Pre-School Expo to launch on November 6th and 7th at Central Hall, Westminster.

The free show for parents with children aged between 18 months and five years has been launched by the company behind online publication Pre-School Magazine (

Although there are existing UK exhibitions covering the baby market, childcare professionals and education, until now there hasn’t been a show specifically designed for parents with pre-school children.

The show provides an opportunity for companies with products and services aimed at this demographic to raise their profile. Pre-School Expo aims to help exhibitors expand customer bases and meet parents face-to-face, offering the ideal opportunity to understand the current and changing needs of UK consumers.

The show is divided into four equal areas including Development and Play, Childcare and Education, Nutrition and Healthcare and Family Life and Safe Environment. Space will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

A range of seminars will run throughout both days of the show, organised in partnership with pre-school experts. There will be a crèche staffed by professionals, fully equipped to take care of young children.

A dedicated website allows parents to learn about the show and to pre- register their details. The website also has a section for potential trade exhibitors together with an on-line press room where journalists can pre-register their details and obtain press passes for the show.

Anne- Marie Peterson, editor of Pre-School Magazine said:

“Readers of Pre-School Magazine have already expressed great interest in a show that covers all aspects of modern parenting and presents the latest products and services that will help them maximise their children’s development”.
