Paperworld China 2021 deferred to allow exhibitors to concentrate resources on the 2022 edition

23 settembre 2021

Paperworld China 2021 will be integrated into its 2022 edition which
will take place from 12 – 14 May, due to the evolving pandemic
situation in China in recent months. The integration of the two
editions is to ensure a safe trade fair and to align with the local
government’s prevention and control measures. The move will also
allow participants to channel their resources more effectively.

Originally scheduled from 15 – 17 October 2021 at the National
Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), this year’s edition will
merge with the 2022 show at the same venue. Commenting on the
change, Mr Richard Li, General Manager, Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai)
Co Ltd said: “As a professional trade fair organiser, providing a safe
trade fair for show participants and staff has always been our primary
concern. In view of the evolving pandemic situation, and to align with the
anti-pandemic measures of the city where the trade fair is held, we have
made this decision after intensive consultations with key industry

Ms Xiaoli Yi, Chairman of the China Stationery and Sporting Goods
Association added: “On a positive note, this step will allow exhibitors and
visitors to channel their budgets and resources towards May next year,
which is expected to deliver even greater business value for the industry.
May is the ideal time to source products before the school summer
holiday begins. We look forward to welcoming all of our industry friends
back in 2022, and to see the latest stationery items for the new school
calendar year.”

As a leading trade fair for stationery, office supplies, hobby, art and craft
supplies in Asia, Paperworld China attracts a large contingent of first-tier
Chinese brands to showcase their latest products and innovations at the
show. Parallel to vast business opportunities, the show is also wellknown
for its wide variety of fringe events where participants are able to
keep abreast of industry trends and the latest national safety standards
for student supplies. Another show highlight is the BSOC Awards, which
acknowledge originality and creativity of products produced by
outstanding Chinese manufacturers.

Organised by the China Stationery and Sporting Goods Association
(CSSGA) and Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, Paperworld China is
the only trade fair in the domestic stationery industry that receives official
support from the CSSGA, an influential national industry association in
China. For more information about the show, please visit or email:
