Important Information

Unfortunatelly time and time again exhibitors are contacted by dubious companies wanting to include them in so-called Trade Fair and Exhibitors’ Directories, such as FAIR GUIDE, International Fairs Directory or EXPO-GUIDE. In most cases these are publishing companies who have not been authorised by the Trade Fair Organiser and who change for insertions in various directories after giving the impression that their services are free of charge. >> read more

CREATIVA - Europe's leading exhibition for creative design

CREATIVA, Europe’s largest and most diverse exhibition for creative design, takes place once a year at Messe Dortmund, Germany. The exhibition caters to all those who pursue creative design as a hobby or profession (eg. teachers, educators, special educationists), and anyone wishing to purchase individually designed items. 

For over 30 years, CREATIVA has been the event for the creative crafts trade in Germany. An average of around 700 exhibitors and 80,000 visitors gather once a year at Messe Dortmund.

BROAD VARIETY OF CREATIVE PRODUCTS IN DORTMUND

Over a total area of 40,000 square meters, all creative products and techniques can be found under one roof. Themes include felting, handicrafts, spinning, weaving, patchwork quilts, wood and metal work, silk and glass painting, jewelry making, painting, drawing, and pottery.

In addition to the main exhibition where exhibitors present their creative works and share their expertise, a variety of special interactive show features and creative workshops animate visitors to join in and be creative.
