In the area of Germany, Austria and Switzerland there are numerous special and unique fairs. As the “trade fair world champion” and home to many leading international trade fairs, Germany in particular is a popular venue for unusual and unexpected events. In this article, we take a closer look at some of these target group-oriented events and show for which different topics trade fairs function as successful exchange platforms.
Spiritualism, card reading & Co
“I am not a believer, but I am spiritual”. A phrase that often comes to mind in the postmodern age. Believing in the supernatural but not wanting to be bound to a particular religious tradition (also known as “New Age”) is a trendy positioning.
At specialised esoteric fairs, those seeking meaning are offered a multitude of possible answers to the most diverse questions of life. In addition to a comprehensive selection of specialist literature, the interested public can also attend a whole series of topic-oriented lectures. The palette of services ranges from card reading, energy and light work to rune oracles, chakra analyses, protective amulets, palm reading, tarot consultations and much more.
Well-known esoteric fairs in DACH:
- Spirituality & Healing (Vienna, Mannheim, Berlin, Cologne etc.)
- NatureHealing Days & Spirituality (Bergisch Gladbach)
- Spirit and Life (Dortmund)
Reptiles and spiders for the household
Terraristics fairs are aimed at all friends of reptiles, amphibians and other animal species that live in terrariums. Here the exotic and majestic creatures can be admired and examined live – or even find new, responsible owners. While on the one hand many people enjoy learning more about these special species in the course of these events, on the other hand there is also discussion as to whether this form of presentation is sufficiently appropriate for the species.
