Wednesday to Sunday!
31 Jan – 4 Feb 2018
Advance ticket sales for the Spielwarenmesse 2020 will begin in the autumn. As a platform for networking, information gathering and deal making, there is no more effective event for the international toy sector than the world’s leading trade fair in Nuremberg. Tickets will be available for international trade visitors from 1 October. Since we always have our smartphones to hand nowadays, a mobile ticket is the simple and practical way to gain admission. Thus equipped, visitors can then prepare their visit to the trade fair directly online as well, thanks to the organiser’s useful services for everything from hotel bookings to exhibitor appointments.
It pays in many ways to buy a ticket in advance. Thanks to instantly available mobile admission tickets, trade visitors have an even simpler and faster way to get their ticket. The paperless alternative can be easily accessed via smartphone whenever necessary. And trade visitors no longer need to leave time to queue for a ticket on arrival at the exhibition grounds. Advance admission tickets are also valid on indicated event days as a travel pass on all public transport in the Transport for Greater Nuremberg (VGN) network (regional passenger rail services: 2nd class, trains without supplement) in the 100/200 tariff zones (Nuremberg, Fürth, Stein). There is also an early bird discount up to 27 January 2020.
A successful trade fair visit requires thorough preparation of everything from your journey and finding your way around to meeting key business partners. Many online services already make it easier to organise these in advance. For example, a personal appointment calendar can be created in order to arrange meetings with exhibitors beforehand. Trade visitors can plan their visit using the clearly designed exhibitor database on both the Spielwarenmesse website and app, in which they can filter by search criteria such as product group and subcategory. The interactive hall plan offers a good overview of the exhibition grounds.
Hotels can also be booked online. The Spielwarenmesse Partner Hotel Programme offers reasonably-priced accommodation in Nuremberg. Other hotels in the greater metropolitan region can be found on booking.com. The Airbnb online platform is another place to find private rooms or apartments, depending on what is required. After the trade fair closes its doors for the evening, the ToyCity of Nuremberg offers trade fair visitors a great choice of establishments to suit their preferences.
