The Spielwarenmesse #2: Nuremberg By the Numbers

This is the second in a series of articles explaining the Spielwarenmesse Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Germany. It is, by far, the largest toy exhibition in the world. To give you an idea of its scales, it has three times the exhibition space as the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.

Now that Toy Fair has been moved to the Fall and it is unlikely that the Hong Kong toy events will take place, the Spielwarenmesse takes on added importance as the world’s largest meeting point for those in the business of play and toys.
