Creativeworld 2023: High demand and great encouragement from the industry
After an enforced break of two years, the hobby, handicrafts and artists' requisites sector is showing great interest in its leading international trade fair. It is looking forward with anticipation and confidence to the consumer-goods event in spring 2023. Planning for Creativeworld, which will take place for the first time from 4 to 7 February 2023, has started with a high number of registrations. Many things are new: the move to Hall 1, the expansion of the product portfolio and the synergies with the world's leading trade fairs Ambiente and Christmasworld.
Strong synergy, high efficiency, maximum inspiration: The new business home of the stationery industry
From 2023, the three leading consumergoods fairs Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld will be held simultaneously and thus for the first time at the Frankfurt exhibition centre from 3/4 to 7 February 2023. In order to link relevant market players even more intensively and actively promote business with new customers, the range of paper, office supplies and stationery products will be repositioned within the three leading trade fairs.
Under the motto "Home of Consumer Goods", Messe Frankfurt will offer the world's most innovative and comprehensive range of consumer goods from 2023 onwards
Messe Frankfurt is actively fulfilling its mission to promote the economy by creating new platforms for the global consumer goods industry. As a first step, starting in February 2023, the three leading consumer goods trade fairs Ambiente, Christmasworld, and Creativeworld will be held simultaneously for the first time at the Frankfurt exhibition center from 3/4 to 7 February 2023. Under the new motto "Home of Consumer Goods," the redesigned offering will provide a unique, comprehensive portfolio of products and solutions and actively leverage synergy effects for exhibitors, visitors and the media. In a second step, the Global Sourcing section of the three leading trade fairs will be merged into a joint offering and marketed internationally. This strategic development step will be supplemented by a new, regionally based Design & Lifestyle offering in Frankfurt in the second half of the year.
Frankfurt consumer goods fairs in January and February 2022 to be cancelled
In view of the exponential worsening of the pandemic situation worldwide and the accompanying tightened travel and contact regulations, the consumer goods fairs Christmasworld, Paperworld, and Creativeworld are cancelled for January 2022 and Ambiente for mid-February 2022. The regionally-oriented trade fair Nordstil from 15 to 17 January 2022 in Hamburg will take place at the present time.
Creativeworld focuses more on sustainability
Creativeworld, the international trade fair for hobby, handicrafts and artists' requisites, is focusing more on the subject of sustainability. With the introduction of the Special Interest Sustainability, Creativeworld is setting the course for more environmentally conscious action. This also includes social commitment, which has been practiced for more than ten years in cooperation with the Frankfurt Children's Office. Here, Creativeworld exhibitors are called upon to donate their creative materials after the fair.
Creativeworld Trends: Long live Handicraft
With their creative themes, the Creativeworld Trends appeal specifically to the active DIY community, whose focus is on the resource-saving use of materials and products. Existing things are used and embellished to create new things and new materials. Above all, the focus is on handicraft, as the title for the 2022/23 season gets to the point: Manual Movement.
Focus on sustainability: New program at the Frankfurt consumer goods fairs
The fact that products are aesthetically pleasing and trendy alone is no longer enough for an increasing number of consumers today. Sustainability, with all its facets, is now a core global social and economic issue with enormous reach and significance - this is evident both at Messe Frankfurt's consumer goods trade fairs and in the actions of the company itself.

On 12 March, these donations were formally handed over to more than 50 organisations in the Riederwald district of Frankfurt.
