The annual ABC Expo (All Babies & Child) in Las Vegas, Nevada is the largest trade show for juvenile industry manufacturers and retailers. With over 12,000 attendees from 65 countries, it’s a place for people to connect from all over the world for the purpose of promoting the children’s products industry. The expo boasts over 3200 booths and covers nearly 1 million square feet. Needless to say, it’s a big deal! It’s also a stage for the debut of some incredible technology, fashion, and innovative products. Some favorites from this year were the NuRoo Pocket, the BittaKidda sleep sack (which we’ve given away as a prize in the past), and the Baby Bump.
This year SmartMom attended for the first time and had the chance to connect with amazing brands from all over the country. We love discovering new, innovative products to share with the SmartMoms in our community, like the Embé 2-in-1 Swaddle, which we are featuring for our November contest.
I’ve never been to Las Vegas before and it was so fun to see the glitz and glamour of the city. One of the nights I was able to attend an event hosted by Baby Steals – our partner from the September 2015 contest. It’s always great meeting people in person that you’ve only communicated with online. They were amazing hosts and rented a private suite in the Bellagio for a private party. The suite had windows facing the famous fountains – where there is an incredible fountain show with lights every 15 minutes.
