To the press release

International Consumer Goods Show: 17. – 20. April 2021

‘The industry is convinced that trade fairs are needed as international platforms for rebooting the economy. The trend-oriented order cycles of the consumer goods industry require an annual event.’

Stefan Kurzawski, Member of the Executive Board, Messe Frankfurt Exhibtition

Consumer Goods Digital Days offer greater reach

The Consumer Goods Digital Days are a new feature, which will be held concurrently with the physical trade fair. With matchmaking, live streaming and knowledge transfer as well as the Nextrade digital platform, this parallel event will give exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to network, gain inspiration and place orders directly. The Consumer Goods Digital Days will also be home to the purely digital Creativeworld, an event that is taking a one-year hiatus as a physical meeting place in 2021.
