Review 2018

Insights-X makes a name as stationery brand fair

The fourth Insights-X was held from 4 – 6 October 2018 in Nuremberg.  Due to the public holiday on 3 October in Germany, the organiser Spielwarenmesse eG was forced to shorten the stationery expo by a day. Nevertheless, the international support for expo’s focus on quality was exceptional. The exhibitor portfolio consisted of 311 companies and confirms its place as a brand fair for the international stationery sector.

2019 - Insights-X on four days and with a new hall

2019: Insights-X expanding its qualities with you

Insights-X will be held over four days again next year: from Wednesday, 9 October, to Saturday, 12 October 2019. The inclusion of an additional weekday offers moretime for high quality business discussions. Furthermore, international trade fair visitors with long distances will have the possibility to extend their stay.

Another change: in 2019, the newly erected Hall 3C will be used instead of Hall 3. It is perfectly connected to Halls 1 and 2, which means even shorter distances to cover.

Quality will remain the glue that binds all of the offerings of this exceptional expo. So that our exhibitors and visitors not only do good deals in Nuremberg but also return home inspired and in good spirits!

Comments from participants

We expected that it would be a fair with mainly German visitors. But we had conversations with many visitors from all over the world. From Norway till Dubai.

BLOOM your message, exhibitor, Sjoerd van Dijk, Netherlands

The Insights-X has become very important because of its timing which is different from other big trade fairs. Therefore we are able to get an early insight on the things that will be relevant for us in the upcoming year.

The period of the Insights-X is correct and allows to present new collections. The German location is good in the centre of Europa and a good meeting point for northern and eastern Europe countries.

I think Insights-X is very efficient since it is a focused exhibition and here are all the suppliers which are important to the industry.
