Around 220 exhibitors from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Switzerland have already registered for ConSozial in December. Event manager Beate Fischer gives a positive outlook: “The social scene is very happy – just like the NürnbergMesse team. The exhibitors give us a lot of encouragement. In the discussions, you can feel the anticipation and enthusiasm with which the participants look towards the trade fair date. The ConSozial here in Nuremberg is the marketplace of all social topics, a meeting place on an equal footing with almost 4,200 square meters of exhibition space. This is where the actors of the social scene meet: old acquaintances, but also new faces. One could also say that it is a family reunion of the social sector – and the ConSozial family continues to grow.”

The fourth edition of the Innovation Park is larger than ever with around 1,200 square meters. With over 40 exhibitors and thus a significant increase compared to the previous year, the exclusive format impresses with a large number of innovations from the industry.

One highlight chases the next

For all visitors who are interested in the trend topic of sustainability, the third tour Social & Sustainable is planned.

The rebooking stand on site in hall 3A, stand no. 3A-114 gives issuers the opportunity to book their stand for 2023 now. At the same time, it allows companies to share next year’s participation through a social media campaign on their company profiles.

Job market meets digitization

The absolute novelty this year is the digital job market. ConSozial is thus bringing the existing job exchange into the digital world as a supplement to the on-site trade fair. Regardless of the duration of the trade fair, job offers from the social sector regularly appear on the ConSozial LinkedIn channel. Exhibitors can send their open job offers to the press team, which then appear in weekly posts on the LinkedIn profile in weekly posts by product groups. In this way, the trade fair not only supports its exhibitors in finding suitable applicants, but also the ConSozial community in finding their dream job!
