The UK’s only nursery trade show – Harrogate Nursery Fair – which takes place from 24th to 26th March is now only round the corner.
It's already completely sold out and will offer eight halls of new toys and gift ranges for any pre-school retailer.
New developments for the show this year include a North American Pavilion with 10 participating US companies launching into the UK market for the first time.
Representatives from China will also be attending with a view to staging similar country specific Pavilions in the future.
Harrogate also continues to work closely with the Baby Products Association and will be hosting its Concept & Innovation Awards for the first time. The winners will be announced on the Concept & Innovation Stand in Hall G on Monday 25th March.
The BPA will be staging its Baby and Nursery Trade Awards (BANTAs) which are open to entry for all companies exhibiting at the show and gives visitors the opportunity to view those products which, in the judges’ opinion, are the most outstanding at the show. The winners of these prestigious awards will be announced at the Party & BANTA Awards night which takes place at the Majestic Hotel on Sunday 24th March.
Finally, if you are interested in the latest nursery industry market trends, market research company NPD will be giving an eye-opening presentation at 8.45am on Monday 25th March.
Andrew Griffiths and Jez Fraser-Hook will share some actual top line findings from full year 2012 data in the UK, including some interesting facts and figures. This is free to attend and open to all.
