Review of Christmasworld 2023, Messe Frankfurt, Germany

Discover the most important facts and figures about Christmasworld here. Christmasworld will offer the international consumer goods sector the long-awaited physical live trade-fair experience that strengthens business relationships in the long term. Christmasworld focuses on the strongest-selling and most emotional time of the year and exploits the success factor of experience at the point of sale like no other consumer-goods trade fair. This makes it the world’s most important ordering event for the international decorations and festive decorations sector.

Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld was held simultaneously for the first time at one of the world’s most modern trade fair centers from February 3-4 to 7, 2023. The newly created combination of three successful leading trade fairs at one location at one time thus combines their strengths and thus offers an unprecedented, simultaneously available, future-oriented product range in quality and quantity. Global business with large volumes is intensified.

The Christmasworld Frankfurt is the world’s leading trade fair for seasonal and festive decorations and the highlight of the decoration industry. It presents once a year the latest trends, products and innovations in all its forms, colors and facets of all festivals and celebrations throughout the year and serves as a trend and order platform. Every year in Frankfurt, it presents the latest products and trends for Christmas and all other festive occasions.

In addition, it provides innovative concept ideas for the decoration of large and outdoor areas for wholesalers and retailers, shopping centres and city centres. As the world’s leading trade fair for festive and seasonal decoration, Christmasworld in Frankfurt am Main exercises a magnetic power of attraction on top buyers from the wholesale, import / export and retail trades who make their way to Frankfurt am Main to place their main orders for the year.

From classic crafts for the highest quality standards, impressive concept decoration, exceptional flower arrangements, extraordinary decoration for the garden, trendy gift boxes, candles and scents or brilliant light installations – at any other exhibition is the offer for festive products for spring, Easter, autumn, Christmas, Halloween, Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day as wide and comprehensive as at the Christmasworld. The portfolio of the exhibition is complemented by unique concept ideas for the decoration of wholesale and foreign surfaces in the fields of wholesale and retail, shopping centers, DIY stores and the green industry.

The motto “Elevate your business” for the Christmasworld from 3 to 7 February 2023 expresses the fact that the live experience is crucial when it comes to raising business relationships to a level of trust. Following the expiry of the early-booking discount, the response from exhibiting companies at the leading international trade fair for seasonal and festive decoration has been so overwhelming that the planned layout of the exhibition grounds is being optimised. The companies also welcome the fact that the fair is being held in parallel with Ambiente for the first time, which opens up additional business potential.

The exhibitors agree on this. Christmasworld is also the perfect stage for presenting the success factor of experience at the point of sale with Christmas and festive decorations. Exhibitors are very much looking forward to finally meeting existing and potential new customers from all over the world at their leading trade fair. The feedback on the fair is correspondingly positive. The desire for disproportionately large stand positions for an emotional presentation is still unbroken and continues despite the pandemic.
