The Special Area located at Entrance Mitte gave exhibitors a secondary space to display their non-book ranges which are of particular relevance to booksellers. The ways in which the products might best be presented at the POS has also been illustrated. Of the twelve product groups at the Spielwarenmesse®, these areas were of particular interest to booksellers:

Our programme of presentations for booksellers daily from Wednesday to Saturday
