Harrogate International Nursery Fair News

28th - 30th March 2017

Harrogate International Centre, Harrogate

Harrogate International Nursery Fair is a not-to-be missed event for anyone in the baby products industry and is the UK’s only nursery trade show. This takes place each March in the beautiful North Yorkshire town of Harrogate.

The Baby Products Association has a close working relationship with the show and stages its Baby and Nursery Trade Awards (BANTAs) and also the Concept & Innovation Awards at the show (more information can be found about these in the Awards section of this website).

Association members exhibiting at Harrogate International Nursery Fair receive a significant discount, which depending on the size of stand and whether it is shell scheme or space only, can be between 12 and 17 per cent.

Visit the show website for more information about exhibiting, or contact Adrian Sneyd on 01902 880906 or email: adrian@nurseryfair.com

Here's what some of Harrogate's exhibitors and visitors have to say:

Andy Crane – BabyStyle

“Harrogate 2016 was good for BabyStyle  as we had more time to see our retailers and enjoyed the time catching up with them.  This in-turn meant we had more time to show all of our range to them, and of course we gave them all a full demonstration of the new Hybrid stroller.”

Richard Bamforth - DCUK

“DCUK had a very successful show and we saw over 80% of our existing customer base and had some very interesting new sales leads. For the second year, retailers were able to spend more quality time with us and we had a very successful sell in of new brands.  A very busy and worthwhile three days.”

Helen Hickman, Bumpstart Baby Shop

 “I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Harrogate this year.  I found that my two (full) days at the show were extremely constructive and I had great meetings with current suppliers, re-engaged with former suppliers and found a couple of new suppliers whom I am sure we will do well with.  The atmosphere was as always very friendly and it was lovely to meet up with so many retailers that I am getting to know well.

I truly think that the suppliers and retailers who did not attend truly missed out on a golden opportunity to showcase the many wonderful products and services available to the Nursery Industry.”

Alex Black – Nimans

“Harrogate was extremely valuable for us in 2016. It was a great opportunity to showcase the new look Nimans Home and our much extended and comprehensive baby tech solutions - we had a positive reaction to the range and look forward to returning in 2017 to further our success.”

Sinead Murphy – Shnuggle

"The Harrogate Show has done it again! We're really pleased with the visitors to our stand and of course the new business. Independent Nursery Stores and Major Retailers were all out in force. The best place to see the latest baby product innovation coming out of the U.K."

Alan Gear - Thule Outdoor Ltd

“Our 2nd year at Harrogate proved very beneficial with lots of new retailers interested in ranging our ‘Thule Active With Kids’ products, especially the Urban Glide Stroller and the Sapling Elite Child Carrier. Looking forward to being there again next year.”

Von Ryan Sy – Nimble Babies

“The best baby products can be found at Harrogate International Nursery Fair, and in 2016 we attended for the first time as exhibitors. It was very busy at Nimble Babies HQ in the few weeks prior to the show as we prepared getting our stand ready, printing all marketing materials, and making sure we have a great product demo to explain what Nimble Babies Milk Buster is about.

It was a completely new experience for us. It was quite tiring as we were stood up for almost eight hours each day but it was such a fulfilling experience that we will never forget. We got to meet buyers from both national and independent retailers in the UK and abroad every ten minutes.

It was a great time for us to really showcase our product to the buyers and we got a real buzz out of it because the major retailers who already said “no” to us a few months ago have finally said “yes” after seeing who we are and understanding better why mums like Nimble Babies Milk Buster and how it can transform the experience of washing baby bottles.

We also had a chance to speak to the press who were great in encouraging new businesses like ours and have really shown support. We were also very inspired by the chats we’ve had with other entrepreneurs from both new and established businesses as you see the baby products they’ve worked hard for come into life at the show. It made us so proud to be part of this highly innovative and creative baby industry.”
