BabyExpo was born in 2007 in Brighton and organisers have hosted multiple shows in Sussex, Surrey and Milton Keynes. Organiser Clare Wingfield explains what prompted the expansion to Berkshire
‘We felt Berkshire with its high birth rates, family-friendly reputation and highly-populated urban areas was crying out for an established, high-quality BabyShow and family event. The local support has been amazing and we just can’t wait! The late November timing also offers a fabulous shopping opportunity with some delightful and inspiring Christmas gifts for little ones and mummies alike!
We are also very excited to find such a great venue. The Rivermead Leisure Complex hosts some of the UK’s major shows as well as National sporting events and concerts. Well known to local parents and the wider community its central and spacious with ground floor exhibition areas – so great for buggy access – with easy parking and modern facilities it easily meets the needs of our 100+ exhibitors and thousands of visitors.’
What’s On 4 Communications Director and BabyExpo founder Suzanne Borrell adds
‘We are delighted that Berkshire will play host to the 1st BabyExpo event to be produced and managed by one of our new franchisees Clare! This is a real ‘flagship’ show therefore and it’s already great to see that the BabyExpo South-East team will deliver an event to be proud of’
