ABC returns to Las Vegas October 18-21, 2016
Whether you’re looking for soft or hard goods for the juvenile industry, you’ll find them at this year’s ABC Kids Expo, scheduled October 18-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The 14th annual event is expected to attract more than 12,000 attendees and will feature numerous first time exhibitors.
Major exhibitor categories range from maternity and baby gear to apparel and gifts, as well as furnishings, toys, and more. Special juried sections are dedicated to Modern Child®, and Naturally Kids®. Maternity Square® features manufacturers of maternity clothing and lingerie as well as fashion and accessory items such as diaper bags, nursing slings, and nursing covers.
The ABC Kids Expo attracts the industry elite, with virtually every significant manufacturer or distributor of products for infants and children presenting their newest, most innovative products and services in over 1 million square feet of exhibit space. First held in 2001 with 100 booths, the event features a New Product Showcase. In 2013, ABC debuted its Invention Connection featuring inventors’ newly designed and prototype products.
The New Product Showcase allows manufacturers to introduce new products to the industry. A special reception allows independent specialty retailers and members of the media to get the first look at these new products. Additionally, a Made in the USA Showcase provides a separate venue for manufacturers to display their products. The Invention Connection returns after its successful launch in 2013 and provides inventors to show their prototypes in a conceptual or prototype state in an enclosed pavilion.
The All Baby & Child was officially formed in 2003 and in 2012 it was instrumental in the creation of Brixy, a retail specialty organization to serve the needs of specialty retailers. All Baby & Child Corporation (ABC), parent company of ABC Kids Expo®, is a non-profit with a partnership between independent specialty stores and manufacturers. It promotes the growth and prosperity of independent retailers and manufacturers in the juvenile products industry. A spring conference and smaller show are also offered.
