Mark AllenPress Release

Following on from two phenomenally successful years in London, and due to increasing demand from early years and childcare professionals from across the UK, the Nursery World Show exhibition series is expanding in 2017 with the launch of a new event: Nursery World North.

Ed Tranter, Managing Director of MA Exhibitions confirmed the market need: “With an average of 78% of the near -3,000 visitors to the Nursery World Show in London in the last two years being from London and the South-East, it was clear that there is a need to service the thousands of dedicated professionals in other regions. This is our first step towards filling that need.”

Liz Roberts, Editor of Nursery World said, “We are delighted that the hugely successful Nursery World Show with its mix of seminars, masterclasses, resources, services and networking will be heading north in May 2017 to reach even more of the early years community.”

In 2017, alongside a high quality conference programme and exhibition of market leading suppliers, Nursery World North will include a range of exciting interactive feature areas. These will comprise the free Live Theatre, the Nursery Nutrition Zone, and the Early Years Media Zone as well as a special resources zone sponsored by TTS Group.

Tranter added “The response from the market has been phenomenal, with Early Years Direct, Pre-school Learning Alliance, Community Playthings, YPO, Voice, TTS Group and many more already confirmed as exhibitors for this new event and we are delighted that the show is over 30% sold at launch.”

Nursery World North opens its doors at Exhibition Centre Liverpool on Friday, 5th May and Saturday, 6th May 2017 and will focus on the needs of practitioners at all levels in the early years and childcare sector.
