Wednesday to Sunday!
31 Jan – 4 Feb 2018
As its 70th anniversary approaches, the Spielwarenmesse has yet another reason to celebrate: The contracts for the permanent exhibitors in Hall 12.2 of Nuremberg’s Exhibition Centre have been extended by another five years. By taking this step, trade-fair organiser Spielwarenmesse eG is sending out an important signal, securing the future of its major event at this valued venue. The eminent exhibitors at the permanent stands have reciprocated by placing their trust in the world’s leading toy trade fair well into the future.
The coveted spaces are located on the upper floor of NCC West and are open to trade buyers. They are used by reputed toy companies as showrooms or for special events all year round – and, of course, for the Spielwarenmesse earlier in the year. Spielwarenmesse eG has extended the existing contracts with its permanent exhibitors until 30 June 2023. The 13,700 m² exhibition area is currently occupied by 27 companies, two thirds of whom have been there right from the start. Rubie's Masquerade has been the most recent addition to the ranks. The UK company, which claims to be the world’s biggest supplier of fancy-dress costumes, moved into Hall 12.2 on 1 July.
The permanent stands have been a showpiece at the Spielwarenmesse for the past 20 years. The innovative concept celebrated its debut in 1998 in the then newly built west wing of the exhibition centre. In 2012, the hall was completely refurbished in a project that lasted six months. Its modern appearance with two long promenades and a generous use of glass appeals to domestic and international exhibitors wanting to present their products and innovations in a unique light in the Multi-Product Group. The individually designed spaces also give them the opportunity to hold meetings and business talks in a quiet environment during the hustle and bustle of the fair.
