SPIEL – A Brief Introduction

SPIEL has almost 40 years under its belt and within that time has risen to be a defining moment for players in the board game business, which in recent years has been in a state of revival. The international fair is based in Essen, Germany and occurs every October for four days. Edition after edition, SPIEL has not stopped growing. The edition in 2019 registered its highest-yet attendance – more than 1200 international exhibitors and 209,000 visitors in total at the modern exhibition halls of Messe Essen. That’s more than a reason enough to head on over to SPIEL.

An Industry Profile

Board games have long since evolved beyond being a simple children’s toy. Today the market is a multi-million-dollar industry with games targeting the whole family, casual players and serious gamers who want to be challenged. SPIEL reflects these tastes in its variety of product groups that include board games, card games, comic books, action books, figurines, accessories, children's games, original comic artwork, post games, interactive games, movement games, adult games, games of skill, and in recent years more and more inclusion of computer and digital games. The audience is definitely varied, but it’s safe to say the majority consists of end consumers.
