Sustainability, key at BKS + FIMI
For BabyKid Spain + FIMI, sustainability is essential and this will be demonstrated in this edition, which will be held from Thursday 26 to Saturday 28. During the event, visitors can learn about the eco collections, designed with sustainability as a guide and also participate in other activities that will serve exhibitors and visitors in this line.
One example will be the new Go Green space, an area where innovation, sustainability, design and technology are the protagonists and where you can see products that meet these characteristics.
In addition, the Sustainability Office of Cámara Valencia will have its own stand to advise on sustainability and even have a real-time diagnosis in this area.
