“Harrogate is such an important show for the industry and Baby Jogger is so proud to be part of it. We surpassed last year’s sales at the show and were able to generate new leads, a great achievement for the team. As always,s we value the support of the indies and have some great relationships, the show gives us the chance to catch up, share news, products and opportunities for the future!” Helen Bloxham, Baby Jogger
“We had a great show. The most positive part was that retailers seemed to have allowed much more time this year and were really engaged with looking at ALL the ranges and newness that was on offer. We had a ‘Home Range’ for the first time this year and the buy in for shop floor models was terrific. So many retailers backing us with trying these products out, plus really positive comments across the whole range.
I am delighted overall, we saw pretty much every customer and also every major that we deal with, some new customers but mainly existing loyal retailers. We also had eight international customers from as far as Uzbekistan to see our new offerings and business from outside the UK was also very successful.
As always many other talks with other brands and a real sense of camaraderie from the whole trade. Good show, good fun, and good networking with new and old friends. Harrogate is back with a bang and Adrian and his team put on another winning show.” Andy Crane, BabyStyle
“Bebecar UK had a fantastic show. Our new Prive range was an instant hit with our stockists who love the Bebecar sparkle and the woven fabrics. Our stunning new White Rose Stylo Class was a favourite with our stockists also and all customers who showed off the range at the show on their socials got lots of great reactions. We also showed our new compact Wei pushchair + travel system, our stunning spot twin and lots of great quality Trama furniture as well as East Coast Nursery bedding and accessories. We would like to say a massive thank you to all the customers we got to see, we really do love seeing you all for a glass of port and a catch up.” Cassie Beecroft , Bebecar UK Sales Manager
“We had a great show and were able to meet with lots of current and new customers (a lot of whom we had not yet been able to meet face to face), and also met with lots of potential accounts as well. We took some good orders and have already had quite a few come through since returning to the office. Overall, we felt the show was very successful – it was well organised, well communicated, well laid out and offered a really good mix of everything for both wholesalers and retailers. Thank you!” Myalee Sofield, BIBS
“Casa Tomara had an amazing show. Numerous new and existing customers came on stand and were blown away by the miniuno range of recession-proof products. All of our visitors were impressed by the high quality of the collection, and even more by the competitive price points of our products. Harrogate has exceeded our expectations this year and we will be returning with an even bigger and better stand next year.” Barry Brennan, managing director, Casa Tomara.
“The organisation of the set up and break down was fantastic, the Crusade team were extremely helpful, accommodating and organised. Our brand was fantastically received from all visitors who came to see us. We definitely have good quality leads to follow up on. We were delighted to win a BANTA award at our first show. We are definitely looking to return in 2023.” Gwen Peacock, Done by Deer
“We have been really pleased with the show! Great location, good service from the stand builders, super foot fall from both old and new customers, Independents and Nationals! We took orders and they’re coming in thick and fast! So, all in all pleased to be back!” Felicitas Endner, Hauck
“We thoroughly enjoyed being at the show and it was lovely to see so many existing customers as well as plenty of new faces. Despite the challenging conditions everyone faces there is still a good appetite for business and lots of positivity within the industry.” Jeremy Minchin, managing director, Hippychick
“Inglesina was really delighted with Harrogate 2022. The team came together from Italy and the UK to meet retailers over the three days. The stand was a hive of activity throughout and we were happy to say we welcomed quite a few new retailers from the show in Harrogate and have had orders for now and all the way in 2023 from our existing partner stores. Our multi award-winning products and very generous retailer margins proved appealing to buyers. We will be back for Harrogate 2023 to meet with more of the UK nursery retailers.” Jonathon Feingold, Inglesina
“From all of us at KiddieRail, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Harrogate International Nursery Fair 2022. We received contact from a wide array of interested distributors and resellers, leaving us with a lot of choice in terms of how we move forward with the product, and this no doubt has to be partially credited to the Fair’s assistance in terms of marketing. It was also extremely gratifying to be able to celebrate a victory in the 2022 BANTA Awards for the Safety category. We thank the organisers and hopefully look forward to visiting Harrogate again next year.” Adrian Stores, KiddieRail
“Having had a good show last year, this took it to another level! Our Trixie stand was full all day every day and my colleagues from Belgium were so impressed with the range of buyers and also how amazingly friendly everybody was. The atmosphere day and night was brilliant and I'm glad we picked this show as the first to properly launch into the UK.” Sam Tyack, sales director, Trixie
“At Harrogate International Nursery Fair 2022, meeting with clients and prospects face-to-face after so long was exciting and the level of attendees did not disappoint. This was an excellent opportunity to gather key members of the sales and marketing team sharing new ideas. Most importantly, launching our new LeapFrog range of Baby Monitors as well as new VTech products and getting live feedback on the spot was really inciting.” Gaelle Green-Garandel, VTech/LeapFrog
“Truly well organised. This show has been a fantastic opportunity to catch up with existing customers and to meet some relevant contacts for our business. It is always great to have an opportunity to meet and learn with industry peers and the organisers of the show. The organising team is always helpful they do a fantastic job in assisting exhibitors with their needs.” Camacho mazarro – Wombat & Co
