The Baby Show blog on Baby Show news from BabyExpoUK ….

We’ve known for a while, but are now able to give you the latest news from BabyExpoUK, who are launching a new 2 day Baby Show to take place on September 29 & 30 2012 at thecentre:mk Milton Keynes….

Why Milton Keynes?

The venue attracts on average over half a million visitors per week, rising to one million for special events. The show will feature all the elements which go to make the flagship Brighton events such a success – a wealth of exhibitors from all over the UK showcasing a range of products for the pre-conception to primary age markets, partnership with key players in the industry, targeted advertising and a dynamic social media campaign. There will be a large stage area with key guest speakers, demo classes, activities and special events and we are delighted that Jo Tantum, the UK’s #1 baby sleep expert, best-selling author and regular Prima Baby columnist will be joining us to officially open the show. To visit the new website and watch film testimonials from last year’s clients see here

thecentre:mk offers a fabulous nearly 2000 m2 of ‘blank canvas’ exhibition space, all on one level, in one, very central high profile location and exhibitors are already booking fast – Click here for the floorplan – As a shopping centre, the facility is already set up for huge visitor numbers in terms of parking, restaurant facilities, award-winning baby change/breast feeding areas, accessibility and superb signage in the surrounding areas and within. With significant numbers of young families choosing this Region to set up home, thecentre:mk offers very ‘friendly family facilities’ to include buggies, rein hire and ID wristbands not to mention ‘Kiddy Cars’ rental! All of which make an organiser’s life less challenging and enable us to focus on the content of the event.

What will it cost to visit?

There will be no entrance charge for the general public but there will be a ‘Privilege Shoppers’ opening hour on both days where those VERY keen visitors can access the event 1st. They will be badged accordingly so exhibitors can spot them throughout the day.

What will it cost to exhibit?

Price per m2 for this 2 day event is currently £77 per metre + VAT but this is the Early Bird rate and only valid for a short while. To take advantage of this special price deal and the very best pitches, exhibitors should reserve their space now at

So, who is going as a visitor? And who will be going as an exhibitor? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on BabyExpoUK’s growth :)
