Harrogate international Nursery Fair has announced its show dates for next year as Tuesday 28th March to Thursday 30th March 2017, opening mid-week for the very first time.

Another great show for retailers

The doors to Harrogate International Nursery Fair 2016 closed today on another successful event and the organisers would like to thank all of the exhibitors, retailers and buyers who turned up to support the show. There were lots of interesting new products on display and we hope that you found some great new lines to offer your customers in coming months. Ian Davidson of Babyliscious based in Liverpool, who attends Harrogate every year, commented: “The show this year had a lovely relaxed feel was easy to get around with no rushing from stand to stand or waiting for appointments. There were  loads of new items to see an plenty of pick up lines and gift ideas such as the MatchstickMonkey,  Little Saints Benbat Collection and Tidy Freaks car travel accessories to name a few. It was lovely too meet new exhibitors from far and wide and also see some old names back again such as Navington, X-lander and Storksak. There were some great offers from many exhibitors and amazing new colourways from EGG. I saw so many beautiful changing bags and a whole lot more exciting new Polish designs, plus strollers, bedding and accessories from Europe that have not been before. We spent over two days at the show and we still did not fit it all in properly. Anyone who attended for just a few hours must have missed an awful lot of amazing new products.” Business appears to have been brisk all round with many exhibitors pleased to have seen not only the majority of major buyers who attend the show each year, but a good turnout of new independent retailers too. Claire Mitchell of Chillipeeps – an innovative teat which attaches to bottles and cartons, said: “We’ve had a great show and have seen a lot more independents this year than we did in 2015. In fact we took more orders just on Sunday than we did for the entire duration of the show last year!” The dates for next year’s show will be announced soon and the organising team looks forward to welcoming exhibitors and visitors back to Harrogate in 2017.

Award winners announced

There were celebrations (as well as sore heads) on exhibitor stands at the show today after the winners of the BPA’s annual industry awards were announced at the Majestic Hotel last night. The prize for best new product for 2016 was scooped by BabyStyle UK Ltd for its new Hybrid Edge pushchair with the judges commenting: “This pushchair has many unique features, its super light weight, incredibly versatile and great value for money.” A full list of BANTA winners can be seen onthe BPA website at www.thebpa.eu The winners of the BPA’s Concept & Innovation Awards were also announced as Mohammed and Akbar Dedat and Lesley Cartwright Taylor. Mohammed and Akbar’s product won the Concept Award for Baby Throne, a bathing aid for showering babies in homes where no bath is available. The judges thought that this product idea would be particularly popular in countries where traditional baths are rarely fitted into bathrooms these days. Lesley’s product, which won the Innovation Award, is Kiddierail – a child sized, height adjustable hand rail for adult stair cases to make ascending and descending stair cases safe for young children. The judges were impressed with this innovation, having seen nothing else like it in the industry and believing there to be a real market need. Both of these products can be seen first-hand in Hall H on Stands H8 and H9. There is still time to visit the show today (Tuesday). The doors are open from 9.00am to 4.00pm…
