“We are looking forward to an excellent Stuttgart trade fair autumn 2019! The network of very different trade fairs has developed very well and the visitors have been thrilled, ”said Roland Bleinroth, Managing Director of Messe Stuttgart, at the end of this year’s fair. A total of nine parallel trade fairs enchanted 140,000 visitors. 1492 exhibitors provided for an extensive and varied offer during the past four days (November 20-24), which did not create a gloomy November mood in the exhibition halls. But on the contrary.

New and a direct magnet for the public: the Morgenmacher Festival. Tinkerers and artists, makers and scientists, young and old, met on more than 10,000 square meters to learn together and work on ideas for the future. “We are proud to have developed and successfully implemented a new event format together with strong partners, our facilitators,” says Guido von Vacano, member of the management board of Messe Stuttgart. “In addition, there were many other new offers and proven classics that have developed fantastically.”

For the first time, a world championship in dog dancing with over 100 starters from 19 nations and the Petsummit, a social media congress for the pet industry, took place as part of the pet fair. The world record for the longest Duplo railway was broken at the game fair, the themes “beautiful living” and “children’s happiness” celebrated their premiere in the creative, the new “healthy building” area was presented to visitors at family and home, and vegan athletes met on the veggie and free of. Above all, the numerous hands-on offers spread across all events met with immense interest: “Especially for children and young people, the special offers and hands-on activities were a real paradise,” added Armin Domdey, head of department for the Stuttgart trade fair autumn. 

The colorful mix of the trade fair association was very well received: On average, visitors stayed for almost five hours on the fall of the fair in order to be inspired by the wide range on offer. This is an outstanding value for public fairs. In school grades, there was a slippery “two” from visitors. Nine out of ten visitors said they found exactly the right offer for them at the fair.

 “Successful premiere!” Is the conclusion of Vacano’s latest event at the Stuttgart trade fair autumn. “A big thank you to our four facilitators, the Baden-Württemberg Foundation, experimenta – the Science Center, Paul Horn GmbH and the Neckar-Alb region!” At over 150 maker stations, visitors large and small for technology and science, Let art and culture inspire and become active yourself. The offer was supplemented by shows and lectures, educational and digital offers. The “Book of 1000 Ideas”, a collection of suggestions for a future worth living designed by students, was handed over to the Ministry of Culture of Baden-Württemberg.

Eva Siebel from event management at experimenta – the Science Center: “We are spot on, because people who have an affinity for technology and science come to this fair, people who like to tinker. The eyes of all ages were shining across generations, which was very nice to see. The model builders were also totally interested. We got into extensive discussions with many visitors and were able to present ourselves comprehensively. ”Daniel Wittig, instructor at Paul Horn GmbH, said:“ We presented projects here that we implement with our trainees. This was enthusiastically received, especially on Thursday and Friday by the school classes, but there were also many interested visitors among the families at the weekend. We could explain illustrate and inform about the job description of the industrial mechanic. It is particularly important today to be present at such trade fairs! ” 

For Tania Teschner from the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung’s communication, the Morgenmacher Festival is “a beautiful format that brings everyone together and offers a very diverse view of the topic. People came together who wanted to create something. We were of course in good hands as a foundation. The interest was very high, especially our student inventions appealed to the visitors. The highlight was our ‘Expedition D’ to digital job profiles. “

Truly not a premiere, but an integral part and crowd-puller during the Stuttgart trade fair autumn – but for the first time with a three-day term: the Animal. Two halls full of animal offers, countless opportunities for two and four-legged friends to participate, a world championship in dog dancing, a world cat exhibition, Germany’s first petfluencer congress, top-class riding tournaments, colorful aqua-terra worlds: the list of animal program items could be kept for a very long time continue. A colorful mix of topics and offers that was well received by the visitors: 92 percent stated that they wanted to recommend the event to others. Visitors were particularly interested in the offers for dogs and cats. A quarter said they were explicitly interested in the topic of dog dancing.

Sascha Hörnke, Sales Manager at Schulze Heimtierbedarf: “We are totally happy! The visitors were all in a good mood, there was a great atmosphere. This time we were here with a larger stand, which paid off, because as in previous years we sold well again. The Animal is an important trade fair that is indispensable for us! “Jürgen Kleinmann, Trade Fair Management at Kölle Zoo, added:” This time we had enlarged the area and with a double presence in two halls we were the largest exhibitor at the Animal. It was amazing how well the halls were filled on Friday. Our specialist staff had many good discussions and our entire range was in high demand. It’s great how many people you can mobilize here. The new three-day concept seems to be working. ”

Every day over 100 workshops, new special areas on the subject of furniture preparation and living room decoration (beautiful living) as well as sewing your own children’s clothing (children’s happiness), countless inspirations for cake bakers at Cake It, exhibitors from all disciplines of the creative scene: a mix that was well received by visitors . 94 percent want to recommend the event to their friends and acquaintances. 

