Around 1,500 exhibitors from 60 countries have already registered for Paperworld in Frankfurt am Main. They will be presenting a wide range of products in the areas of office and stationery. At the paper, office supplies and stationery trade fair from 25 – 28 January 2020, visitors will be immersed in the future of the modern office, and also discover the latest innovations in paper and stationery supplies for private use.
The international trade fair for paper, office supplies and stationery continues to evolve, picking up on market trends and therefore presenting new aspects of the sector to trade visitors. For four days, the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre will be transformed into a trend and business platform, ensuring a successful start to the 2020 season for the trade and industry.
“What makes Paperworld so special is the unique mix of well-known manufacturers and new market participants, some of whom are presenting themselves and their products for the first time at an international trade fair. In addition, Paperworld has a highly impressive international profile, accounting for some 80% of the exhibitors at the fair. This combination guarantees successful international business with numerous new products for company’s own assortments – something that is only possible in Frankfurt,” says Michael Reichhold, Director of Paperworld.
Paperworld continues to expand its position as a pioneer in the paper, office supplies and stationery sector, presenting a unique range of products in both “the visionary office” and “the stationery trends” – making it the only paper, office supplies and stationery trade fair to cover both sectors equally.
This parallelism opens up new perspectives that are decisive for fresh ideas and exciting additional assortments. At the same time, the rich and varied accompanying programme provides fresh impetus for the trade – for example with additional ranges, ideas, and experiences at the PoS as well as the latest product trends for shop and window display design.
The visionary office: Innovations in commercial office supplies
From office machines and equipment, organisational and presentation aids, office paper, writing and drawing instruments to IT and printer supplies and remanufactured printer materials, every product segment that makes tomorrow’s workplace a visionary office will be on display.
In the office supplies product area in Hall 3.0, exhibitors include Edding, Exacompta-Clairefontaine, HAN office equipment, Herma, HSM, Pelikan, Samsung, Schneider writing instruments, and Tesa.
Hall 4.0 is hosting exhibitors with writing and drawing instruments (Office) as well as manufacturers of school supplies (Stationery). This product mix has proven itself, as the writing and drawing instruments are aimed mainly at a young target group, which is perfectly complemented by the schoolbags, pencil cases, notebooks, pads, folders and licensed articles. Writing-instrument exhibitors include: Adel, Erich Krause, Kum, Möbius & Ruppert, Pilot, and Standardgraph.
The Remanexpo product group with OEM and printer consumables with related components, hardware and software as well as recycled printer materials, is moving from Hall 5.1 to Hall 6.1 in 2020. Exhibitors include I.R. Italiana Riprografia, Pedro Schöller Printservice, Ninestar, Static Control, Katun, and Winterholt & Hering.
Top German and international buyers from all sales and distribution levels, such as wholesalers, foreign and retail traders, drop shippers, trade organisations as well as mail order and online traders, all find the right products at Paperworld.
“Future Office” shows smart solutions for the office
The accompanying programme in Hall 3.0, C51 once again revolves around the “Future Office” – this time with the focus on “Smart solutions”. What is already possible with digital networking? How do we correctly deal with these technical possibilities? These and other questions will be answered in the Innovation Area, which targets architects, planners, facility managers, and retailers with a focus on office products.
Smart solutions: This not only refers to digital products and solutions, but also to the interaction between analogue and digital office environments.
