​​Reaching its 10th anniversary in 2021, Paperworld is the Middle East’s largest international trade exhibition for the stationery, paper, gifts and office supplies industry.

Running over three days, the show is a complete one-stop offering. Visitors can discover the latest market trends, connect with leading players and explore a vast array of products and brands – all in one place. There are dedicated sections for office supplies, school supplies, printing materials and – in the ‘Green Room’ – eco-friendly products.

This year Paperworld is adding a new corporate gifts section, showcasing everything from gadgets to branded office supplies and luxury, handcrafted items.

For 2021, the event is also rebranding and expanding its section devoted to children and babies’ toys, games and equipment. Formerly known as Playworld Middle East, this element will now become Playworld Village, reflecting the additional focus created by its increased number of exhibitors and visitors.

Alongside the trade show element, Paperworld includes events such as the popular ‘Wrap Star’ competition, and a full programme of educational and inspiring seminars on all aspects of the industry.
