Boost in bookings for Harrogate

Nursery companies from around the world are snapping space up fast at the UK’s only nursery trade show – Harrogate International Nursery Fair which takes place from 29 to 31 March 2015.

Adrian Sneyd, the show organiser, reports that more than 150 exhibitors are already confirmed stating: “It appears that after Christmas, many companies have realised that Harrogate is the only UK opportunity this year to promote new ranges and meet new customers and we have literally been inundated with bookings. We are still processing numerous applications and are confident that we will have in excess of 170 exhibitors at the show this year.”

Harrogate is delighted to welcome some fantastic new international exhibitors in 2015 including Italian Peg Perego, which brings an innovative range of wheeled goods including pushchairs, prams and ride on toys; and also from Italy, OK Baby with a diverse range of products from bathing and hygiene equipment to bike seats and helmets.

Also new is Lapsi with an impressive stand in Hall M displaying its extensive range of furniture, buggies, strollers and accessories; and Clever Clogs bringing its six brands to Hall C including Orbit Baby and Timi & Leslie.

The show also welcomes the return of previous exhibitors such as Tutti Bambini with its catalogue of nursery furniture, cots and nursery sets; plus Venicci &Bebetto with its stunning collection of prams and accessories.

Retailers seeking pre-school toys and educational ranges will be spoilt for choice this year with an influx of toy companies exhibiting. These include Golden Bear Toys with its range of licensed favourites including Bananas in Pyjamas, CBeebies Bugs and Peppa Pig (to name just a few); and GALT with huge range of toys and puzzles including a new range of 21 developmental toys for baby’s first year and beyond. This has been developed with Dr Miriam Stoppard, the UK’s most trusted parenting expert, who will be attending the show.
