Q. Why attend a baby show?

A. There are two main reasons for attending The Baby Show

  • Products - a convenient and easy one-stop-shop for all the parent, newborn, and baby products that you could need. This includes expert product advice, plus the ability to handle and compare products, so you can choose the right ones to suit your family and budget.

  • Advice - it's daunting being a new parent, so we have numerous sources of advice and information on hand at our shows, from live stage talks to product demonstrations from brands directly.



Q. Wouldn't it be easier to just buy the products I need online?

A. Whilst there are many products that are easy to understand and can be purchased online, there are many that are not!

Take a pram for instance, do you know which one is easiest for you to use, will fit in your car, and has the storage you need? Or a baby carrier, do you know which one is most comfortable for you and most suited to your lifestyle? There is nothing better than physically trying out, touching and looking at products before you buy.

There are many baby products that are best seen in person to find the one that suits you!



Q. Are products at The Baby Show more expensive than online?

A. Our exhibitors are keen to sell products at the shows and are aware this may not happen if their products are more expensive than online.

You will typically find that many of the exhibitors have special show discounts, so offering great value compared to online. Many of the large buggy, car seat and furniture brands offer best prices guaranteed. Many will deliver bulky items straight to your home too.
