UK nursery industry prepares for Harrogate

It’s full steam ahead for the UK nursery industry as bookings for Harrogate International Nursery Fair in March 2019 are steadily flowing in.

With a successful Kind+Jugend now firmly under its belt, the next important annual trade event for the UK nursery trade is now just a matter of months away.

Last year, the show enjoyed a refreshed layout, utilising new halls of the Harrogate Convention Centre. Almost all of the major names have rebooked these new positions for the 2019 show.

Hauck has confirmed its unique outside-facing stand position in the Kings Suite and Hall G is already almost sold out. Favourite companies returning to this hall include BabyStyle, Bebecar, Cuddles Collection, Obaby, Red Kite and Rosy Fuentes.

Hall Q welcomes the return of Cheeky Rascals, Peg Perego, UPPAbaby, Shnuggle, Sheldon, Roma Prams and Slumberland as well as Baby Travel UK and Unilove Baby with Mee-go, both new for 2019.

“We chose Harrogate as our first trade exhibition and were overwhelmed with support from the independent sector,” said Roma Pram’s Emma Charlesworth. “We signed up for next year as we can see the value that this show offers to both exhibitors and visitors.”

Adrian Sneyd, show organiser, urges companies interested in participating to secure their stand space early. “With last year’s new layout requiring some time to set up and communicate out to everyone we are very pleased with the response so far but would now urge companies still planning to exhibit to get in touch as soon as possible so they can get the best choice of stands still available.”
