Paperworld FAQ

On this page you will find the answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) about the new consumer goods fairs concept in Frankfurt.

In recent years, structural changes in the market and in the exhibitor structure, as well as a growing globalization, have accompanied the entire consumer goods sector.

These changes as well as the fact that lifestyles (Home & Office) are merging have led us to reflect this within the concept of the consumer goods fairs in Frankfurt.

The answer: Home of Consumer Goods.

In future, the three leading international trade fairs Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld will be held parallel in Frankfurt on the same date: 3/4 until 7 February 2023

From 2023, the Paperworld product groups will have a home at the world's biggest international consumer goods event. The individual product segments of Paperworld will be presented at the leading international trade fairs Ambiente (with the areas Dining, Living, Giving and NEW: Working), as well as at Christmasworld and Creativeworld.

In the Stationery (Gift) segment, there are major overlaps with the Ambiente product groups. In future, these themes will be brought together under one roof and thus offer the best possible orientation for visitors. The Office theme will be presented within the strong new area Ambiente Working. The new concept thus offers manufacturers and retailers the best possible synergies and the opportunity to establish contacts with completely new customer groups.

In future, the individual Paperworld product segments will be presented at the leading international trade fairs Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld in a target-group and theme-specific manner. The office product segments (office supplies and equipment, office papers, Remanexpo, Future of Work) will find their new home in the new Ambiente Working living environment in Hall 4.2. Stationery and school articles complement the product mix of Ambiente Giving. In the Giving section, Ambiente will occupy Hall 4.0 with Gifts & School and Hall 4.1 with Urban Gifts & Stationery. The packaging and ribbons product segments are closely linked to the theme of celebrating and giving and will therefore be presented at Christmasworld in Hall 6.1 in future. Creative writing, painting and drawing utensils will expand the Creativeworld portfolio in future in Halls 1.1 and 1.2.

Here, everything revolves around office supplies including printer consumables (including remanufacturing - Remanexpo) and office equipment - with regard to the classic office, mobile working, home office, co-working spaces and Future of Work. In future, Ambiente Working will thus comprise a sub-section of Paperworld, primarily the office area and Remanexpo - not the entire range. You can read how the other product groups are divided up in the following question / answer.

As part of the new concept, our aim is to implement clear hall structures with effective visitor guidance – in order to create new synergies and enable possibilities for new contacts. In addition to the products the market segment and sales channels are also taken into account when assigning the product areas within the new hall layout.

By clicking on the product area of your company here, you will be taken directly to the relevant product area at Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld.

You can register online on the websites from mid-March. If you have exhibited at Paperworld 2020 or registered for 2021 or 2022, you will automatically receive an invitation to register with a link to your personal registration form.

You will receive the early bird discount with an online registration until 08 April 2022.

The hall allocation is determined by the products, the market segment and the sales channels of the exhibiting company. Within the hall, stand positioning depends - as in the past - among other things on the internal structure of the respective hall, the desired stand dimensions and the availability of space or demand.

Based on your online registration, we will contact you from May/June 2022 (which is when hall planning will start) with a stand space proposal. You can register for your participation online from mid-March.

If the focus of your product presentation/ your product range corresponds to the event concept  of the respective trade fair, you are welcome to do so. For a second booth you can then also register online at the respective event.

Yes, you can book your complete stand with your online registration from mid-March 2022. At that time you will find detailed information on the stand packages on the respective event website.

As soon as we have received your registration and have been able to classify the hall allocation, the respective contact person will get in touch with you. You can also find all contact persons here.

Ambiente

Christmasworld

Creativeworld

The strong trade fair brands Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld will remain as trade fairs with their familiar names. "Home of Consumer Goods" is merely a motto that describes the new association.

Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld will be held in parallel in Frankfurt am Main every year from 2023. The combination is a forward-looking and ongoing concept that brings together the markets and sectors in the international consumer-goods sector at one time and in one place.

Digital supplements to physical trade fairs have become indispensable and provide ideal added value in 2023 and in the years to come. We think of digital supplement formats in the long term and not just in terms of the circumstances during the Corona Pandemic. They are valuable additional options for exhibitors and visitors to get additional added value and to be able to network in parallel to the trade fairs. Digital formats are also planned beyond this and are an important addition in the current business year in order to always have one's finger on the pulse of the times, trends, topics and markets. With this offer, the online exhibitor search, the Conzoom SolutionsT platform for the trade and NextradeT, the digital order fair for Home & Living, you are networked 365 days a year and always up-to-date. Additional information is available on the Ambiente blog and on the social media channels.
