Show Features

EVENT RUNS 10AM – 4PM EACH DAY

TOP BRANDS & GEAR
With over 100 top pregnancy, baby, toddler, and family brands from all over the world, as well as local goods and services, the Show offers an incredibly helpful education in shopping for baby.

Speakers Seminars

SPEAKERS & SEMINARS
Beginning with the keynote speaker, the BabyGuy Jamie Grayson, there will be so many good speakers this year! We recommend that you take a minute to review the seminar schedule, and make a note of the seminars you don’t want to miss. Chances are that you will meet and hear not one but many people who can answer your questions on anything related to bump, pregnancy, baby, and parenting.

STROLLER TEST TRACK
A truly unique feature of the Show, the big test track simulates real world obstacles including gravel, grass, bumps, gates, cobblestone, and street grates—allowing parents to “test drive” the great variety of stroller models from an array of top brands at the Show!
