Kind + Jugend expands

K&J expanding exhibitor area and increasing the number segments


In the context of its constant growth, Kind + Jugend 2017 is expanding the exhibition area by hall 4.1 of Koelnmesse. Up to now, the leading international trade fair for children and toddler outfitting has utilised a gross area of around 100,000 m² distributed over five hall levels. This will be enlarged in 2017 to 110,000 m². In connection with this, a new distribution of the product segments is taking place, with the goal of designing the routes for trade buyers from around the world even more ideally. The more open structure thus provides optimal access to the neighbouring exhibition halls and meets the expectations of an efficient trade fair visit with an improved overview of the offering.


In addition to this, Kind + Jugend will this year focus on the themes of high quality design and decoration in the children's room, and to this purpose expand the Design Park into an independent and additional product segment, with products like carpets, wallpaper and decoration items from all over the world. 


The offer segment for the digital children's room will also be expanded. For example, "The Connected Kidsroom - The intelligent children's room" special area will celebrate its premiere at Kind + Jugend 2017, with the aim of bundling the themes of "digitalisation, digital aids and smart products" at one central location. The area should provide exhibitors with additional space to present their digital and smart product portfolio to the industry.
