With over 850 exhibitors from more than 40 countries, the organisers of Kind und Jugend believe it is well worth a visit for toy firms and retailers from the UK.

Running from September 15th to 18th at the Cologne Exhibition Centre, the show is billed as the trade show for kids’ first years. Around 20,000 visitors are expected.

Products include toys and games for babies and toddlers from prams and car seats to furniture, apparel and electronics. Newcomers will be among the 850 exhibitors – the show was nearly booked out four months before opening – and 80 per cent of exhibitors come from abroad.

This year, for the first time, there will be representatives from Spain, Turkey and Israel, as well as pavilions for Australia, US, Taiwan and China.

The Baby Product Association (BPA) will attend with 40 delegates from the UK.

“UK visitors will have the chance to not only meet British companies and international key accounts, but also young, innovative international firms which they would not normally be meeting this easily,” said a spokesperson from Koelnmesse.
