ABC KIDS EXPO, CMBE ASIA AND BPA/ HARROGATE NURSERY FAIR FORGE ALLIANCE
After extensive talks designed to provide global opportunities for the world’s baby and children’s manufacturers and retailers, ABC Kids Expo, CBME Asia and the Harrogate Nursery Fair/Baby Products Association have formed an alliance of mutual cooperation and reciprocal pavilions in each other’s shows. The ABC Kids Expo, held annually, is the largest North American baby, maternity and juvenile products exhibition, UBM Asia’s CBME (Child, Baby, Maternity Expo) Asia is the largest Chinese exhibition in this sector and the Harrogate Nursery Show is the largest of its kind in the UK.
Mr. Larry Schur, President of the ABC Kids Expo said, “Based on exhibitor attendance and inquiries at the international session held during the ABC show last month, many of our exhibitors have expressed an interest in establishing relationships overseas. We look forward to facilitating their experience and generating export opportunities for them by having a USA/ABC Pavilion in both China and the UK next year. We are also excited by the potential to increase both exhibitor and attendee UK and Chinese participation at the ABC Kids Expo going forward.”
Due to the challenges of exhibiting internationally, all show management agreed that providing a turnkey exhibit for new-to-market companies was essential. Ms. Margaret Ma, Managing Director of UBM Asia concurred, “Rules and regulations vary from country to country. Country pavilions enable small and medium sized companies to have a far larger presence than exhibiting alone.”
Robert Anslow, Managing Director of the Harrogate Nursery Fair said that his exhibitors had named both the USA and China as places they were interested in going, “so this alliance helps us help our clients be more successful.” Added Luke Burns, Chairman of the Baby Products Association, “We look forward to the opportunity to warmly welcome ABC and UBM event participants and help them market their products in our country.”