Jürgen Bendig, Managing Director of the dream bakery: “Our appearance at the Kreativ was an absolute highlight! We take part in several trade fairs a year, but I have never seen a rush like this. The customers literally ran into our booth! Whether during the week or on the weekend, it was always full. I am more than satisfied with the response and I expect further good development in the next few years. “Arne Schumacher, Managing Director of Kunst & Kreativ, said:” We are very satisfied. From the beginning, the trade fair went even better than last time, so that we were able to record an increase in sales compared to 2018. I really like the Stuttgart audience: the people were in a great mood, they are all very good customers. We are consistently well received here, which is why we will be here again in 2020! ”

At the games fair, board games were particularly popular with more than half of the visitors. The game island with its novelties and the offers for younger guests were also at the forefront in terms of popularity – and were also reflected in the permanent game tables. Numerous exercise options and the long game night on Friday were also very popular. In the gallery of the L-Bank Forum (Hall 1), the huge Lego area enchanted visitors large and small. Expansive dioramas, filigree buildings, a successful Duplo railway world record, large game tables: they all ensured a good mood among the visitors. 

The good mood also spread to the exhibitors. Andreas Conzatti, Sales Manager at Spielwaren Kurtz: “The fair was more than successful for us! We sold disproportionately, which we hadn’t expected to this extent. With the new trade fair combination, we apparently reach even more family audiences. The new trade fair cooperation with our trading partner ‘Rollplay’ also worked excellently. We were able to record an economic increase for the fourth year in a row and are very satisfied. “Erik Amels, Product Manager at Hubelino, said:” Our ball track was first presented at the game fair, here we laid the foundation for our business. In 2012 we were in Stuttgart with 100 kits and said: ‘If we sell them, we will continue.’ The goods went away and it stayed that way. A lot of people have come to us every year since then and buy our new products. And there is an increase every year, this time too! “

The game “High Voltage” from Amigo Verlag won the prize for the educational game of the year awarded at the game fair. The author is Maureen Hiron, graphic artist Antje Stephan.

With its fifth edition, veggie und frei von, which for the first time filled a complete exhibition hall with 10,000 square meters, enchanted its audience. The extensive range of vegetarian and vegan foods and the opportunity to buy them directly on site were the decisive reason for over 50 percent of the visitors to visit the trade fair duo. In addition there were entertaining cooking shows and informative lectures, stars of the internet scene “to touch” as well as a huge “free of” area, which was particularly well received by visitors with food intolerances. Veggie und frei von was thus able to impressively underline its position as the leading trade fair for enjoyment and health.

Oskar Döllinger, owner of the traditional Schleicher brewery: “We are regularly overrun here, and this time the rush was huge. The Stuttgart audience is very high quality, very concentrated. Among other things, we presented our new second brand, which will be available in retail next year, and received a very good response. The staff here at the fair is also very, very great. We’ll be happy to come back to the next veggie and free of! “Julia Parker, stand manager at Timo Parker Natural Cosmetics:” We are pleased that we met so many vegan and interested people here. Our products were very well received. We received a lot of positive feedback, including from customers who had bought from us last year. We were also able to acquire a large number of new customers. Some even came several times on different days and always bought something from us. The trade fair effect was even felt in the online shop! ”

Household and kitchen items as well as offers for health and wellness were particularly popular with visitors to the family and home this year. In addition, the trade fair offers from Leinfelden-Echterdingen, the Swabian Jura, the international kitchen trade fair from Der Kreis and the new offers on the topic of “healthy building” were very well received. 91 percent of the visitors indicated that they wanted to recommend the fair to their friends and acquaintances.

Klaus P. Wagner, Head of City Marketing in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, said of the Fildergemeinde’s appearance: “There are many positive things to report! I think the shortening of the fair duration is a good thing, because it has increased the attractiveness of the fair. The response was more compact, more concentrated and very, very good. There was a lot going on every day! We took the chance of a complete relaunch and presented ourselves more as a city, which was very well received. This showed us that we are on the right track. This is how we want to continue! ”Christian Karrer, Area Manager at Armstark, added:“ This time, the crowd was a bit more compressed, and I also had the impression that there were more people at the fair overall. There was a good frequency at our stand.

Offers for model railroaders were the focus of this year’s model and technology. As part of the European N-Scale Convention, huge exhibition facilities could be admired. Model train clubs from across the country presented impressive layouts in a wide variety of gauges. In addition, unique replicas of the Cannstatter Wasens and the special show “Progress with technology” were shown.

Christian Weiß, Vice President of N-Club International: “Our audience ranges from the amazed toddler to grandpa, who ideally comes back to the fair with his grandchildren. Our railway facilities were very crowded, and our children’s play areas were always in operation. We were here at the fair for the 14th time and were again very satisfied that we were able to present ourselves here. There was also a lot going on among the manufacturers, and it was sold well. ”Thomas Neumann, field sales manager at Modelleisenbahn München, said:“ The topic of model trains is on the upswing: Fortunately, digitalization has opened up a whole new audience, the mobile phone or tablet Plant control used. This connection brings our beautiful hobby closer to a young generation. I am pleasantly surprised how many families were here. All days were well attended, sales were right! “

The minerals, fossils and jewelry were sparkling and sparkling: 40 percent of the visitors were particularly interested in the high-quality jewelry offerings. The offer was rounded off by valuable finds from all over the world, which visitors could purchase directly at the fair.
