Kent Baby and Toddler Show looks to grow in 2013

The organiser of the first Kent Baby and Toddler Show is considering a larger exhibition hall for its second edition after a successful debut at the Kent Event Centre this month.
 
The show was held on 20 May in the Clive Emson Centre and attracted more than 2,000 visitors along with 65 exhibitors. The event was supported by the National Childbirth Trust, which was on-hand to provide advice and product assistance to attendees.
 
Other key features included a seminar from childrens’ food expert Fiona Faulkner and TV cartoon character Peppa Pig, who opened the one-day show.
 
“We had a hugely successful show and the Kent Event Centre was a perfect venue for us,” show organiser Teresa Gillam said.
 
“With many of our visitors turning up with buggies, it’s important to have lots of space. Inside the hall, the aisles were extra wide and that was so vital to the smooth running of the show.”
 
The Baby and Toddler Shows are organised by Teresa and her husband David Gillam and are also held annually in Sussex.
 
Gillam said the organiser is now considering one of the venue’s larger halls for its return in 2013. The Clive Emson Centre is 1,700sqm, while the venue’s Kent Pavilion is 3,000sqm.
 
Kent Event Centre said The Baby and Toddler Show was held just weeks after the venue staged a trade event for equine vets from across Europe. During the two-day course, 100 vets experienced hands-on sessions using live horses.
 
“We are constantly being asked to host a multitude of different functions and we always come up trumps for our customers,” Kent Event Centre events manager Alison Wallington claimed.
