Following on from the tremendous success of the recent London event, Childcare Expo has now set its sights on EventCity in Manchester this Summer. Set to take over the venue for two days from 14 - 15 June, the show promises a bumper line-up of special guests, prominent industry speakers and a range of leading suppliers - and registration for the event is now open!
Tailored for the early years and primary education sectors, Childcare Expo Manchester will welcome thousands of buyers from across the UK and beyond, all eager to experience the diverse range of feature areas and carefully curated shopping village.
This year's show will feature the popular #ChildcareExpoRocks area where visitors can get creative, an engaging Business Café hosted by Morton Michel, a large colouring wall and a Snap 'n' Share zone (filled with dress-up props), as well as two days packed with live talks and presentations from leading experts in their fields.
"We were absolutely thrilled with the overwhelming response we had at Childcare Expo London earlier this month," says event director, Emma Barrett. "The feedback we've had from visitors has been amazing. But the fun doesn't stop there - we have so many exciting plans to continue our 10 birthday celebrations at each of our events this year, and we can't wait to see everyone again in Manchester in June."
Childcare Expo gives practitioners the chance to discover innovative new resources from leading brands, attend educational seminars to top up their CPD, find new ideas for their settings with interactive workshops, benefit from exclusive show discounts and competitions, and have their questions answered by education experts. Seminar topics include child-led learning, Ofsted inspections, mental and emotional wellbeing, intergenerational play, and environmental sustainability, to name just a few.
