Perfect mix of major manufacturers and small suppliers
The 70th anniversary edition of the Spielwarenmesse from 30 January to 3 February 2019 has major changes in store for the product segments Model Railway and Accessories and Model Construction, Hobby. As of next year, both groups will be merged into the new, single product group Model Railway and Model Construction in Halls 7 and 7A.
The international diversity of both industries will thus be reflected in one location. Major brand manufacturers, such as Tamiya, Märklin, NOCH and Bachmann, and small niche suppliers will come together to offer an optimal mix of products for trade buyers. Moreover, the profile of the Model Construction segment will be given a sharper definition. Manufacturers whose products are more relevant to the toy trade in the classical sense will switch to the Electronic Toys category in Hall 4A.
Besides model railways in all gauges, and accessories for building dioramas and scenery, the new product group also features model construction sets, die cast models and innovative RC and RTR models. Hall 7A will likewise host the special area for small series manufacturers, who will round off the wide spectrum of products with their more unusual model railways and accessories. Ernst Kick, CEO of the Spielwarenmesse, explains: “By merging Model Railways and Model Construction we’re resetting and strengthening both segments. We’re creating a product group that is equipped for the future and reflects the interests of our trade visitors.” This latest move has been met with a positive response from exhibitors. Hall 7A is already nearly fully booked with just a few spaces to spare.
