More than 21,000 visitors – Great popularity for the international sales fair for handicrafts, design, natural goods and fair trade products showed great interest in trade fairs – Next Bazaar Berlin from 2nd to 6th November 2022
Shopping, like on vacation – Berliners and people from the surrounding area took advantage of this opportunity, which the Bazaar Berlin offered them again for the first time after a two-year break. The international sales fair for handicrafts, design, natural goods and fair trade products from all over the world ended last Sunday on the grounds of Messe Berlin with great encouragement and a good mood among the participants. At the same time, the Bazaar Berlin also marks a successful start to the company’s attractive trade fair business.
For us, too, the restart of the Bazaar Berlin was fraught with uncertainties. We are all the more pleased that our confidence has been confirmed. Everyone was very pleased that the bazaar took place again after two years. They contributed to the success with their positive mood,” explains Esther Piehl, project manager of the Bazaar Berlin. Exhibitors, visitors have repeatedly approached me and emphasized how good it is that the bazaar is taking place this year.
Over 21,000 visitors came to the northern grounds of Messe Berlin in the five days to experience the colorful variety of products from 230 exhibitors from 35 countries. Much more would hardly have been possible under the Covid-19 regulations. The event took place under 3G rules with corresponding upper limits on visitor numbers. “Compliance with the rules worked very well,” Piehl is satisfied.
The extent to which the Bazaar Berlin was missing is also reflected in the visitor survey, which has been held at the event for years. On average, visitors have never spent more money than this year. Nine out of ten visitors also say again this year that you will come back next time.
In a short survey, exhibitors of the bazaar were equally satisfied:
The flight from India here was twice as expensive compared to 2019, but it was important to me to keep in touch with my regular customers here in Berlin. Sajid Hassan, Imperial Shawls, India
The Bazaar Berlin is the first trade fair at which we have been exhibiting since the beginning of the pandemic. We come especially from Nepal to be here. Of course, the fair is smaller than in previous years, but the atmosphere is as pleasant and pleasant as ever. In addition, it gives back a piece of self-confidence to exhibitors and visitors.” Amer Lal Shrestha, Superior Arts & Handicraft, Nepal (exhibitor throughout since 1979)

The Bazaar Berlin will take place in 2022 from the 2nd to the 6th November for the sixtieth time.
