International Green Week:
our history

A fair with quite a story to tell

The 100th birthday is not far off. A look back at an eventful history is worthwhile. In the mid-1920s (1926), the IGW opened its doors for the first time.

A lot has happened since then, a rapid journey from mechanization in agriculture through the war and post-war period to the times of the economic miracle began. After the reunification of Germany, the IGW was able to welcome exhibitors and visitors from all over Germany for the first time in many decades. What a joy that was. Since the 2000s, aspects of digitalization and globalization, as well as sustainability ideas, have taken on an increasingly influential role within the IGW theme worlds. We are excited to see how the journey will continue.
