With seven months to go, Christmasworld is already ‘well booked-up’, according to the trade show’s organizer Messe Frankfurt.
Already signed to exhibit at the next international trade fair for seasonal and festive decoration, which takes places in Frankfurt from January 27 to 31 2017, are, for example, Edelman, Exotica Cor Mulder, DPI, Pusteblume, Gilde-Handwerk Macrander, Gnosjö Konstsmide, Inge’s Christmas Decor and MK Illumination.
Director Eva Olbrich said: “That is a fantastic result at this stage and represents a huge challenge at the same time.
‘We even have, at the moment, more requests than we have places available. We are doing our best to find suitable stand locations to meet all the requests.
“By the time the show starts, a number of things may have shifted round a bit, but the basic planning and layout for a total of six halls is now complete.
“Over the last few years, the Christmasworld concept, with its precise focus on Christmas and festive decoration, has proved its worth as a reliable business platform for manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, as well as for professional bulk buyers.
“We can see this in the increasing numbers of exhibitors and visitors, as well as in the high levels of satisfaction expressed in the exhibitor and visitor polls.”
In Hall 8.0, you will be able to find products for Florists’ Requisites and Garden Decoration, Candles and Fragrances as well as Ribbons and Wrapping. Hall 9.0 is home to Florists’ Requisites and Garden Decoration, together with Seasonal Decoration. Hall 9.1 will present Seasonal Decoration & Gifts, as well as Christmas & Advent. Asian Christmas & Decoration is in Hall 9.2.
Hall 11.0 will provide a display for Christmas & Advent, together with Visual Merchandising & Lighting. In Hall 11.1 there will be the launch of ‘Floradecora’: a new product segment for fresh flowers and decorative plants.
At the last show, 966 exhibitors from 45 countries showed their wares to over 37,000 buyers from 114 countries.
Trade visitors included buyers from a range of wholesale and retail companies, including garden centres, building suppliers and DIY stores, florists, furniture and furnishing companies, gift shops, glass, porcelain and ceramics retailers, household goods and toiletries stores, perfume shops and food stores – as well as buyers for shopping centres, municipal and local authorities, restaurateurs, hotels, event agencies, shop-window designers, interior furnishings experts, designers and decorators.
Christmasworld is characterised by the complete spectrum of festive decorations, complemented by a programme of special exhibitions, events and lectures.
