Kind + Jugend has announced it will present a “Special Edition” nursery industry event, staged in a Covid-safe manner in Hall 10 of the Cologne fair grounds.

This “Special Edition” of the normal (physical) trade fair will be organised with around 250 German and European exhibitors and further enhanced by online elements.

“The industry is missing its annual get-together in Cologne,” Oliver Frese, Chief Operating Officer of Koelnmesse, stated. “Together with the participating companies, we are convinced that the re-start in September will offer the industry important impulses.”

A current survey carried out among the trade visitors shows how high the trade’s interest is in Kind + Jugend with around half of the dealers from the European states interviewed planning to visit Kind + Jugend 2021. Due to the progress made with the vaccination campaigns particularly in the European states and the gradual lifting of travel restrictions, interest in business trips and visiting trade fairs is also increasing.

Companies that will not be able to attend the trade fair this year nevertheless do have the opportunity to present their companies on their own stand via a “Remote Booth Plus” programme. Included in this type of stand are stand staff who will take care of the respective company’s own products and guarantee direct contact with the industry.


The Kind + Jugend “Special Edition” will be staged in Hall 10 in compliance with all Corona regulations. To this end, Koelnmesse has developed an extensive package of measures under the name #B-SAFE4business, which interlock seamlessly and govern the interaction among all people present at the trade fair.
