The "Kind + Jugend" describes itself as the leading international trade fair for children's and toddler equipment. Why she still has the addition "youth" has not really become clear to me. I personally also assumed that there would be suitable offers for children aged 4 to 12 years. I understand that under the term youth (liche). Here, in my opinion, there is also the possibility for the organizer to lure even more exhibitors and visitors into the exhibition halls if he expands the offer.
The numbers of the fair
Well over 1,000 exhibitors from all over the world and more than 20,000 trade visitors from over 110 countries around the world are a sign of a successful business approach. As a manufacturer, you can find new customers and sales markets here. Here exhibitors and buyers can certainly do successful business. And all this in our exhibition in Cologne Deutz !

Pregnancy fashion barely seen
We walked through the aisles and were able to get a rough overview . However, we believe that the category Fashion for the Pregnant Woman has been neglected at this fair. Although it is or was listed as a topic of this fair, we could not really find a nice stand on the subject of maternity wear or maternity wear. Has the sales topic actually shifted more into online business and only mastered it large companies such as Zalando or Otto did the sales business on the Internet. We hope not, because there is nothing better than looking at the fashion on site in a wonderful shop! We hope that there will soon be more exhibitors on this topic at Kind und Jugend!
I visited the fair briefly with my children and unfortunately had to find that almost only toddlers and baby products were offered. My children are 10 and 13 years old and of course couldn't find anything interesting for them there. We quickly agreed on one thing: We have never seen so many strollers and cots in a heap! In addition, of course, a whole lot of furniture, for children and babies. I find another luxury bathtub especially worth mentioning for babies. We all know the plastic tubs to bathe the little ones ... forget them and have a look here:
Overall, the trade fair is therefore highly recommended if you are looking for or want to sell products and articles for small children.
My conclusion is: The youth was clearly too short and there was almost nothing going on at the fair on Sunday? At least that was my impression.
