Innovation Award 2022

The award ceremony of the Innovation Award is a very special highlight of Kind & Jugend. The distinctions honour exceptional contributions in the further development of the baby and toddler outfitting industry in 9 categories.

Make sure your innovative product is on board!

In your capacity as an exhibitor or co-exhibitor make use of the opportunity to present your new products right at the heart of the industry.

  • Simply register your product using the official form by 1 July 2022.

In July you will receive notification as to whether your product fulfils the criteria and has been accepted for participation in the competition.

The judging session, during which the nominees will be decided, will take place on 11 August 2022. We have a seal ready at hand for all nominees as well as a place on our website, where all of the nominated products will be presented.

Finally, the award ceremony that attracts plenty of media coverage will be held on the stage of the Trend Forum when the trade fair opens on 8 September 2022. Here, one winner per category will be announced.

In addition to the award itself, all of the winners receive a winner's seal, which is a true quality hallmark for the international trade and an efficient sales argument for you!
