22.12.2016 More exhibitors, more choice: Creativeworld 2017 has ten percent more exhibitors than last year

Growing internationality at Creativeworld

The Creativeworld success story is set to continue in 2017. Following its première in 2012, Creativeworld has grown continuously from year to year and is now the world’s leading trade fair for the hobby, arts & crafts and artists’ requisites sector. Halls 4.1 and 4.2 are fully booked up for the coming event and more than 335 exhibitors (2016: 298) from 36 (2016: 30) countries will take part in Frankfurt am Main from 28 to 31 January 2017. This represents not only an annual growth rate of over ten percent but also a new internationality record. Thus, for trade visitors, there will be a bigger choice of national and international manufacturers and an even greater variety of products. “Creativeworld has consolidated its position as the leading platform for the creative hobby and arts & crafts sector, as well as for textile and artistic creativity, and is a fixed highlight on the international trade-fair landscape”, says Michael Reichhold, Creativeworld Director, Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH. “Over the years, we have developed an event that is unrivalled in the sector worldwide. Creativeworld is a living fair. It inspires, informs and encourages visitors to play an active role. Exhibitors present the latest materials and products that can be tested there and then. And this is what makes Creativeworld so special.”

All leading manufacturers from the sector’s main product segments have registered as exhibitors. For example, the latest hobby and arts & crafts ideas will be shown by Toga from France, Artemio from Belgium, Rico Design, Eberhard Faber and Staedtler from Germany while products for handicrafts and textile design will be presented by Myboshi from Germany and DMC Creative from the United Kingdom. Tape art is a trending hobby and will be in the focus of the presentations by Kamoi Kakoshi from Japan and Tape Technologies from the USA. In the graphic and artists’ requisites segment, trade visitors can look forward to innovations from Holland’s Royal Talents on a significantly bigger exhibition stand, as well as from Pebeo from France, Colart International from the United Kingdom, Derivan from Australia and Schmincke from Germany. A rapidly growing trend and already to be found at Creativeworld despite being a newcomer to the sector is street art. In addition to Germany’s Edding and Montana Cans, many other manufacturers will be showing the latest paints and tools for this segment.

Exhibitor search engine during the run-up to Creativeworld

Using the online exhibitor search engine on the Creativeworld website, visitors can find out about the other companies exhibiting at the fair well before it begins. Thanks to a set of filters, the system enables them to search quickly and easily not only by companies but also by products, product groups and exhibition halls, and thus make detailed preparations for their time in Frankfurt am Main. The search engine also provides profiles of the exhibitors, as well as information about new products and images.

The personal favourites list helps compile, save and subsequently call up all the information required about companies and their products with just a few clicks.
