    Question National Exhibition & Networking Event - Coventry

    Hi

    Are any of you going to the Childcare Expo, National Exhibition & Networking Event in Coventry on Tuesday 28th & Wednesday 29th September?

    Is it worth taking a day off work and going to?
    Has anyone been before?

    Hi All

    I started up Childcare Expo last year and this will be the first show in September. Unfortunately when I decided that I wanted to run a show in the Midlands, the only dates that the Ricoh Arena had left were the 28th – 29th September.

    I have got dates in the middle of September next year and the next few years and I am planning on holding it on a Friday & Saturday. Would they be better days for everyone?

    The show is free to enter. There are also free demos and seminars.

    I really want to make this show a success and would welcome anyone’s ideas and suggestions.

    Thanks
    Emma

    Hi Emma thank you for clarifying the situation for us hard working childminders.

    Yes I am sure there will be more interest if you can offer weekend dates.

    That's great news that youwould like to come on the Saturday.

    If any of you have anything that you would like to see at the show or have any ideas on how to make it better and a must attend event, please let me know.

    Also I was wondering what magazines you read? I advertised on the forum for a few weeks this year but will do it for longer next year and I also advertised in Who Minds? and Child Care. Did anyone see the adverts?

    Any feedback is much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Emma
