Virtual Parent & Baby Show returns for May event

The virtual Parent & Baby Show is making a welcome return later this month, following a hugely successful debut event in April.

Following significant demand for online content from both new and expectant parents the team behind the The Virtual Parent & Baby Show have confirmed another show will be taking place from 29 – 30 May, 2020.

Over 4,000 customers joined the last three-day event, which took place in April. The programme was bursting with live content including talks and classes, expert videos and over 20 downloads designed to keep little ones entertained.

Nearly 70 brands that got involved, with all reporting a large increase in sales, a dramatic rise in website traffic and a surge in social media followers and database sign ups.

The May show will run over two days and is sponsored by leading nursery brand names Rockit, Didofy and Cuddledry, among others.

“Rockit is really excited to be sponsoring and exhibiting at the Virtual Parent and Baby Show,” said director Matt Dyson. “With the current COVID restrictions in place it is really important for us to find new ways to ‘meet’ our customers and demo our products.”

Entry to the online event is free and a busy timetable of talks, competitions and activities will offer customers a premium experience.

“We are so excited about the developments of the May show,” commented show founder Alex Atkinson. “April was such a great success and we are determined to come back bigger and better! We aim to reach 5,000 customers and we would love to work with even more national brands. There is such a demand online at the moment so it’s really exciting to be able to tap into this market in an innovative way to help support brands and offer parents a wealth of knowledge on many different topics.”
