The Harrogate Nursery Fair in association with the BPA recently agreed, in light of some major companies feeling that the interests of the BPA and the trade would be best served by joining forces with The Baby Show for the Trade, to review its October Harrogate Nursery Fair.
As a result of this review, the Harrogate Nursery Fair in Association with the BPA, will NOT go ahead in October. In an attempt to lessen the impact of this decision, Harrogate Nursery Fair in association with the BPA has arranged that all existing HNF October exhibitors will be able to transfer to the Baby Show for Trade with the equivalent stands and space at the Olympia show in London. Exhibitors transferring to the Baby Show for the Trade will have the same space cost as they have paid for at the Harrogate show. This decision in no way affects the Harrogate Nursery Fair in March 2011 which will continue to provide the same high quality exhibition for the Nursery Trade that is has done for the past 41 years.
Robert Anslow commented, "The BPA asked me to run their autumn show this year to allow companies to showcase their new lines following launches in Cologne this month. The decision by the BPA to now concentrate on a London event will allow Clarion to deliver a single solution to the issue of two UK autumn shows."
He continued, "The Harrogate Nursery Fair in March 2011 will continue to provide the same high quality exhibition for the Nursery Trade that is has done for the past 41 years. 200 exhibitors have already been allocated space for March 2011."
Andrew Ratcliffe, Chairman of the BPA stated, "We are pleased to be working with Clarion from now on to provide an autumn event showing new season products, which is focussed on providing return on investment for exhibitors, and return on time for retailers."
Lee Masters, Managing Director of Clarion added, "Working in partnership with leading associations in the markets we serve has always been the model for our successful trade shows. We are looking forward to working with the BPA not only in delivering a successful event for its members but also to support financially the important work it does in Safety and Standards."
"A central London event every autumn, delivered in partnership with the BPA is absolutely in the best interests of exhibitors and visitors alike. This is an unmissable opportunity for retailers to grow their businesses by buying profitable products at the right time from the widest possible choice of quality suppliers" he continued.
The Baby Show for Trade 2010 will now host Dorel, Britax, Chicco, Graco as well as Silver Cross, Maclaren, Bugaboo, Phil & Teds, Emmaljunga and Kiddy amongst 150+ exhibitors.
It is open from Sunday 10th to Tuesday 12th October at London Olympia.
