The third annual Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) Show: Built for Baby has confirmed more than 180 exhibitors for this year’s show. The JPMA Show will be held April 10-13 and will culminate with one of the largest consumer baby shows in North America on April 12 and 13. The event is being held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
The JPMA Show is the industry’s premier trade event, according to Kelly Mariotti, JPMA executive director. She reports that visitors will find a world-class experience, complete with two days of trade activity on the show floor, educational programming, networking opportunities, the latest in trends and innovation, and the Innovation Awards.
The Innovation Awards, an annual competition sponsored by JPMA since 1989, will honor this year’s top products for babies and children. The entry deadline for new products being entered this year is February 11.
Conference programming is scheduled on April 10, and the trade show floor is open from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. April 11 and from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. April 12. The floor is open to trade and consumer guests from 3 p.m.-7 p.m. on April 12.
As part of the consumer show, Cat & Nat, known for their #MOMTRUTHS and #MOMSTRUTH Facebook Life show, as well as a new podcast, bring women and moms around the world together with their humorous take on motherhood.
“The JPMA Show provides a big-tent forum to bring industry stakeholders together under one roof. The JPMA Show is where we will advance the industry’s strategic agenda, discuss relevant safety issues, educate the industry, connect with consumers and yes, provide a showcase to launch and sell new products,” says Mariotti.
The JPMA Show is hosted by The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), which represents 95 percent of prenatal to preschool products in the U.S., and acts as the voice of the industry on quality and safety for products intended for babies and children.
