Exhibitor Testimonials

The comments from our exhibitors speak volumes and it’s clear to see why so many suppliers return to our Baby & Toddler Shows time and time again.
“We really look forward to exhibiting at the Baby & Toddler shows as the team are all lovely to work with and make the whole experience stress free. Every question or query is dealt with and solved extremely efficiently; they just make us feel cared for! We exhibit at both Manchester and Sandown, four shows per year, all shows are really well attended and our sales reflect that. Every show continues to exceed our expectations and we cannot see any reason why the Baby & Toddler shows would not be included in our event calendar for many years to come.” Tracey Rixon, Marketing Manager, MAM UK Ltd

In short we would highly recommend exhibiting at the Baby & Toddler Show.” Chris Clarke, Marketing Manager (UK & International), NUK
“The Baby & Toddler Shows are an absolute must in our calendar, not only is the team so easy to work with but the events themselves are a brilliant revenue-generator. We are signed up to all 4 shows and find these are a great spread across the year and also the country. As a distributor, we don’t often meet our end-customer so it is great to interact with so many of them at the shows!” Lauren Harris, Marketing & Events Coordinator, Cheeky Rascals

“We really enjoyed our first Baby and Toddler show at Sandown this year, I wish we started doing them sooner! There were lovely customers, a friendly atmosphere and a manageable sized event with a carefully selected range of quality exhibitors, which all contributed to it being our most successful 3 day show ever. From the ease of setting up through to the helpful operations team and it being a lovely bright venue meant it was a logistically so much easier and nicer for us than the big shows as well. Thanks Mercury events - we’ve signed for three more shows next year!” Emily Goodall, Owner and Founder, BundleBean Ltd
“Sandown is such a friendly atmosphere from start to finish. The organisers are always on hand to help make set up and breakdown a joy rather than the usual nightmare. We offer a luxury high end product so Sandown is the perfect location and sales this year exceeded our expectations. We have already signed up for next year and thank Mercury for continuing to create such a well organised and beautifully curated event. I always feel I am in good hands and you are always careful not to dilute the mix but instead always source lovely and individual brands for mothers and babies who understand quality is key.” Keri Jamieson, Designer and Owner, KeriKit
“This year was our first year exhibiting at Sandown and we have already booked for the two Sandown shows next year.

Lots of customers specifically come for their "to-buy-list", we have not had one minute free, it has been a very consistent busy show for us all the way through (even on a Friday!) and our baby carriers were a hit, we sold out completely on our best sellers, making a new record of our baby show sales. The organiser has done a great job in getting in customers who will spend. Well done!” Sheena Woods, Managing Director, MaByLand

“We exhibited at the Baby & Toddler Show for the first time in April 2015 and our expectations were greatly surpassed following 3 days at Sandown Park. Even though it was the first time the Baby & Toddler Show was held at Sandown Park, the organisers catered for our needs to ensure we had a great show. The footfall was immense for us and given Sarah helped us with the location of our stand, we were able to maximise interest and exposure of Junior Joy, our baby brand. Great to work with a well organised show and we are looking forward to our second time exhibiting at Sandown.” Shailan Vora, Director, Alami International Limited (t/a Junior Joy)
