January will be hot: Look forward to refreshingly new ideas at Creativeworld 2017!

The coming January will be out­standingly diverse and colourful – no cold, grey skies here! For four whole days from 28 – 31 January 2017 an inspi­rational breeze will be blowing through the halls of the inter­national trade fair for the hobby, craft and artist supplies sector in Frankfurt am Main.

In this creative atmosphere, over 300 manu­facturers will be show­casing their latest creative products, craft materials, tools, techniques, art and graphic supplies, as well as the hottest trends of the creative season.

Tailored to your needs: New products and contacts.

Whatever area you work in – wholesale, retail, DIY, mail order, e-commerce, drugstore, floristry or toy store – new business contacts and avail­able syner­gies are extremely valuable for any company and are a vital component of a successful business.

That’s precisely why you should visit the largest inter­national hotspot for trade visitors from the creative sector right at the start of the year. Not only are inno­vative product ideas presented, traded and ordered at Creativeworld – it is also a popular plat­form for main­taining existing busi­ness relation­ships and gaining new contacts.

Creativeworld stimulates: Sales and business success.

A refreshing source of inspiration:

The product range at Creativeworld is huge. Discover every conceiv­able material, tool and compo­nent for painting, handicrafts, gluing, stitching, embroidery, modelling, decorating, drawing and many other creative techniques.

Within reach:

Trade visitors are invited to explore a wealth of inspi­rations from this colour­fully diverse offer. Take the plunge – into a multi­faceted world of ideas that are constantly being reinvented at each exhi­bition stand. Here you‘ll find right in front of you products and materials you’ve never seen before. And the best thing is that you can order every­thing directly at the fair – including larger quantities and complete product assort­ments for rapid sale in retail food stores.

It’s the mix that matters!

The Christmasworld, Floradecora and Paperworld trade fairs take place at the same time as Creativeworld. Make the most of this oppor­tunity to visit these events free of charge and expand your product range with office supplies, writing instruments, seasonal decorations and gifts.

There’s more here than you’d think: All product groups at a glance:

  • Hobbies and crafts
  • Graphic and artists’ supplies
  • Handicrafts and textile design
  • Decorative crafts
