Messe Frankfurt cancels consumer goods fairs

In view of the exponential worsening of the pandemic situation worldwide and the accompanying tightened travel and contact regulations, the consumer goods fairs Christmasworld, Paperworld and Creativeworld planned for January 2022 and Ambiente for mid-February 2022 are cancelled. There are no plans to postpone the events.

The easing of the pandemic situation that was still hoped for in December is currently no longer in sight. Rather, the situation is deteriorating worldwide with an enormous, unforeseeable dynamic. This extreme worsening due to the spread of the Omicron variant in Europe and Germany means that Messe Frankfurt, as the organizer of the leading international trade fairs Christmasworld, Paperworld and Creativeworld, as well as Ambiente, is currently unable to maintain their dates in Frankfurt at the end of January and in mid-February 2022. 

“This decision was anything but easy for us. However, in consultation with large sections of the sectors represented at the trade fairs, it is now our responsibility to take this difficult step,” says Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt. “Our thanks therefore go to all our partners from the consumer goods sector, be they exhibitors, visitors, associations or the media, who worked together with us on the attendance fairs until the very end and, like us, put their heart and soul, energy and passion into staging them.” 

Information on the planning of the Frankfurt consumer goods fairs for 2023 will be announced in early February 2022.
