Shanghai International Children Baby Maternity Industry Expo (CBME China) Forms Alliance with ABC Kids Expo and BPA/Harrogate Nursery Fair

January 31, 2013

SHANGHAI, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The Shanghai International Children Baby Maternity Industry Expo (CBME China), has formed an alliance of mutual cooperation with the ABC Kids Expo (USA) and<s> </s>Harrogate Nursery Fair (UK)/Baby Products Association (BPA) for reciprocal pavilions at each other’s shows.

Held annually in Shanghai, CBME is now the largest sourcing event for baby, children and maternity products; ABC Kids Expo is the largest North American baby, maternity and juvenile products exhibition and Harrogate Nursery Fair is the UK’s only nursery trade event.

Athena Gong, General Manager of CBME said, “As we launched the ‘Unlocking the Doors to China’ seminar series in Germany and the US this year, we saw that many children and baby products suppliers were looking for new market opportunities beyond their current market. This cooperation with ABC Kids Expo and Harrogate Nursery Fair will not only help suppliers expand their businesses overseas, but it will help boost the children, baby and maternity products industry as a whole.”

Larry Schur, President of the ABC Kids Expo said, “Based on feedback and attendance at the international session held during the ABC show in October, many of our exhibitors have expressed an interest in establishing relationships overseas. We look forward to facilitating their experience and generating export opportunities for them by having a USA/ABC Pavilion in China and the UK.”

Luke Burns, Chairman of the Baby Products Association, said that BPA members had expressed great interest in both the USA and China Markets, “This alliance helps us to help our members be more successful.” Added Robert Anslow, Managing Director of Harrogate Nursery Fair, “We look forward to the opportunity to warmly welcome ABC and CBME exhibitors and help them to market their products in our country.”

Due to the challenges of exhibiting internationally, all show management agreed that providing a turnkey exhibit for new-to-market companies was essential. Margaret Ma-Connolly, Managing Director of UBM China concurred, “As rules and regulations vary from country to country, inducting country pavilions enables small and medium sized companies to have a far larger presence than exhibiting alone. We are excited to work with ABC Kids Expo and Harrogate Nursery Show to facilitate introducing more products and exhibitors to Asia and in particular China.”

In addition to pavilions in each other’s shows, each exhibition will hold export opportunity seminars at each respective exposition and receive additional publicity through co-marketing promotions.
