Logo Spielwarenmesse 2016As of next year, the duration of Spielwarenmesse will be reduced by one day. As of 2018, the dates at the Exhibition Centre in Nuremberg will take place over five days rather than six days. The dates for next year’s show have already been scheduled, from Wednesday, Jan. 31 to Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018.

The decision for the more compact trade show was made to enhance efficiency on all fronts. This year’s Spielwarenmesse will not be affected by the change, and will take place as planned from Feb. 1 to 6.
