The Ambiente, Christmasworld and Paperworld trade fairs will be held as a joint event under the name International Consumer Goods Show – Special Edition in Frankfurt am Main from 17 to 20 April 2021 as a one-off. This live event will be supplemented by targeted digital offerings from the Consumer Goods Digital Days. Due to the merger, the new date and the hybrid character of the event, new business-enhancing synergy effects for the entire industry will result under the current pandemic conditions.
The B2B events that have taken place again in recent weeks have proven one thing: trade fairs can be successfully implemented with a comprehensive safety concept. However, the preparation of international trade fairs also includes the fact that exhibitors must now commission trade fair service providers. Around 85 percent of exhibitors at Ambiente, Christmasworld and Paperworld come to Frankfurt from abroad. "From large sections of the international consumer goods industry, there is a desire to hold Ambiente, Christmasworld, Creativeworld and Paperworld 2021. Many companies hope that their presence at the fair will give their business a boost after the re-start of the economy. We feel more committed than ever to this necessity", explains Delta Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt GmbH.
Covid-19 has hit the UK tourism sector hard in 2020, although the late surge in “staycations” is now helping to fill up resorts. But what will 2021 hold – especially for the South West, which is so reliant on holidaymakers?
Because of the continuing uncertainty, the company that organises the biggest trade shows in the South West for companies in the tourism sector is making a guarantee to all exhibitors: book now and they will take 90% of the risk if there is a late lockdown, by limiting the risk for exhibitors in the case of a Covid-related postponement to a maximum of 10% of their stand cost.
The flickering flame and scents of the ‘Desire’ ranges from Lesser and Pavey continues to grow in colours and fragrances.
New decorative candles with festive scents come in ribbed glass jars with lids, each one a bold colourway. They feature matching tassel trimmed with gold or silver edging and knob. The matching diffusers come with quality scents and bamboo canes.
These are presented with a gold foil effect featured in the packaging and are available in three sizes.
Topline findings from The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA)’s latest member survey are that 83% of members report sales during lockdown as being ‘better than expected’, while 63% go as far as to say, ‘much better’. Remarkably more than three quarters of survey respondents said that they expected to hit or exceed budget for 2020, despite the pandemic and the effects of the resulting recession.
The comprehensive survey, published in full at the end of August, investigates the economic realities of the lockdown period from the impact on sales to the impact on business structure, strategy and future planning. Over 100 BHETA members responded to the questionnaire.
