It was announced this week that the planned Kind + Jugend 2021 will be one week earlier and shortened by one day.

Understandably due to Covid-19, for the first time in its 60 years history, Kind + Jugend will not be taking place this year.  The annual Kind + Jugend show is the central international trade and information platform for Koelnmesse, attracting visitors from around the globe.

The good news is that the focus is now on 2021. Kind + Jugend 2021 will be pushed forward by a week in 2021 and shortened by a day. It will take place from Thursday 9th September to Saturday 11th September 2021.  

A streamlined exhibition programme, optimised hall plan, and events schedule will focus on central content themes for the industry. This concept is reinforced by the modernised Kind + Jugend logo, with new cool colours and reduced typography.

In order to fill the waiting time until Kind + Jugend 2021, Koelnmesse will offer various digital content online  and across social media channels from the original Kind + Jugend dates for 2020.
