SPIEL in Essen is an international trade fair dedicated exclusively to card and board games. From 14 to 17 October SPIEL 2021 will turn Messe Essen into the stage of new releases by top board game publishers and emerging designers. All genres and age groups will be represented during the four expo days and participants will have the opportunity to observe the trends in boardgaming, which will come into play next year.
The 2021 SPIEL's full overview of the classic and modern games will be complemented by a programme of live demonstrations, workshops, competitions and tournaments, connecting professionals, gamers and influencing figures within the board game community. The innovation award innoSPIEL will give novel game ideas the recognition they deserve. Comic Action will showcase an impressive selection of national and international comics and merchandising articles. The Educators' Day will explore the potential of board games for educational purposes.

The latest SPIEL featured some changes. The new hall 6 accommodated comics, miniature games, LARP and fantasy games. There were more structural alterations, which is why the organisers provided a SPIEL guide. It was available online and at the entrances. Inside, participants found information on the hall plans and programme highlights. SPIEL 2020 is under way and some of these changes will probably be kept.
