Kind + Jugend, scheduled September 14-17 in Cologne, Germany, is the world’s biggest trade fair for the baby and children’s market. More than 1,200 exhibitors from over 50 countries are expected to present their innovations and product developments. Show management reports that more than 22,000 trade visitors attend the show.
Companies from around the globe will present a wealth of innovations in the categories of children’s furniture, safety seats, strollers, environmentally friendly toiletries, toys, and textiles in Halls 10 and 11 of the Cologne Exhibition Centre. Multi-functionality, safety, sustainability, and digitalization are becoming increasingly more important in the development of new products.
According to a spokesperson, the standard is out, while individualization and customization are in. Consumers want to live out their own styles and create space for their needs and ideas. Sustainability is still a strong focus on young parents. The trust in tested products manufactured under health and environmentally-friendly considerations play a big role overall. Digitalization is also increasingly more significant in children’s rooms, for example in the case of multifunctional care products linked with smartphone technology.
For more than 90 years, beginning in 1924, Koelnmesse has been bringing people and markets together. Today it is the world’s fifth-largest exhibition complex.
At the TrendForum international experts will address market-relevant industry themes.
Kind + Jugend annually confers its Innovation Awards for, particularly outstanding product developments. In addition, the Kids Design Award recognizes one outstanding concept and/or design for children’s furniture and items.
