For already established companies, the Innovation Award is a “reward” of the special kind for exceptional and innovative products of the coming season. It is accompanied by a seal indicating the outstanding quality of a product and distinguishing it from others of its kind as internationally familiar sales promotion. With the Innovation Award, Kind + Jugend honours the great innovative strength of the industry. This year there was a total of 166 submissions from 27 countries.

The Innovation Award will also be conferred on 15 September at 10:00 a.m. in Hall 10.1.

The world’s best children’s outfitting products as seen by consumers are presented with the Consumer Award. What is especially well-received? What are the “favourite products” of people who use them everyday? The international manufacturers and traders receive valuable information on products that are especially well-received in their countries. Leading parents’ magazines and portals worldwide are the cooperation partners of the Kind + Jugend Consumer Award. This year Germany (new with 1st Steps), the Netherlands (Baby Stuf), Austria (NEW MOM), Poland (Branża Dziecięca), Russia (Rodi), Turkey (TURKIYE COCUK) and a new partner, France (Parole de Mammans), are participating.
