Tickets for Insights-X international fair go on sale to the trade
- OrangeNight – new networking event on the Friday of the fair
- Efficient planning for a visit to the fair via website and app
The brands are back in town – this is the motto under which the international stationery sector will meet up for the eighth Insights-X. The trade fair for ‘Stationery, Office, Bags and more’ is already recording a higher booking rate than for last year. Well-known brands and innovative startups will ensure that a wide variety of products is on display at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre, from 11 to 14 October including eXtra-Day. At www.insights-x.com/en/tickets, trade visitors can now register for the event and apply for tickets at a price of €15. To help buyers and retailers best arrange their attendance at the fair, the organiser Spielwarenmesse eG has a number of services available and a new networking event to offer.
One ticket covers all fair days
The ticket to Insights-X is valid for all the days of the event. From Wednesday to Friday, exhibitors will be providing the trade with the best possible overview of the market in Halls 10.0, 11.0 and 12.0. On each of these days, Insights-X is open from 9 am to 6 pm (Hall 12.0 to 5 pm on the Friday). The trade audience has a further opportunity to visit the fair on Saturday’s eXtra-Day, when exhibitors will be offering creative inspiration for range selection from 9 am to 5 pm in Halls 10.0 and 11.0.
OrangeNight on the Friday
Networking is an equally important matter at Insights-X. The best opportunities for this are during the AfterHour and on the new OrangeNight. The latter will be celebrating its premiere on the Friday evening, at the initiative of the exhibitors and of Spielwarenmesse eG. Businesses in Halls 10.0 and 11.0 invite trade fair guests to join them on their stands for a get-together where representatives of the sector can wind down at the end of the day with street-food, drinks and music. Admission to OrangeNight is included in the Insights-X ticket.
To assist with networking and efficient preparation for a visit to the fair, several digital tools are also available to the trade. The key source of information is the Insights-X website, which has a new and fresh design for the start of ticket sales. Alongside interactive hall plans, this also provides a compact overview of all participating companies. In addition, the website offers a networking area: after setting up their own profile, retailers and buyers will have the opportunity to arrange appointments in advance with exhibitors and to chat with other participants. On the basis of interests entered into in the profile, appropriate contact suggestions will be displayed.
An efficient trade fair visit with the Insights-X app
Another helpful feature is the Insights-X app, through which buyers and retailers will always have all the relevant information on the fair at their fingertips. In addition to the exhibition site plan and exhibitor catalogue, the networking area is also an integral component. It is automatically synchronised with the website so that chats, appointment requests and contacts can be conveniently called up on multiple devices. What is more, the ticket to the trade fair can easily be stored within the app.
