The latest trend products and promotional goods can be ordered directly at the IAW. Because many exhibitors are experienced importers with immediately available goods from local logistics centers. The fact that the majority of them come from Europe not only ensures low freight costs and fast delivery. The short distances also stand for an increase in sustainability and saving of energy that is so urgently needed right now. In general, sustainability is becoming increasingly important to consumers. Therefore, corresponding offers must not be missing at the IAW.
Informative Framework Programme
In addition, the IAW offers a free, informative supporting program for digital and stationary trade.
