With its unique product mix, the leading international trade fair for seasonal decorations and festive decorations offers trade visitors powerful design options for boosting the experience at the point of sale and inspiring customers. Here, emotions remain the key to success - Christmasworld demonstrates this like no other consumer goods trade fair with its many sources of inspiration, varied product ranges, and an event program featuring extensive expert knowledge.
"Our aim is to continuously develop the event and to adapt to the needs and wishes of our trade visitors - or even better, to anticipate these needs. In light of the ongoing challenges that are putting a damper on consumer behavior, retailers need to focus on the experience at the point of sale. Just as retail is evolving from the point of sale to the point of emotion, we want to drive this development as a retail platform and move from the point of exhibition to the point of emotion," says Eva Olbrich, Director of Christmasworld. In Frankfurt, the international consumer goods industry can expect new impulses, sustainable trends, and diverse solutions that will revitalize retail and city centres. These are the highlights of Christmasworld 2024.
