Messe Frankfurt has announced that exhibitor numbers increased and feedback was positive for the 2019 edition of Paperworld.
“We are delighted with the large number of exhibitors, which proves that Paperworld is the world’s most important trade fair for the paper, office supplies and stationery sector. A total of 1,668 exhibitors from 64 countries made presentations during the four days of the fair. With renewed growth for the second year running, we have provided a stable foundation for the sector – and this despite the challenging situation in the market”, says Stephan Kurzawski, Senior Vice President, Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH.
According to this year’s exhibitor poll, around two thirds of companies were very pleased with the visitor standard. Almost 80 percent of exhibitors said they had achieved their goals for the fair. Accordingly, over three quarters of exhibitors stated that they were highly satisfied with their results at Paperworld.
“Manufacturers of branded products have begun the year on an optimistic note. They met their national and international customers at Paperworld 2019, which makes the fair the ideal communication platform at the beginning of the year. The exhibition halls offered an almost complete overview of the market – with satisfied exhibitors and the usual high visitor standard”, said Thomas Bona, Managing Director, Office Brands Industry Association (Verband der PBS-Markenindustrie).
