“Speakers Corner” and “Buyers’ Day” Featured on Monday

Exhibitors will be given an opportunity to present their company and product offerings to a wide audience in the “Speakers Corner”. Trade visitors can ask “What's new?”, “What's special?” and can pose any other questions they would like to have answered in an open discussion format. The Speakers Corner presentations take place at the hardware forum in passage 4/5. In line with the fair's high level of internationality, the core content will also be interpreted simultaneously into English.
Purchasing optimization at its best - that is what the BME Buyers' Day promises. It is due to take place on 10 March in passage 4/5. Trade visitors can look forward to interesting presentations on quality, eProcurement, article management, energy sourcing and supplier management. The BME (Federal Association of Material Management, Purchasing and Logistics) is holding this special information day for all interested buyers, in particular those from the industry. Visitors do not need to register to take part.

The 'Buyers' Day' matchmaking program, which is organized by the Home Improvement Industry Presidents Council in cooperation with the Koelnmesse, will also be held again at the EISENWARENMESSE - International Hardware Fair Cologne 2014. Here, the DIY trade - primarily from North America - and internationally operating producers will gather to take part in one-on-one meetings.
