Kind + Jugend

The 2021 edition of Kind + Jugend has been moved up to the dates of September 9th to September 11th, 2021 to allow for streamlined programming and hall optimization at Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. Organisers have asserted that the Messe Cologne adheres to the highest safety and hygiene standards.

A Brief Introduction

Kind + Jugend is the international trade fair for kids’ first years and children’s articles, which put other events in this category to shame. Not only is this event the premier stage to survey the latest trends for the entire line of baby and children's outfitting, but it’s the biggest as you can see from the over 1200 international exhibitors. We also have to mention how the trend in visitors and exhibitors sustainably grows upwards. The annual event is set to bring in somewhere around 24,000 trade visitors from all levels of the industry. That’s enough reason to get yourself a booth!

An Industry Profile

First and foremost, Kind + Jugend is a marketplace where designers can find opportunities to landlines with major brands, and where buyers come to secure deals from manufacturers. The fair is inclusive — established industry leaders exhibit alongside fledgeling brands. The product line-up is truly impressive — baby apparel, baby carriers, baby seats, baby toys, monitoring equipment, plush toys, nursery supplies, outdoor toys, strollers, toddler toys, toiletries, care products for mothers, child safety products, children's shoes and children's toys.

Past Editions

2021 edition

Kind + Jugend's 2021 edition took place between 9.09.2021 and 11.09.2021 as a hybrid event. It consisted of a face-to-face exhibition and a complementing digital platform. Such a format change was necessary due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic also warranted the necessity for the venue where the in-person fair took place to include strict prevention measures. Among the measures was the need for in-person attendants to present valid health certificates and to wear masks. Kind+Jugend 2021 received positive reviews from the exhibitors and visitors who attended the hybrid format. Among the highlights of the edition was the high interest in sustainable concepts, materials and new products. The edition received around 150 exhibitors and approximately 2000 trade visitors. The digital platform for the rendition remained available until the end of October 2021.
