About Us


In response to the latest government announcement highlighting pregnant women as an at-risk group in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Clarion Events has confirmed its decision to postpone The Baby Show NEC event on 15 – 17 May 2020.
The new show date is currently under review and will be announced in the coming days. Please note that The Baby Show Olympia (23 - 25 October 2020) and both Baby to Toddlers Shows (ExCeL 14 - 15 November and NEC 5 - 6 December 2020) will be going ahead as planned.
Zoë Bonser, Show Director has commented, “Whilst we would love for the show to take place in May, the wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, staff and their families is of utmost importance to us. We are all very sad to have to postpone the show but this is absolutely the right thing to do in light of the current pandemic and clear Government guidelines.”
Tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date. We will be in touch with all our visitors as soon as we have more information to share. We will keep you updated via our newsletters, website and social media channels.
From the team here at the Baby Show and Clarion Events we wish all those affected by the Coronavirus a speedy recovery and look forward to welcoming you to the show later in the year.
