Kind + Jugend opens 2023 show

1,000 suppliers from 46 countries will be exhibiting at Kind + Jugend, which opens its doors in Cologne today (Thursday 7 September, 2023).

The international show will put the spotlight on creativity and innovation in the baby and toddler industry from 7 – 9 September. Products on display cover a wide range of sectors, including travel systems, furniture, apparel, textiles, electronics and toys, among others.

This year, Kind + Jugend will cover 90,000 square meters across all levels of Hall 10, one level of Hall 11, and the Congress Centre East of  Koelnmesse in Cologne – a significant increase compared to 2022. The show is also welcoming the return of a number of exhibitors including Joie, Nuna and Graco, ABC Design, Britax Romer, Hauck, Nuby, Thule, Uppababy and more.

Around 92% of exhibitors this year are international, and visitors are expected from over 100 countries. Preregistrations show that around 60% of visitors are from outside Germany.

Hall 11.2 will house the Trend Forum, offering a diverse stage programme including practical presentations, exclusive insights and ground breaking trends.

The Immersive Shopping area highlights innovative technology and features that can be used in B2C and B2B channels. Meanwhile, the Start-Up area in Halls 10.1 and 10.2 showcases young companies from a range of countries.

This morning at 11am, in Hall 11.2, the show will open with the award ceremony for the Kind + Jugend Innovation Awards, incorporating the new Midwives’ Choice award.
