Paperworld Office Village: successful concept to be continued in 2022

16 Nov 2021

The successful concept continues: Paperworld Office Village will be offered again at the trade fair in 2022. In the specially developed area, companies from the office sector can present themselves in a high-quality environment. Eleven brand-name companies have already registered for the area.

The Paperworld Office Village was already convincing in 2020 with its unique concept in Hall 3.0. It will be offered there again from 29 January to 1 February 2022 and, in addition to the exhibitor stands, will offer an info point, lounges and meeting rooms for networking as well as its own catering area. "We have developed this concept to offer manufacturers an attractive presentation platform in the heart of the office section of Paperworld. What is special about the Paperworld Office Village are the fully equipped stands. The open design of the area and the central lounge area for exchanging ideas with trade visitors, which was highly praised in 2020, will also be back," says Eva Olbrich, director Paperworld.

The concept is once again meeting with a positive response from the industry, as brand-name companies like Durable Hunke & Jochheim GmbH & Co KG, Edding International GmbH, HAN Bürogeräte GmbH & Co. KG, Jakob Maul GmbH, Krug & Priester GmbH & Co KG, Legamaster GmbH, Novus Dahle GmbH, Schmidt Technology GmbH, Schneider Schreibgeräte GmbH, Sigel GmbH and Tesa SE have already registered for stand space in the Paperworld Office Village.

 "With its unusual concept, the Office Village is the perfect place to meet with our business partners and new customers on the one hand and to generate business. On the other hand, there will be the opportunity to talk to sales colleagues from other well-known manufacturers who will be presenting themselves in the Office Village in order to exchange information about their experiences and strategies for coping with the pandemic, among other things," says Bruno Stegmaier, Head of Sales, Krug & Priester GmbH & Co. KG.

Andreas Helmis, Managing Director, Edding Vertrieb GmbH, also praises the Office Village concept: "For us, the Office Village is an attractive presentation platform that enables us to showcase our brands and business units together in one place. It offers visitors the opportunity to visit many major brand companies in one area. We look forward to presenting new interesting products, inspirations and PoS solutions to the fair visitors."

Rolf Schifferens, Managing Director, Durable Hunke & Jochheim GmbH & Co KG, emphasises the advantages for visitors: "We expect great added value in the design of the Office Village for the benefit of our customers. As several exhibitors are located here in the immediate vicinity, the visit is all the more worthwhile as many discussions can be held on the spot."

"We are pleased to be able to return to direct dialogue with our customers and partners after the long period with home offices and video conferences," concludes Stefan Koritke, Managing Director, Legamaster GmbH.

There are still a few places available in the Paperworld Office Village. These can be booked through the Paperworld team.
