Check out ‘Best Buys’ at Harrogate
Once again, the Baby Products Association will be hosting its annual Baby and Nursery Trade Awards (BANTAs) at Harrogate this year and whilst they are only open for entry to exhibitors, they are a great indicator of ‘best buys’ to retailers and buyers attending the show.
The BANTAs are very different from consumer awards. They are trade only and judged by experts in the nursery industry who are not necessarily just looking at features in a product, but also take into consideration safety and desirability, practicality – and importantly with the current high cost of living – price point. For example, an all singing and dancing new pushchair might be bypassed by judges for pushchair with less features simply because they believe it would be more marketable for retailers due to price point.
Whilst attending the show, keep your eyes open for ‘Shortlisted’ and ‘Highly Commended’ certificates on exhibitors stands – and the category winners will be announced on the first day of the show (Sunday 15th October 2023).
Toynamics UK & Ireland will be exhibiting at Harrogate for the first time and is a multi-brand distributor with an extensive brand portfolio and a one-stop shop for retailers with products across a huge variety of toy categories and age ranges. Bringing must-haves made better from specialist international nursery brand Skip Hop, providing practical and multi-purpose solutions across the nursery category.
