The UK Baby and Toddler Show will launch its first full-scale consumer edition in Liverpool next February.
The event, organised by UK Fashion Events, will launch a consumer show at the BT Convention Centre in Liverpool from 2 to 3 February 2013. More than 200 national and international exhibitors and 16,000 visitors are expected to attend.
The focus will be on all aspects of parenting for children aged up to four years old.
“This is the first time a show of this scale has been held in the North West; it has been composed to support parents every step of the way at such a wonderful but challenging time,” marketing and events manager Laura Davies said.
“Having a baby is a life-changing experience and we hope visitors will enjoy the show, which is being held for the first time in Liverpool.”
The Liverpool edition will feature a live seminar programme, and is being support by large and boutique brands ranging from the Liverpool Women’s Hospital to Mothercare, Smyths Toys and Birth to Potty.
UK Fashion Events also runs one-day shows in Leeds, Sheffield, Brighton, Cardiff, Bristol, Glasgow, Cheltenham, Bath, Wolverhampton, Chester and Nottingham.
BT Convention Centre owner, ACC Liverpool, has gone to tender for a new £40m exhibition centre, which is expected to be completed in late 2014 and provide 8,100sqm of additional event space in the city. A contractor was due to be announced in September.
