Equipped for the future: New area at Ambiente
Ambiente offers a comprehensive overview of the global range of consumer goods from February 3 to 7, 2023. It is not only the number one trade fair for tableware, kitchenware, and housewares, but in the Living section all styles relating to the home, furnishing and decorating can be experienced. Gifts and personal accessories in all their facets will be on show in the Giving section, which will now also feature high-quality stationery and articles relating to school supplies. The new Working section is dedicated to the topic of tomorrow's working environments, focusing even more intensively than before on relevant solutions.
Strong synergy, high efficiency, maximum inspiration: The new business home of the stationery industry
From 2023, the three leading consumergoods fairs Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld will be held simultaneously and thus for the first time at the Frankfurt exhibition centre from 3/4 to 7 February 2023. In order to link relevant market players even more intensively and actively promote business with new customers, the range of paper, office supplies and stationery products will be repositioned within the three leading trade fairs.
Under the motto "Home of Consumer Goods", Messe Frankfurt will offer the world's most innovative and comprehensive range of consumer goods from 2023 onwards
Messe Frankfurt is actively fulfilling its mission to promote the economy by creating new platforms for the global consumer goods industry. As a first step, starting in February 2023, the three leading consumer goods trade fairs Ambiente, Christmasworld, and Creativeworld will be held simultaneously for the first time at the Frankfurt exhibition center from 3/4 to 7 February 2023. Under the new motto "Home of Consumer Goods," the redesigned offering will provide a unique, comprehensive portfolio of products and solutions and actively leverage synergy effects for exhibitors, visitors and the media. In a second step, the Global Sourcing section of the three leading trade fairs will be merged into a joint offering and marketed internationally. This strategic development step will be supplemented by a new, regionally based Design & Lifestyle offering in Frankfurt in the second half of the year.
Frankfurt consumer goods fairs in January and February 2022 to be cancelled
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 are cancelled for January 2022 and Ambiente for mid-February 2022. The regionally-oriented trade fair Nordstil from 15 to 17 January 2022 in Hamburg will take place at the present time.

Focus on sustainability: New program at the Frankfurt consumer goods fairs
The fact that products are aesthetically pleasing and trendy alone is no longer enough for an increasing number of consumers today. Sustainability, with all its facets, is now a core global social and economic issue with enormous reach and significance - this is evident both at Messe Frankfurt's consumer goods trade fairs and in the actions of the company itself.
Visionary ideas. Natural. Optimistic and motivating - the Ambiente Trends 22+.
What comes, what stays? What do people want to tie in with now? This year, the experts from the design studio Stilbüro bora.herke.palmisano have deliberately traced the continuities between the trends and developed themes from them that, in addition to discovering new designers, also keep people's needs and moods in mind. Visionary ideas, sustainability and appreciation for traditions will shape our everyday life beyond the year.
Messe Frankfurt reorganises consumer goods sector
After Julia Uherek and Philipp Ferger took over as Vice Presidents of Consumer Goods Fairs at Messe Frankfurt Exhibition on 01 June 2021, they are now setting up their team with an eye to the future. Further personnel changes at management level will come into effect on 01 July 2021.
Ambiente 2020 impacted by coronavirus and Ciara
Trends, new products and international business – these are traditionally at the focus of Ambiente in Frankfurt, which took place from 7 to 11 February 2020. The world’s largest consumer goods trade fair had grown to 4,635 exhibitors  from 93 countries , covering 310,240 gross sqm . Ambiente was the first leading trade fair to be affected by the impact of the coronavirus on travelling. Another clearly noticeable factor was Storm Ciara. Business in the halls, however, did not suffer as much as expected, and, in all, large numbers of orders were placed throughout the trends and new products platform. Nevertheless, exhibitors were disappointed with the strong sense of uncertainty among visitors and therefore the absence of quite a few retail channels. Yet those who did travel to Frankfurt benefited from an outstanding ordering environment.
