Legal and plagiarism

The IPR Council (Intellectual Property Rights Council) at Spielwarenmesse® is a service for the protection of intellectual property and facilitates out-of-court settlement of complaints concerning the protection of exhibitors’ industrial property rights. The purpose of the council is to clarify violations of such rights by products exhibited and/or offered by other exhibitors during the fair.

The organiser’s intention is that this service helps to resolve such disputes between the parties involved without delay and without adversely affecting the course of the fair.

Complaints will be accepted from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at NCC West, floor 1, ExhibitorsLounge daily for the duration of Spielwarenmesse®.

Donation project

Many exhibitors traditionally donate toys for needy children at the end of Spielwarenmesse®. In 2019 we support again the SOS Children’s Villages with these donations. The donated toys benefit both the SOS Children’s Villages and the day centres of SOS Children’s Villages for children and juveniles in Germany.

Some of the donated toys are also given to nurseries and social institutions in the Nuremberg region.

Would you like to contribute too? Then please support our project by donating your toys.

Procedure for the donation campaign

  • You receive a donation appeal from us during Spielwarenmesse®.
  • If you would like to take part in our project, you receive a certificate of participation that you can hang in a prominent position on your stand.
  • We collect your donations on the last day of Spielwarenmesse®.
