Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld to run simultaneously at Frankfurt in February

03 Nov 2022

Under the motto ‘Home of Consumer Goods – Welcome Home’, three leading international trade fairs will come together at Frankfurt in February. Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld will be hosted in parallel at the Frankfurt exhibition centre from 3/4-7 February 2023, strengthening synergy effects and efficiency for all participants. The new mix brings visitors a wealth of inspiration on site, an increased choice of products and more opportunities to find new business partners while also introducing exhibitors to additional visitor target groups. As well as young talent programs, awards ceremonies, networking events and a host of presentations on the trends and challenges of the future, the exhibition also offers digital extension platforms for information, ordering and business networking before during and after the fair.

New format
At present, 4,700 exhibitors from 80 countries are expected, 85 percent of them from abroad. “The demand and the great confidence of the market are overwhelming. For each leading fair, the top international brands and interesting newcomers are here. This means we show a unique range of quality and diversity. The whole world is once again at home in Frankfurt”, says Philipp Ferger, Vice President Consumer Goods Fairs, underlining the international significance of the events.

Ambiente fair
Ambiente presents a unique mix of ideas and products - and is the platform for global trends. Its Dining section will be the stage for everything that makes cooking easier and eating more beautiful. A new feature is the focus on the trend theme of baking, which will find its own place at Kitchen, Accessories & Baking in Halls 9.0 and 9.1. The new Clean Home product group in Halls 9.2 and 9.3 is also very busy. The HoReCa/Hospitality segment in Hall 11.0 continues to be one of the growing segments and makes Ambiente even more attractive for new visitor target groups from the hotel, restaurant and catering sectors.

Ambiente Living will once again be the international meeting place for interior design and will reflect the hottest furnishing trends. At Interiors & Decoration in Hall 3.0. you will find everything on the theme of furnishing and decorating. Interior Design presents high-quality design and the latest products from international brands in Hall 3.1.

Ambiente Giving is also launching with synergy-rich innovations: in the new Urban Gifts & Stationery section in Hall 4.2, visitors will find trend and design-oriented gifts, fast-moving products, decorative accessories, writing instruments, greeting cards, bags and personal accessories. Directly adjacent, the also-new product group Gift Ideas & School in Hall 6.2 presents decorative and classic gift articles, souvenirs, traditional crafts, and accessories. In the newly added School area, exhibitors will present their highlights.

The new Ambiente Working area with the Future of Work special presentation in Hall 3.1 offers furnishing design and modern solutions for offices and workrooms, co-working spaces and (mobile) working from home. The Office product area in Hall 4.2 is the new home for international suppliers of office equipment, supplies and technology. Buyers will find the Remanexpo product segment in the Congress Center with remanufactured printer consumables and components, printer hardware and software, and environmental and waste management products.


Christmasworld, the leading international trade fair for seasonal decorations 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. Christmasworld visitors will benefit in particular from the proximity to Urban Gifts & Stationery in Hall 4.2 and Gift Ideas & School in Hall 6.2. Christmasworld continues to focus on the strongest-selling and most emotional time of the year and uses the experience as a success factor like no other consumer-goods fair.


For the first time at Creativeworld, the world’s leading international trade fair for hobby, craft and artists’ requisites, products for creative writing and drawing will also enrich the range. Numerous classic writing-utensil manufacturers are expanding their product portfolios in the direction of creative materials, so the joint appearance under the Creativeworld umbrella is a logical step for the market. With this realignment, the trade benefits from an unparalleled crossover of product groups, themes, segments and synergies. Creativeworld is the ideal order platform for the wholesale, retail and specialist trades, DIY markets, garden centres, the internet and mail-order trades. With its multi-faceted complementary programme of events, Creativeworld is a source of new ideas, inspiration and expert knowledge.


Global sourcing
In addition, trade buyers of large volumes will find a globally unique range of products, from industrial to handcrafted goods, in the new bundled Global Sourcing area. On a total of six hall levels in Halls 10 and 11.1, joint stands and individual exhibitors from Asia, South America, Africa and Eastern Europe will present their new products. This parallelism means that, for the first time, the global sourcing offer of Ambiente Dining, Living, Giving and Working and Christmasworld will be in focus together. “We are thus creating the biggest sourcing platform outside China in Frankfurt am Main - with prominent participants such as the World Trade Fair Organisation (WFTO) and the Centre for the Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries (CBI), who will be presenting exciting, sustainable projects from all over the world. And you can travel to us and order,” emphasises Ferger.

Ambiente/Christmasworld runs from 3 to 7 February 2023.
Creativeworld runs from 4 to 7 February 2023.
