Evolution of Kids India continues

Published on: 12th April 2018

New Sports Arena for sports and outdoor products announced, while over 70% of the exhibition space is already booked.

India’s largest B2B trade fair for toys, children’s products and sports goods will open its doors for the sixth time from 4th–6th September 2018 at the Bombay Convention Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.

More than 70% of the space has already been booked. The trade fair is organised by Spielwarenmesse India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Spielwarenmesse eG, which is responsible for the world’s largest toy fair in Nuremberg.

Katharina Janotta, managing director, Spielwarenmesse India, commented: “The Indian trade fair has proven itself an industry platform from the very beginning and keeps all participants in the loop on innovations, trends and the latest industry topics. Being so well-connected both nationally and internationally, Mumbai is the ideal location for an international business platform like Kids India. Every year we witness new interest groups and rising demands; innovation and new interest zones or special areas have become a vital part of Kids India.”

The Sports Arena will offer participants an exclusive opportunity to gain first-hand experience of sports products directly at the trade fair. Exhibitors will be able to invite trade visitors to this area to try out the products and innovations the sports industry has to offer.

The TrendingNow special area will also return. This platform for trend products and innovative toys was well received at its debut last year. It will showcase products that suit the trending themes for 2018: Tech Toys – toys with integrated technology – and Express Yourself, toys that encourage children to be creative and imaginative.

As a business and networking platform, Kids India is also a useful place to address key industry topics. During the scheduled panel discussions and presentations, participants will hear from experts and have the opportunity to discuss various topics. Expert panels will look at new toy guidelines and compliance with standards. Speakers will include industry professionals from renowned testing and inspection institutes, manufacturers and retailers.
