“And the winner is…” – Can a trade fair get off to a better start than with the conferring of honours for innovative products and creative design concepts? This is part of the good tradition of Kind + Jugend. With the now 13th ceremonious conferring of the Innovation Awards and the KIDS DESIGN AWARD, the first day of the trade fair this year once again brought a real highlight.

Exchange online and offline – A guest commentary on Kind + Jugend 2015 from the Matchmaking365-Community

Norman Dahl, Community Manager of the “Matchmaking365-Community”, shares his impressions about his fair visit at Kind + Jugend 2015 and conversations with exhibitors concerning the new online service:

On September 10 the Kind + Jugend 2015 trade fair started. With this, exhibitors and trade visitors from all over the world came together. Many of them already met before the trade fair online in the Matchmaking365-Community and exchanged industry news. This was a good opportunity to visit the trade fair together with our project manager of the Matchmaking365 service, to collect impressions and experiences. Because this will help us to develop our service further.
