After we unfortunately had to cancel SPIEL in Essen for this year, we would like to offer all publishers and gamers a useful alternative.
Therefore, we will be holding SPIEL.digital from October 22nd to 25th 2020, an online trade fair at which publishers can present their new products to a wide audience shortly before Christmas. In addition, sales will be possible. A large supporting programme with panels, livestreams and many other attractions is also planned. Interested exhibitors are welcome to send us an email to [email protected]merz-verlag.com. We look forward to seeing you!
Heres details on Essen, and I will add links below later to each of the top 10:
The international game days "Spiel" is the world's largest trade fair for toys and games and offers the unique opportunity to receive full and detailed information on the complete national and international games offer. Nowhere else the whole game scene is represented as extensively as here. At this fair experiences are shared, new products are introduced on the market and new ideas and games trends are gained. The exhibitors invite you at many tables to test and play along. Entertainers show, how the games works and explain the unknown. From chess to the classic card games to children, strategy, skill and computer games everything can be found here. Even for small children, the game days are a very special experience. A wide range of high quality toys are just waiting to be tested and recorded. A bobby car and a skate obstacle course, a bouncy castle and an exercise and family garden invite you to participate and experience. A special highlight of the game is the Comic Action - a must for any comic book fan. It gives a great overview of the domestic and foreign comic market, from comics about artwork, posters, art prints to t-shirts and action figures. Comic book collectors provides the used comic store a space to browse, to exchange and to discover. The most important highlight of the show is the award of the German Game Award for the best children's, family and adult games but also for exemplary rules. In addition, a special award for outstanding personal or institutional services in gaming will be awarded.
On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 4 days of the fair, from 26. October to 29. October 2017, about 1100 exhibitors and 182000 visitors on the Spiel in Essen.
