Do you want to know what the trends of tomorrow will be? The Paperworld supporting program provides answers to this question on every day of the trade fair. We have summarized all the events in the Stationery area for you here.
Mr Books & Mrs Paper: Special exhibition for booksellers
What we buy and where we shop is increasingly an expression of an individual lifestyle. Mr Books & Mrs Paper presents selected products in different scenarios.
With the right combination of books and non-book products, you can create brand-new shopping experiences for your customers. Areas can be installed in any shop that are suitable as display stages for product presentations. Not every merchandise presentation necessarily involves a lot of effort. Great and effective displays are also possible with less input. The special exhibition "Mr Books & Mrs Paper" in hall 5.1 illustrates how products can best be showcased for the customer. An individual shopping experience is provided by scenarios that address the most varied interest groups of a bookstore.
Non-book expert Angelika Niestrath will be present throughout the fair and guide visitors through the special exhibition twice daily.
