Prepare your visit to the fair now

11 Nov 2021

Planning for Christmasworld, Paperworld, Creativeworld and Ambiente 2022 is in full swing. From now on, exhibitors and visitors can prepare specifically for their visit to the fair because the exhibitor search and the ticket shop are online. To ensure a safe stay and a smooth journey, the internet pages have been updated with information on the protection and hygiene concept.

First, Christmasworld, Paperworld and Creativeworld will open their doors from 28/29 January to 1 February 2022 and present their product ranges for seasonal decorations, paper, office supplies and stationery as well as hobbies and handicrafts. Ambiente will follow from 11 to 15 February 2022 with its focus on the table setting, kitchen and housewares, furnishing and decoration accessories, living concepts, gift articles as well as jewellery and fashion accessories

Ticket shop now open

The ticket shop for all four consumer goods fairs is now available online. An important change from previous years is that only online tickets can be purchased for the trade fairs. In 2022, there will be no on-site box offices due to the Corona measures in force. In addition, all tickets are not only personalised but also only valid for a specific individual day of visit. The visit date can be selected when purchasing tickets. This ensures that not too many people are on the fairgrounds at the same time.

In addition to the admission ticket, one of the following documents must also be shown in each case for admission to the fairgrounds: Covid 19 vaccination certificate, convalescent certificate or valid test certificate. In addition, a photo ID will be checked for data match.

Use exhibitor search as a presentation platform

All consumergoods fairs offer a diverse and inspiring range of products, which can be clearly accessed online in the exhibitor search - this is now also online. Here, visitors can search directly for the name of an exhibitor or find information on the range of products within a product group. It is also possible to filter by countries, halls or special interests such as "sustainability".

The advantage for visitors and exhibitors is that the deposited exhibitor business profile can be accessed online and at any time from now until the next event in 2023. It is therefore important that exhibitors enter all data about their company and also deposit product images, descriptions and contact information. The exhibitor search is a digital business card for companies on more than 365 days and a valuable orientation for visitors to plan their visit to the fair or to make contact online.

Protection and hygiene concept for safe trade fair visits

Messe Frankfurt's protection and hygiene concept is used for Christmasworld, Paperworld and Creativeworld as well as Ambiente. It was developed in cooperation with the responsible authorities of the State of Hesse and with the recommendations of the Robert Koch Institute and is regularly adapted to current conditions. The safety of all exhibitors, visitors, partners and employees has top priority.

Measures include 100 per cent fresh air supply in the exhibition halls, generous design of halls and entrances to maintain safety distances, intensive cleaning measures, a hygiene-adapted catering concept and the wearing of mouth and nose protection.

Information on the protection and hygiene concept as well as travel/admission to the grounds can be found here:
