CREATIVA-Europe’s largest exhibition for creative design

CREATIVA is Europe's largest creative fair. Nowhere else will you find such a multifaceted product range in the artisanal and creative area as at CREATIVA.It includes 12 themed worlds taking place in parallel: handicrafts, education & business, CREATIVA Neo, country & garden, painting, fashion & living, pearl expo, dolls & bears, games, textiles and cakes.

While 90,000 visitors came to CREATIVA in 2019, the current situation poses major challenges for the entire industry. Due to national regulations and for the safety of everyone involved, we have set an upper limit on the number of visitors who are allowed to be on the site at the same time.

At CREATIVA, visitors can take part in the program in a relaxed atmosphere, be inspired or exchange ideas. In this way, visitors have more time and space to rummage and shop at the stands and can discover many products that they might otherwise have missed.

The CREATIVA Future will take place on Wednesday, March 16 , 2022 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. As part of a barcamp format, we would like to welcome you to exchange and network.

At "CREATIVA Future, Up! Das Barcamp" you can exchange ideas about founders' stories, get to know already successful founders or ask your questions about business start-ups to experienced founders and experts.

CREATIVA-TALK: In addition, all creative minds will be offered a colorful show via the digital livestream of the From March 23rd ( once a month, always at 5:30 p.m.)) until the start of the fair, artists, designers and creators will give insights into their creative everyday life and present the latest products, techniques and ideas on all possible CREATIVA topics.
