As every year since 2007, we were going to be at the Kind und Jugend trade show in Cologne – one of the most important trade fairs for specialist retailer worldwide.

Besides the launch of the new manduca accessories  and a new LimitedEdition, it was mainly our stall itself that drew the visitors’ attention. After all, for our manduca’s fifth anniversary, our design agency Wolkenkratzer had come up with something truly special.

A stunning marquee in warm orange hues with a long, white ribbon running all the way around. Seeing the stall in its entirety for the first time was a truly precious moment for us.

As befits the five-year anniversary, our manduca occupied a prominent place …

… and the new accessories, too, were not to be overlooked – here, for instance, the ZipIns and the re-launched manduca Pouch.

All the previous weeks’ hard work paid off: The attendees’ response was amazing and all-out positive. The recognition and affirmation we received in our conversations with visitors made us feel grateful and shows us that we are on the right track.

For that new stall isn’t everything, even at a trade fair: to us, what’s most important and most pleasant are still the interactions with our customers. Renewing old acquaintances and making new ones … or simply sharing tipps and the talk of the day.

Our relaxed lounge offered the perfect place for longer talks and tired feet – a space to escape the buzz outside, to chat or to simply have a quiet cup of coffee.

All in all, the days at Kind und Jugend were amazing, exciting, memorable – and we would like to use this opportunity to once again offer our thanks to our co-workers, our visitors and customers, all those helping hands before and during the show, and to the team of Kind und Jugend. Thank you!

We’re already very much looking forward to next year!
