Cologne: 03.–05.09.2024 #kindundjugend


Your business in safe hands

We look forward to reviving the industry together with you!

The essence of a trade fair is face-to-face interaction: in order to ensure that your networking is as safe and successful as possible, even in times of Corona, we have developed a series of measures in accordance with the Corona Protection Ordinance of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and in close cooperation with the authorities in Cologne. These measures interlock seamlessly and regulate the cooperation at the trade fair. Our aim: to guarantee professional protection at the highest level and create an environment in which your business can grow again.

Find out more here or download the complete list of measures.

Of course, in case of questions our trade fair team is personally available for you at any time.


We promise you that we will do everything we can to guarantee the safety of our exhibitors, visitors and partners in the best possible way.
