Supporting parents in their journey is the focus of all my work, from books like Baby Sense to seminars and talks. It has always been a dream to combine my seminar events with an interactive show event. With great excitement I have joined up with Clarion to bring South African parents The Baby Show and #MeetUP.

“This being our first consumer show in the UK and after doing others in Europe, we've found that you do get a lot of your money at The Baby Show. Besides your stand you get drop off time, storage, marketing and PR opportunities that aren't often included in other shows. We've been busy all weekend with consumers and a lot of trade - in fact this show has been better for trade opportunities than some of the trade events we've been to.”

“Bursting with excitement and anticipation – the show provided us with the perfect platform to showcase our new and exclusive collections in its entirety to the Great British public for the first time. With an ever-increasing footfall to the stand, it is essential for us to maintain a strong presence at these shows, illustrating our tireless ambition to develop direct relationships with our consumers. Clarion Events and their PR team were superb throughout the organizational stage, right through to the execution of the show itself, whilst providing continuous support throughout”
