Past Editions

2021 Edition

IDS 2021 occurred as a hybrid event at Messe Cologne between 22.09.2021 and 25.09.2021. The edition was attended by 830 exhibitors and over 23 000 trade visitors. 72% of visitors and 53% of exhibitors were from countries such as France and Italy. The event consisted of a digital platform IDSConnect and an in-person exhibition. Attendants were able to examine many innovations in person and enjoy face-to-face interactions for the first time since the pandemic. Many attendants opted to use the digital platform, to search out potential new connections or watch the event programme. The edition was one of the foremost editions according to participants. Because of its success, organisers will proceed with the organisation of the 2023 rendition. The said edition will occur as an in-person event at Messe Cologne between 14.03.2023 and 18.03.2023.
