italian exhibition but with a European vocation to give voice to this sector, best expressing the strength of Italian companies – and the market proved us right. The first edition’s results were beyond our expectations, with more than 5,300 visitors from 30 countries. The location in Bergamo was also of great success with a modern structure, as well as being easy to reach from Italy and Europe,” comments Thomas Rosolia, CEO at Koelnmesse Italia.

Early bird tariffs for registrations are available until 31st May 2024.
