Dates set for Kind + Jugend 2021

Although international  nursery trade show Kind + Jugend will not be taking place this year – for the fist time in its 60-year history – the dates have already been announced for the 2021 event, which will be taking place from Thursday 9 September to Saturday 11 September next year.

The new dates will see the fair moving forward by a full calendar week, but also reveal that next year’s show will be shorter by one day, with Saturday now the last day.

A statement from the show organisers Koelnmesse explained that ‘the shortening of the trade fair sends the right signal for the economic restart’.

A streamlined exhibition programme, optimised hall planning and a fully themed event programme will give the nursery and preschool industry a boost as the market moves forward. A new modernised Kind + Jugend logo symbolises this, radiating both objectivity and determination.

The hall optimisation originally planned for 2020 will now take effect in 2021, with the visitor flow now taking place exclusively over two levels, creating shorter routes and an optimised visit.

In the meantime, Koelnmesse will continue to offer digital content online and via its social media channels, as was planned for the original Kind + Jugend 2020 dates. As such, the Kids Design Award will still take place and will be announced on 17 September 2020.

Further content will follow at regular intervals in the coming months and be announced at
