The gallery of SPIEL can be found here.

In 2020 the first virtual edition of SPIEL – SPIEL.digital – has exceeded all expectations.

With more than 400 exhibitors from 41 nations, SPIEL.digital brought hundreds of thousands of people together to play and has also succeeded in providing a massive international stage for board games.

So that interested parties can continue to obtain information beyond the end of the fair, the SPIEL.digital platform will remain online until the end of the year.
