The Spielwarenmesse Digital brings the global industry together virtually: the new platform will have an extensive live program available for all participants on the originally planned date of the trade fair from February 2nd to 6th. As announced by the organizers, registrations for dealers and media representatives are now possible.

In addition to various communication tools, the digital toy fair offers retailers a compact overview of trends and innovations. The registration phase for trade visits starts on January 19th.

Opening with award ceremony

That the toy fair will take place as a purely online event, the players recently decided: due to the current corona situation surrounding the Omicron variant, the decision was taken to take this step. For a long time, Spielwarenmesse eG had stuck to the plan of an in-person fair – with a strict hygiene and safety concept as the foundation. In the end it was to be different.

The live phase of Spielwarenmesse Digital will now start with the digital opening on February 2nd with the presentation of the “Toy Award” to the winners, to which all industry participants are invited. The transfer of knowledge is also a focus. The presentations of the Toy Business Forum will be streamed via the platform on all five days. The spectrum of topics ranges from current trends in retail and toys to marketing, sustainability and digitization. The "License Talks" and product presentations by exhibitors can also be seen at Spielwarenmesse Digital.

All participants can easily mark interesting lectures in their own calendar on the platform. After February 6, the presentations will be available "on demand" as videos. The presentations of the Toy Business Forum are available in German and English.

In addition, Spielwarenmesse Digital offers a compact overview of all participating companies and their ranges. All companies are represented with their own entry in the “Exhibitors & Products” menu item. In addition to information about the company and contacts, the profile provides an overview of the product range and selected product entries with text and images.

Thanks to various communication tools such as private chats, group chats, audio calls and video meetings, dealers can contact exhibitors directly. Virtual meetings can also be easily arranged. The platform also offers numerous search and filter options. Relevant providers, innovations, brands and licenses can be found quickly and saved in your own favorites list. The popular special areas of the leading industry event are also shown at Spielwarenmesse Digital.

"With Spielwarenmesse Digital we are setting new standards"

Another highlight is the “Networking” area. Based on the interests stored in the personal profile, the platform suggests suitable contacts to all participants. Using the search function, buyers can also easily find their business partners and network with them.

“With Spielwarenmesse Digital we are setting new standards. Thanks to the platform, we have a wide-ranging industry network for the international toy community, which promotes mutual exchange and the establishment of new business relationships," explains Christian Ulrich, spokesman for the board of Spielwarenmesse eG.

About buyers can register on the new business platform and create their personal profile. Tickets are through the website available. Tickets already purchased for the stationary industry leading event remain valid for Spielwarenmesse Digital.
