The infalino is the big fair for expectant parents, young families and grandparents with around 70 exhibitors as well as a comprehensive lecture and information program. At infalino , young parents will find almost everything they need for babies in their early years.
exactly ten years ago, infalino started in Hanover. The infa baby fair has since developed into one of the largest baby and toddler fairs in Germany. With over 70 exhibitors and a unique information and lecture program, infalino will answer the questions that young and expectant parents have at infa on October 19 and 20, 2019.
The product range includes baby and toddler equipment, clothing, care products, baby food, highchairs, children’s toys, prams, safety seats for the car, and even fully furnished children’s rooms will be set up at the fair.

Service is also very important to infalino. Together with renowned companies, the trade fair offers young mothers a nursing lounge and sufficient baby changing rooms. Diapers, nursing pillows and care products are available here.
Uncertainty often spreads among expectant or young parents. Am I doing everything right? How can I guarantee my baby’s health? When will my child finally sleep through? These are just three of the many questions that concern parents. You will find the answers in the infalino lecture forum. Among other things, from the experts at the renowned children’s hospital Auf der Bult in Hanover. In the forum, doctors and nurses provide information on topics such as “Breastfeeding, yes or no?”, “Does anesthesia harm my child?”, “The sense and nonsense of vaccinations”. In addition, there are also valuable tips in the infalino lecture forum, for example regarding baby dental care, parental allowance etc.
Infalino will once again be part of the big children’s parenting cooking show KIDS, which is initiated by the Turnklubb zu Hannover (TKH) together with the LandesSportBund and the children’s sports school KISS. The children are involved in the kitchen work in a playful way and thus learn how much fun healthy cooking can be.
One of the most popular attractions at infalino has been the mobile photo studio of Hanoverian photographer Franz Fender and his team since the very beginning. The likeable photographer puts the offspring in the right light with soap bubbles, light effects, toys and a lot of passion and thus ensures unforgettable moments.
Another highlight for children of all ages is the weekend: the large infalino children’s festival. With bouncy castle fun, face painting, clowns, hands-on theater and much more.
With a slight increase in visitors, the infa 2019 ended on Sunday, October 20. A total of 180,000 people came to the exhibition center in the nine days of the event – around 2000 more than in the previous year.
After a long time, infa was again in the middle of the autumn vacation, which was a not inconsiderable task for the organizers. Carola Schwennsen, Managing Director of Heckmann’s specialist exhibitions: “We had to create real alternatives and incentives for a family vacation so that more visitors came to infa even during the week. We succeeded above all with the infa holiday festival, but also thanks to reduced admission prices. ”
The offer for children and adolescents at the holiday festival ranged from hands-on circus to bumper cars to trendy beach sports. There was also a recording studio for the kids, a styling bus, neon mini golf and much more. “Above all, our workshop program in the big circus tent, which in addition to artistry and juggling also included beat boxing, rap and hip hop dance courses, was very well received by the students and all workshops were fully booked,” said Schwennsen.
Also new this year was the trend show “AAA – Attractive. Selected. Excellent. ”In addition to renowned companies, start-ups and universities also presented their ideas, some of which are not yet commercially available. Visitors had the opportunity to test and evaluate the products in order to make their way into sales easier. AAA organizer Magnus Bade from Universal Design: “A very successful premiere! Our exhibition area was very well received by the visitors. Many ideas proved to be real crowd pullers and we were able to hold very intensive discussions. “
The daily cooking shows in the market hall were an absolute hit. Prominent guests and top chefs from the region delivered witty cooking and speech duels and, under the direction of moderator Christoph Dannowski, revealed many a favorite private recipe. Among them were the singers Laura Lato and Isabel Krämer, NDR bingo bear Michael Thürnau and others.
The short events infa creative on the first three infa days and the baby fair infalino on the last weekend, which was again accompanied by a large children’s festival, were particularly popular with visitors.
Satisfaction with most of the 1400 exhibitors. Matthias Köhler, owner of “The Coffee Jacket” from Chemnitz, who presented exclusive jackets and jackets made from recycled coffee bags for the first time at infa: “A very successful trade fair that was a lot of fun for us. People are willing to spend money on high-quality things and the response at the stand was very positive. ”
Carpet expert Frieder Schmid from “Ullmann. Living. Emphasize. ”From Oldenburg:“ I have been at infa for over 22 years and it was a successful trade fair again this year. We feel extremely well looked after, the catchment area is great and everything is well organized. We will be there again next year. “
And Brian Chemier from “No.Mi.No.U” from Vancouver, Canada: “For us it was a great German premiere and a very successful product launch. We are totally happy and very satisfied. “
The buying behavior of visitors was also positive. According to a representative survey by the Dortmund-based market research institute Gelszus, 88.9 percent bought or ordered something (previous year 89.4 percent) and spent an average of EUR 372.60 (previous year EUR 346.30).
Thus, the final conclusion of the organizers is mostly gratifying. Carola Schwennsen: “In times of ever increasing numbers of events and the thriving online trade, B2C fairs are a real challenge every year. However, we have shown that these challenges can be mastered. With a great team, fresh ideas and the common will to succeed. ”
