GEESTE, Germany: Klasmann-Deilmann, a leading corporate group in the international substrate industry, has announced it will not be exhibiting at the IPM Essen show in January 2021.
In the light of recent developments concerning the Covid-19 virus, the company says it prefers to give priority to the safety and well-being of its employees, business partners and trade show visitors.
In an act of solidarity and kindness to trade show organiser Messe Essen and the entire horticultural value chain, Klasmann-Deilmann has decided that, regardless their decision, they will pay Messe Essen for their stand. The group will present innovations in horticultural substrates using a digital format. More details will follow.

On every continent, their growing media provide a vital basis for the growth of fruit, vegetables, edible mushrooms, ornamental plants, trees, and shrubs. They help ensure the success of the company’s partners and customers in the commercial horticulture sector.
