International Toy Fair Nuernberg 2012 starts on new date

Logo New Start 2012 (Download see below)
  • New opening times: Wednesday to Monday, 1-6.2.2012
  • Toy sector pleased about more consecutive workdays

The coming Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair Nürnberg starts a day earlier than before. Exhibitors and visitors now meet at the world’s biggest get-together for the toy industry starting Wednesday, 1 Feb 2012. The fair organizer – Spielwarenmesse eG – is introducing the new date in response to requests from many exhibitors and visitors. These were in favour of starting the fair earlier in the week, as this gives them more consecutive workdays. In the past years, the International Toy Fair took place from Thursday to Tuesday.

To make it easy for visitors and exhibitors to memorize the new fair date, Spielwarenmesse eG has developed the online game Ready to go?. In the game at www.toyfair.de/ready-to-go, players must find their way to the toy fair by car through a maze of roads – and as quickly as possible. Every month one of the players can win a night’s hotel accommodation worth 250 euros. The raffle takes place on the first Wednesday of each month, starting now. All players will take part in a raffle for the main prize – an iPad2 – on the first Wednesday in February.

Due to the new date of the fair, the accompanying events will start as follows:

Thursday, 26.1.2012:  Main press conference
Tuesday, 31.1.2012: PressPreview, opening ceremony
Wednesday, 1.2.2012: Fair starts, ToyNight
