Published on: 13th November 2018

Trade visitors can now secure their tickets to the fair, which runs from 30th January to 3rd February. 

The next edition of the world’s leading toy fair will bring international decision makers together for the 70th time. Over 2,900 exhibitors will showcase around a million products, with approximately 120,000 innovations just waiting to be discovered. In addition to the new product group Electronic Toys, visitors can also experience the spirit of play at a multitude of different events including the new Showtime area in Hall 8, the TrendGallery and the ToyFestival.

As it marks its 70th anniversary, the Spielwarenmesse would like to thank all attendees for their loyalty over the years. On the Thursday evening, everyone at the fair is invited to join in the celebrations and to raise a glass to the industry at the ToyFestival. This sociable and relaxed gathering, with musical entertainment and a light bite to eat, gives industry members a chance to revel in the past, but also to look to the future and forge new contacts. The event starts after business hours from 6pm in Hall 3C. Admission is free for holders of a valid Spielwarenmesse ticket.

To save time and money, registered trade buyers can acquire their tickets in advance and online here. The site also contains everything visitors need to know about registering and pricing.

The Spielwarenmesse’s Partner Hotel Programme features hotels in and around Nuremberg, while Airbnb offers a wide range of private accommodation in different categories – from single rooms and furnished apartments to entire flats.
