Booking for the Baby Products Association’s UK Pavilion at Kind + Jugend – which takes place in Cologne, Germany from 17 to 20 September 2020 – is now open and manufacturers and suppliers are encouraged to book early to secure their desired location at the show.
This year, the UK Pavilion will be moving to a new, improved location in Hall 2 which promises a better flow and visitor footfall while still being immediately accessible from the west entrance.
Companies which exhibited in the UK Pavilion last year will be given priority, after which requests will be accepted from new applicants and space allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
“The climate has never been more challenging for the nursery industry and Kind + Jugend offers companies the prospect to get business back on track and orders coming in,” said Adrian Sneyd, UK Pavilion organiser. ” The show is attended by retailers and buyers from around the world and offers an unrivalled opportunity to make international exporting contacts.”
Prior to the coronavirus outbreak, the Department of International Trade (DIT) had allocated TAP grants for Kind + Jugend and the BPA is currently waiting for confirmation that this still stands. In addition, the BPA will not invoice any companies booking space in the UK Pavilion until 1 July 2020. The Association has received confirmation from Koelnemesse that should the event be cancelled due to Covid-19, full refunds will be issued.
