Exciting news: This weekend I’ll be going to the Insights-X Stationery EXPO in Nuremberg.

I first read about this trade fair in Lexikaliker’s blog. It’s from the same organiser who runs Nuremberg’s big toy and game trade fair and this year I was lucky enough to have been invited to attend, like several other bloggers.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that the big pencil manufacturer’s from in and around Nuremberg will be there, but strangely enough Faber-Castell isn’t listed in the pencil category of the trade fair’s directory. I am not sure whether this means that FC will focus on other products at Insights-X or whether this is just a mistake in the directory.

Faber-Castell has a big stand, too. Hindustan pencils is not far, stand A-13.

To my surprise some of the more exotic pencil manufacturers will also be there, for example the Hindustan Pencil company, but others, like Portugal’s Viarco are not present.

Sharpener wise, the only exciting company at Insights-X seems to be KUM.

I’m very much looking forward to visiting the trade fair. I’ve never been to a stationery trade fair or even a pen show before.

  1. Especially after I have been in Hasselt after I already knew you, but didn’t know you live nearby…

  2. Thank you. I took less photos than I would have wanted to. There’s just so much to explore, but so few time there.
    I will try to report what I saw very soon, as soon as work allows me to.
