Christmasworld and Ambiente expand global sourcing with simultaneous trade fairs

In the sourcing area of Ambiente and Christmasworld, which takes place simultaneously for the first time, trade visitors will find a unique spectrum of international producers on the largest sourcing platform outside China. By having the two fairs in parallel, a global range of Ambiente Dining, Living, Giving and Working as well as Christmasworld will be bundled in Halls 10 and 11.1 – opening up additional, valuable contacts and a maximum degree of internationality for exhibitors.

For years now, importers as well as manufacturers have found reliable and strong partners in the sourcing area for volume business from industrially produced to handmade goods from all over the world – many of them produced under sustainable aspects. With their central location on the exhibition grounds and direct connection to each other, Halls 10 and 11 create short distances and a quick overview of current solutions in breadth and depth.

“By bundling the products of the two leading trade fairs, Ambiente and Christmasworld, which can be called up on one order date, we are creating valuable new synergies and unprecedented contact and business opportunities. It also provides us with international marketing and high visitor frequency. For buyers who have not previously sourced globally, this provides uncomplicated access to additional markets. As the largest sourcing platform available outside of China, Global Sourcing is ideal for systematically establishing contacts and concluding container deals with manufacturers,” says Philipp Ferger, Vice President Consumer Goods Fairs.

A globally unique offer in a new structure

Global Sourcing will cover six hall levels at the coming Ambiente: 10.1 to 10.4 and 11.1 for the Ambiente product groups and 10.0 for Christmasworld. In the latter, everything revolves around florists’ requisites, seasonal decorations, Christmas products and lighting in the Christmas & Seasonal Decoration section.

The Global Sourcing Living area Giving & Stationery in Hall 10.1 is all about gifts. The division is complemented by the new product group Global Sourcing Working: In addition to products on the subject of office supplies, equipment, furnishings and technology, exhibitors will also be showing presentation and organizational aids as well as mailing and consumables here.

At Dining Table in Hall 10.2, buyers will find everything to do with porcelain, ceramics, metalware and silver, as well as table decorations and accessories. On the same hall level in the Living Home Decoration & Outdoor segment, exhibitors display hybrid collections of home and table accessories and outdoor products. The Living Hall Home Select in 10.3 presents a selection of exhibitors whose experience has established them in the global sourcing segment for years.  The Living Global Sourcing range is rounded off by the Home Accessories & Crafts section in Hall 10.4: Small furniture, home accessories and textiles from all over the world reflect the diversity of the global market in all its facets. Another focus of the hall level is the theme of sustainability and fair trade and Ambiente is once again proving to be the central international trading venue for sustainably produced consumer goods.

Opposite Hall 10, trade visitors to the Dining Kitchen & Houseware segment in Hall 11.1 will find a wide range of cutlery, cookware, fryware, bakeware, and kitchenware, as well as cutlery and small electrical appliances.

Ambiente will be held at the Frankfurt exhibition center at the same time as the leading international consumer goods trade fairs Christmasworld and Creativeworld. Ambiente/Christmasworld: February 3 to 7, 2023 and Creativeworld: February 4 to 7, 2023. For more information visit
