Kind + Jugend reports growth for 2018

The prospects for this year’s Kind + Jugend show (taking place from 20 – 23 September) are looking good, as the nursery trade show reports a boost in both exhibitor numbers and international spread.

Around 1,250 exhibitors will be showcasing their newest ranges and latest innovations at the show, an increase of almost 2% on 2017. They will also be travelling to the show from 53 countries (an increase on last year’s 49), with international companies making up  86% of the exhibitor list.

This boost follows a general trend for the show, which has reported that both exhibitor and visitor numbers have doubled since 2004 – an increase of 96.7% in the number of visitors and 154% for exhibitors.

Country-specific pavilions from France, the United Kingdom, South Korea, Latvia, Norway, Russia, Singapore, Spain and the USA will each be showcasing products from their nation’s exhibitors.

More than 22,000 trade visitors from around the world are also expected to attend the show, strengthening the prospects for a successful show, as the industry views the ongoing baby boom in a positive light.

Kind + Jugend will also be underlining its importance as a trend barometer and display window for industry and commerce with its attractive event programme.
