Get ready for the shows with practical tips for Christmasworld and Floradecora 2017

The countdown to the fairs has begun: from 27 to 31 January 2017, Christmasworld will be held on six floors of Halls 8, 9 and 11 and Galleria of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre with almost 1000 exhibitors from 42 countries. The International Trade Fair for Seasonal and Festive Decorations invites the sector to discover the latest trends for Christmas and for all other festivities and seasons of the year. Concurrently, the new Floradecora order fair with around 60 producers will show fresh flowers and ornamental plants to supplement seasonal decorations and take place in Hall 11.1 from 27 to 30 January 2017. In addition to new products being shown by the exhibitors, the fairs offer an inspiring programme of events including the Christmasworld Trend Show, special exhibitions, expert lectures and workshops, which makes it well worthwhile for visitors to prepare thoroughly so they can make the best possible use of the precious time available to them. "We recommend that visitors prepare for the fair online using our exhibitor search engine and event calendar, which will enable them to benefit most of all", says Eva Olbrich, Christmasworld Director, Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH.

Naturally, no matter what form they take a printed ticket or a digital smartphone ticket online tickets also save holders having to queue at the entrances.

Buy one ticket and visit four fairs
Moreover, trade visitors can visit four trade fairs by purchasing just one admission ticket:
Christmasworld, International Trade Fair for Seasonal and Festive Decorations (27 to 31 January 2017), Halls 8.0, Galleria 1, 9.0, 9.1, 9.2 and 11.0
Floradecora, Order Fair for Fresh Flowers and Ornamental Plants (27 to 30 January 2017), Hall 11.1
Paperworld, Internationale Trade Fair for Paper, Office Supplies and Stationery (28 to 31 January 2017), Halls 1.1, 1.2, 3.0, 4.0, 5.1, 6.0 and 6.1
Creativeworld, The World of Art and Craft Supplies, (28 to 31 January 2017), Halls 4.1 and 4.2

A quartet of trade fairs with added value
Valuable synergies for buyers at Christmasworld and Floradecora are offered at the concurrently held trade fairs, Paperworld, international trade fair for paper, stationery, office supplies and writing materials, and Creativeworld, international trade fair for creative crafts, hobbies and artists' supplies (28 31 January 2017). Topics such as decoration, writing and handicrafts are becoming more closely associated with one another, both at the wholesale and retail level and, when all is said and done, for the end consumer. The new foursome of fairs, all held at the same time, brings with it additional stimulus for business and for making contacts; opportunities for sensibly extending the range of goods one carries, for instance. The four consumer-goods fairs held at the same venue and at the same time, early on, at the start of the business season, thus offer a range of new and familiar products, services and trends that is without equal anywhere in the world. Merely visiting a trade fair guarantees added value, with the broad and innovative range on offer from the exhibitors as well as the inspirational complementary programme, which illuminates the whole range of trends and topics of the future. It makes a trip to Frankfurt well worth it, several times over.
