We distribute. Bringing your games into the shelves of board game retailers and into the hands of the gaming community.
A comprehensive service is key to a successful product and its entry in the market. Our growing network of retailers and continuous presence at trade shows takes your product one step further, to the point where it is distributed and sold to customers.
Distribution & Promotional Activities
These two things go hand in hand for us. In addition to classical distribution, Board Game Circus represents the publishers and designers that we are cooperating with at trade fairs, conventions and during in-store events. We also maintain a media partner network to achieve ongoing press coverage.
The Board Game Circus booth at SPIEL (the world’s largest board game trade fair in Essen, Germany) and many other conventions in the German-speaking area is a place for customers to learn, try and buy games directly from us and our trained staff. For publishers that can’t attend themselves, this representation is a great chance to participate at conventions in the German-speaking area without spending massive costs for travelling, hotel etc. On behalf of our cooperation partners we also represent your brand or product in business meetings, proposing your product to our network partners.
Distribution and sales happen during conventions, through a growing network of retailers and selected web-shops in the German-speaking area (Germany, Austria, Switzerland).
- The German-speaking board game market is one of the largest world wide.
- The world’s largest trade fair, Internationale Spieltage SPIEL, with over 180.000 visitors on 72.000 square meters happens in Essen, Germany.
- Distribution is the key to guarantee availability of your portfolio in foreign countries.
