Michael Reichhold, Director Paperworld, reports on how the planning is progressing and what changes can be expected in the coming year.
You are already in the planning phase for 2020. What is the current registration status?
The number of registrations is very positive and more than 900 manufacturers have already announced their participation in Paperworld 2020. We have moved the registration date forward this year to provide early planning security for us and the exhibitors. The manufacturers reacted positively and secured their participation immediately.
Can you already reveal which important exhibitors have registered so far?
In the office area in Hall 3.0, Durable, Exacompta-Clairefontaine, Herma, HSM and Tesa have announced their participation. For writing instruments in Hall 4.0, Adel, Erich Krause, Kum, Möbius + Ruppert, Scrikss and Standardgraph are all on the list. In the Remanexpo section, Armor, Imcopex, Ninestar, THS and Winterholde & Hering have submitted their registration forms.
A comprehensive range of products is represented in the Stationery area in Hall 3.1 by Hallmark, Kaweco H & M Gutberlet, Leuchtturm Albenverlag, Paper + Design, Perleberg and Zöllner-Wiethoff.
And in the school area in Hall 4.0, Creationes Pandora, LycSac and Sportandem have all announced their attendance.
Is there a new hall allocation plan for 2020? Will anything change compared to Paperworld 2019?
The new product mix in the Stationery segment was highly praised at Paperworld 2019, both by exhibitors and visitors. For this reason, Hall 3.1 is also scheduled for stationery suppliers in 2020. Only the Remanexpo area will move from Hall 5.1 to the newly renovated Hall 6.1 in 2020, as we have to make way for construction work. The hall is right next door on the Via Mobile level and is very similar in size and structure.
