The spring fair is returning to Frankfurt: In a first step starting February 2023, Messe Frankfurt will draw together the three consumer goods fairs Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld under the heading "Home of Consumer Goods", to take place concurrently from February 3/4 to 7, 2023.

"Frankfurt is thus the one-stop shop for the global consumer goods industry. Here, the lifestyle of generations is decided and shaped. We are thus offering the industry reliability and growth in challenging times. This is where business will be done from February 2023, where people will finally exchange ideas again and define the trends that consumers around the globe will be able to experience and purchase onsite and online over the next twelve to 18 months," explains Philipp Ferger, vice president of Consumer Goods Fairs.

The synergy-rich product mix for HoReCa, Contract Business and Concept Decoration will be supplemented by additional product groups and presented in a completely realigned hall structure. Messe Frankfurt already offers the largest sourcing platform outside China. The sourcing offering, which was previously integrated into the four leading trade fairs, will be expanded in Frankfurt from 2023 under the label "Global Sourcing".

At other times, it will be positioned at other international locations to open up additional markets and sales channels for producers and offer easy access to buyers who previously did not source globally.

To complement this, Messe Frankfurt is also planning a series of near-sourcing events, local business formats in selected sourcing countries. From summer 2023, Messe Frankfurt also wants to launch a lifestyle and inspiration platform focused on brands for the city and region. It is scheduled to take place at the second half of the year. This new offering will replace the previous summer platforms.
