Taking Part at the Shows

The Baby & Toddler Show takes place 5 times per year with spring and autumn editions at each venue:

*Sandown Park, Surrey (13-15 April & 7-9 September 2018)
*EventCity, Manchester (16-18 March & 28-30 September 2018)
*SEC, Glasgow (27-29 April 2018)

These exciting events are designed to deliver a strong footfall to venues in areas that are not served by any other major baby and toddler event.

With approx. 11,000 visitors per show and approx. 100 exhibitors, our exhibitor/visitor ratio is very strong, offering you an opportunity to engage, capture data and trade successfully to 100% of the audience base of thousands of pregnant women and new mums from across the North West and the South East.

Whether you are a large commercial brand, independent business, service provider or local organisation, this is a show for everyone.

The number of brands that exhibit or sponsor within each category is strictly limited to enable each business the chance to make a strong return on investment and gain significant brand recognition. If you have direct competition, make sure you book in ahead of them, before the category is closed.
