Juvenile products industry association announces dates and location for its 2018 trade and consumer shows

The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) has announced that the second annual JPMA Baby Show, a JPMA and Family Media event, will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, March 20-24, 2018 in Washington, D.C. The D.C. Baby Show, which is open to the public, will be held in conjunction with the JPMA event on Saturday, March 24, 2018.

“The industry has strongly supported JPMA’s vision for a combination conference and trade show and consumer day event footprint and we want to build on that momentum,” said JPMA Executive Director Kelly Mariotti, JD, CPA, CAE. “The decision to place our event in Washington D.C. was a strategic one. Not only does it bring the industry trade show to the East Coast, where there is a vibrant retail customer base, it also allows us to leverage the location to draw compelling speakers and attendees from the legislative and regulatory community.”

The inaugural JPMA Baby Show will be held next week, May 9-13, in Anaheim, CA. The Anaheim Baby Show consumer event will be held in conjunction with the JPMA Baby Show trade event on Saturday, May 13. Additional regional consumer events included in the 2017 Baby Show Series include three, two-day consumer events: the New York Baby Show (May 20-21, 2017), the Chicago Baby Show (August 26-27, 2017), and the LA Baby Show (November 4-5, 2017).

Exhibit space reservations for the 2018 JPMA Baby Show will be accepted starting next week at the JPMA Baby Show in Anaheim. For more information on becoming a sponsor or exhibitor in The Baby Show Series events, contact John Hurley at
