Optimistic mood: more than 300 registrations for Creativeworld 2021
26 marzo 2020
Positive signs have come from 320 manufacturers who have registered for Creativeworld 2021. It is precisely in challenging times such as the present that creativity is particularly important. Not only in the organisation of restricted everyday life, but above all because it takes people's minds off things and offers them a positive mode of activity.
Germany and the world find themselves in a situation without previous parallel, and currently we are all affected by the corona crisis. Now is the time to look ahead, to look to subsequent events; for, once our prescribed isolation is over, people will have a great need for personal contacts. This is where Creativeworld, the most important international trade fair for hobby, arts and crafts supplies, from 30 January to 2 February 2021, will offer a great opportunity.
"We were very fortunate with Creativeworld 2020. Since it was one of the few trade fairs to be held in the first half of the year at all, once again we were able to offer the creative community a platform to exchange ideas and experience. We hope we shall have profited from this exchange until our lives have become normal again. In these times it is particularly important for high-street retailers to gain an online presence as well and to continue offering their customers an opportunity to purchase", says Michael Reichhold, Creativeworld Director at Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH. "We are looking towards 2021 with optimism. For it is all the more important to provide the retail trade with a preview of new products and to look forward jointly with the creative sector, both national and international".
Numerous big names in the industry have already registered for the coming Creativeworld, including: Edding, Folia, FILA Group, Rayher Hobby, Rico Design, Feuerstein GmbH with its own Molotow brand, H. Schmincke, Hotex, Tombow, Creativ Company or Montana Colors, Robert Bosch GmbH with Dremel, Buntpapierfabrik Ludwig Bähr, Carioca, Marabu, Eberhard Faber/ Faber Castell, Kreul, Fabriano, Royal Talens and Clairefontaine.
BMWi area for creative start-ups
Creativeworld will be offering a new area for start-ups which aim to expand their business and their contacts both nationally and internationally. In this way young, innovative businesses in trade, industry or services can apply for the promotion area run by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). For a successful application firms must have distinguished themselves through new developments or a proven improvement to products, processes or services. Such business should also be less than ten years old at the time of the event, have less than 50 employees, and their annual turnover should be no more than ten million Euros.
