  • More exhibitors means extra inspiration
  • In-person trade fair with high networking factor

NUREMBERG, Germany, Oct. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Next week, the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre will once again become the central meeting point for the international community for Stationery, Office, Bags and more, which gathers for the eighth Insights-X from 11 to 14 October, including eXtra-Day. Even in advance, the mood is already superb – buyers and retailers from across the whole of Europe have high expectations for a wide range of products from the numerous key players and startups represented there. In addition, visitors will benefit from efficient networking opportunities and a newly designed special area.

Inspiring possibilities

With its exceptional business atmosphere, Insights-X is highly rated by its participants. Each and every day, exhibitors devote much time to face-to-face discussions with buyers and retailers. The short distances involved allow the trade to gain a comprehensive overview of the market in the fields of Writing Utensils & Equipment, Paper & Filing, Artistic & Creative, Desktop & Office and extending to Bags & Accessories and Stationery & Gift Articles. The urban flair of the redesigned InsightsArena provides additional inspiration. The Retail Inspiration Hub and the BRANDmate Plaza have on display widely varied ideas for putting together a strong-selling range selection, an attractive product display at PoS and major licensing themes. In addition, visitors’ creativity is stimulated with an artistic hands-on activity. And even after the fair closes, Insights-X will continue to create networking opportunities: at the AfterHour on the first evening of the event, industry and trade get together to enjoy relaxed conversation and, amid culinary delights and musical entertainment, to make new contacts. Then on the Friday of the fair is OrangeNight, a new networking party. With street food, drinks and music from a DJ, representatives of the sector mull over the day together in the InsightsArena in Hall 10.0.

Perfectly networked

Insights-X is also strongly supported by national and European trade associations. Cooperation partners from Germany at Insights-X include the Bundesverband des Spielwaren-Einzelhandels, EK/Servicegroup, the Handelsverband Büro und Wohnen, Handelsverband Hessen, idee + spiel, the Iden Group, InterES, Prisma, Soennecken and Vedes.
