Visitor compliance is compulsory.

A Brief Overview of Paperworld

Paperworld, as the name handily reveals, concerns itself with office supplies, stationery products and writing instruments. The international trade fair offers you a full overview of the industry with top manufacturers and supplies coming to Frankfurt, Germany, for four days. It’s a dynamic time for both trade visitors and exhibitors as supply meets demand in one of the biggest procurement platforms in the world. Surely not to be missed.

Why Your Visit Is Worth It

Paperworld is the definitive trade fair to take your company to the next level as it kicks off the year and easily dictates trends and taste across the entire value chain. You stand to gain visibility and access to new regions as the fair is quite big and quite international:

  • 1660+ international exhibitors from 64 countries showcased at the event;
  • 32,000+ international trade visitors made the trip;
  • 78,000+ square metres of exhibition space used.

Industry Relevance

The very first edition of Paperworld was held in 1990 as it separated from the spring fair in Frankfurt. Now the annual trade fair has carved an identity of its own and shares the stage at Messe Frankfurt with two other major, highly specialized fairs – CHRISTMASWORLD (Christmas decoration and products) and CREATIVEWORLD (arts & crafts). Trade visitors come to survey the rich assortment of products surrounding the paper and office supply industries. The list is long and features school supplies, small leather goods, templates, drawing instruments, ink cartridges, drawing materials, envelopes, felt pens, copiers, copy paper, decorative films, writing instruments, highlighters, inkjet paper, labels and so much more. We’d also be remiss not to put an emphasis on the lecture program that touches upon law and contracts, design and customer care.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Paperworld garners a significant interest from wholesale trade and retailers as well, though the buyers from German and international companies are far more varied. You, as the exhibitor, can look forward to meet with industrial companies and service providers, book trade and bookbinders, gift boutiques, interior design and decoration trade, online and mail order firms,
department stores and supermarkets, and large trading organisations. That’s quite promising as a way to diversify revenue streams. You can also expect a truly international environment – 69% of total visitors are from outside Germany!
