Paperworld: International trade fair for stationery, office supplies and writing instruments

All the trends and industry innovations come together in one place at Paperworld. For major brand manufacturers or international newcomers, Paperworld, with its unique product diversity, is a very important industry meeting point and source of inspiration for the wholesale and retail trade as well as for corporate buyers.

Paperworld 2022: Be there!

At Paperworld, everything related to stationery, office supplies and writing instruments is divided into the two areas Office and Stationery: Office covers commercial office supplies, whereas Stationery concerns paper and stationery products for private use.

‘The current policy decision of the Hessen State Government sets out from Monday 22 November 2021 regulations inter alia for events which reflect the hospitalisation rate. At the moment this would mean ‘2G’ rules for Paperworld (admission only for participants with proof of vaccinated or recovered status). Formnext has currently impressed upon us that international trade fairs are also successfully held under ‘2G’ conditions.

The rules also mean that restrictions may be lifted again as soon as the hospitalisation rate has reliably diminished.

We are therefore very confident about Paperworld in January 2022. Nevertheless: be prepared. Get vaccinated. We look forward to seeing you.’

We are therefore looking forward all the more hopefully to the year 2022 to make up for this at Paperworld.’

‘During the last two years, it was with great regret that we had no "trade show" platform. In the end, digital events are not an adequate substitute for the atmosphere of Paperworld. Therefore, we are all the more pleased to be able to actively participate again in the "resurrection" of Paperworld.’

Tim Schuberth, Sales Manager, Grafik Werkstatt | Becker & Becker Vertriebs GmbH & Co. KG
