Creativeworld 2016 is the business and ordering platform for the hobby, handicrafts and artist's requisites sector and has the largest international participation worldwide. Already there's more than 250 exhibitors from more than 30 countries signed up.
Creativeworld 2016 can report an outstanding number of registrations with more than 250 exhibitors, already having booked their stand location for this exhibition of new products, which will be taking place in Frankfurt am Main from 30th January to 2nd February 2016.
The applications come from more than 30 countries demonstrating a very high level of international participation with over two thirds of the exhibitors come from outside Germany. There is particularly strong representation of manufacturers from the USA, Italy, Great Britain, the Netherlands and France.
Creativeworld 2016 will showcase a varied range of well-known manufacturers and distributors. Through its wide portfolio of brands, the participating companies serve all the major product segments in the sector. In the area of graphics and artists' supplies, registrations include Royal Talents (Netherlands), Colart International (UK), Mitsubishi Pencil (Japan), Fedrigoni/Fabiano (Italy), Pebeo (France), Maimeri (Italy), as well as from the German companies Marabu and C.Kreul GmbH Künstler.Farben.Fabrik.
The hobby and crafts product group is prominently represented by companies such as Sizzix-Ellison Europe (UK), Creative Company (Denmark) and the German manufacturers Rico Design, Eberhard Faber, Buntpapierfabrik Ludwig Bähr and Staedtler. DMC Creative (Great Britain), amongst others, will be presenting products relating to handicrafts and textile design.
In the tape-art segment, Kamoi Kakoshi Co. (Japan) is offering MT Masking Tape and Kip GmbH (Germany) offering Duck Tape. The best known representatives of street-art products are the German companies Edding and Montana Cans. As well as new products from exhibitors, who specialise in particular product areas, trade visitors to the show can also expect large international full-range suppliers at the show such as Max Bringman, Rayher Hobby and Hobbygross Erler, as well as representatives from publishers like Christophorus Verlag and Frechverlag. There's 35 new registrations from the EU, Russia, Lithuania, North America, South Africa and Australia. "The positive situation with regard to registrations shows that we're offering the ideal event for the sector, at the right time at the beginning of the year and at a central location at the very heart of Europe,” says Michael Reichhold, Director of Creativeworld.
Alongside the attractive mix of a large number both of well-known brands in the sector and new start-up companies, the high-calibre complementary programme in Halls 4.1 and 4.2 at Creativeworld, with its lectures, panel discussions, awards and trend show, offers added value for the whole of a broadly-based trade and professional public.
The trade fair is an important magnet for the wholesale, retail and specialist trade alike. That is equally true for DIY chains and garden centres, internet and mail-order retailers, as well as for institutional end-consumers such as art colleges and university departments, educational and child-care institutions. Products such as creative and craft materials in user-friendly complete sets, moreover, make for interesting additional product ranges in toy and book shops, and in grocery shops and fancy-goods stores. Buyers in this segment are increasingly using Creativeworld as a platform on which to order the goods. After all, for them, a visit to Frankfurt repays itself three times over: the exhibitors at the concurrently held Paperworld and Christmasworld trade fairs also offer products, which can provide an ideal and remunerative complement to retailers' core ranges.
