For visitors


You work in a school, kindergarten or other type of educational institution? You are a trainer or don't want to merely do justice to your educational task as a parent?

Then you can find everything you need for more efficient and optimised learning and teaching in your world of work or for your family at didacta 2019 in Cologne.

This includes materials and furniture for child care centres and schools as well as current text books and literature, learning software and apps, presentation technology, devices for vocational training, laboratory equipment and of course the large section of services to do with training, coaching or consulting.

More than 1,000 lectures, podium discussions, workshops and seminars invite the participants to listen and take part and provide them with excellent input for their educational practice.

From 19 to 23 February, Europe's largest education trade fair is stopping off in Cologne again - you definitely shouldn't miss this opportunity for your own further education and training!
