Webinars by Spielwarenmesse offer condensed information about the fair

  • Free online training from October to December 2016
  • Topics: Fair preparation, organisation and follow-up

Preparations for the Spielwarenmesse are in full swing. Irrespective of whether an exhibitor is experienced or appearing for the first time - every now and then questions about the fair will inevitably arise. How can I design my stand so that it is pleasing on the eye? How do I follow up my appearance at the fair effectively? Answers to these questions and more are provided by Daniel Gundelach, Trade Fair Marketing Director and Consultant at stand construction and consulting firm Meplan, together with Marlene Hösch from Spielwarenmesse eG. The free webinars are taking place from 19 October to 14 December 2016, providing valuable tips for a successful appearance at the Spielwarenmesse 2017.

Extended e-learning opportunities for exhibitors
The benefit: These webinars can be viewed in the convenience of the workplace - and can be followed by a virtual discussion with experts. In response to the high demand of recent years, the seminar programme has been extended. Ernst Kick, CEO of Spielwarenmesse eG, explains: “This year, we’ve decided to complement our five-part webinar series about the trade fair with an online training programme about the Spielwarenmesse PressPreview. Together with our expert Andreas Pfeiffer, Daniel Gundelach sheds light on how exhibitors can get their products on the radar of the international press at our press-only event.” The annual PressPreview takes place the day before the Spielwarenmesse opens for business. International journalists will be given the exclusive opportunity on 31 January 2017 to be the first to view the latest toy innovations.
