Amenities

We know how difficult it is to take infants, children and dads (just kidding) anywhere. So what we've done is design our show to make our mothers and dads experience more enjoyable.


A few of these neat things are listed below:


Extra-wide Stroller Friendly Aisles
- Because it's tough going anywhere with a stroller, Family Expositions made sure that the New Baby Expo would feature extra-wide stroller friendly aisles for our attendees. At the Expo you can enjoy strolling down the aisles talking with exhibitors and having a wonderful day at the show.


Mother Baby Rest Area
- Moms, when you need to take a break from the shows many events and activities, head over to the Mother & Baby Rest Area. Th e rest area is a private, quite (as quite as you can get at an expo,that is) area where mom and infant can rest and get a few moments together in solitude. Mothers may use this area to relax and/or nurse their infants. A Great place to get recharged before taking in more of the shows activities or for more shopping later.


Baby Changing Area
- Oops! Did baby have a little accident or leave you alittle present in his or her diaper? Well, don't worry about it, just head on over to the Baby Changing Area complete with changing tables. The Baby Changing Area is located immediately adjacent to the Mot her & Baby Rest Area. Moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas now have a great convenient place to change baby out of all the hustle and bustle.


Infant and Toddler Play Area
- Dads & Grandpas, if you're looking for a place to just hang out with baby so that mom & grandma can check out all the great exhibitors and demonstrations, than this is the place. Just sit down and let baby enjoy all the wonderful age appropriate toys in this area. Of course all are invited to enjoy this interactive play area.


Children's Activity Area
- For toddlers aged two and above, the Childrens Activity Area offers a wonderful diversion for mom, dad and expecially the kids. Featuring many interactive games, activities and inflatables for the truly energetic. Great place for the kids to use up some of that endless energy they seem to have.
