Kind + Jugend in top form – the entire world meets in Cologne

Full aisles, a good mood and good business opportunities: The Kind + Jugend 2014 came to a successful close on Sunday and again surpassed a number of records.

Stand: Ergobaby, Halle 11.1

Over 20,000 trade visitors from 109 countries experienced at Kind + Jugend 2014 what the new record number of 1,052 exhibitors from 51 countries had to offer. Numerous content and happy faces from all around the world have shown us that Kind + Jugend 2014 was a major success.

The diversity of exhibitors, who covered almost the entire baby and children’s outfitting sector, was however not the only reason for the good mood on the trade fair grounds. The special shows and its supporting programme as well are evidence of how agile and versatile the industry is.

The Design Park, which after its premiere last year, once again presented a range of children’s furniture, toys and living accessories by international designers, was well visited on all days of the trade fair. The same applies for the ‘future of kids design‘ special show, where ten prototypes for children’s furniture created by young designers were presented.

The designers and all of the trade visitors were also able to take a glance into the possible future in the ‘Young innovative companies’ sector. The funding programme of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Technology supports young companies and start-ups in marketing their products via trade fairs and has been an integral part of Kind + Jugend since 2010.

The second edition of the Trend Forum also proved extremely popular again. International experts from the trade, field of science and media offered background information on market structures, new distribution channels in the online and offline area as well as on safety themes and innovative design possibilities for the presentation of goods in the scope of lectures and discussion rounds.

The award ceremony of the Kind + Jugend Innovation Award in eight categories traditionally marked the start of the trade fair, this year for the very first time together with the premiere of the G+J | Family Consumer Awards.  You can find all information on this year’s winners in our blog post.

We hope that the trade show has been just inspiring for you, the exhibitors and the visitors, as it has been for us. And we are already looking forward to welcoming you in Cologne again next year:
