Spiel 2024 to be biggest show to date

Carol Rapp, Spiel

This year’s Spiel show in Essen is sold out and will be the biggest to date.

Spiel 2024 will span six exhibition halls from October 3rd to 6th, occupying a total area of 68,528 square meters.

“We are overwhelmed by the rush to our show,” said Carol Rapp, Managing Director of Spiel owner Merz Verlag.

“Due to the huge response, all hall plans were redesigned several times, stands were moved and the smallest corners were rearranged. The team always had Spiel’s comprehensive safety concept in mind: in order to allow visitors to pass through easily, the aisle width must not be reduced.

“The joy of the successful start comes with a small drop of bitterness: There is a waiting list for exhibitors who registered after the deadline. We knew quite early on that it would be fuller than 2023, but just before the deadline, we received a large number of registrations.

“It is impressive how popular SPIEL Essen is. With this power, we are starting a successful fair, the expansion of which we will consider for next year.”
