JPMA’s Annual Event Features All-New Format Focused on Innovation and Trends, Set for April 1-2, 2020, in Dallas
MOUNT LAUREL, NJ, Nov. 20, 2019 — The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) opened registration today for The JPMA Show: Best in Baby, April 1-2, 2020, in Dallas. Reimagined to be the show of the future, the 2020 event will be uniquely curated and trend-forward, focused on showcasing only the "Best in Baby." Retailers, industry experts, media and influencers will come together to share, learn and see the latest from the industry’s top brands and hottest start-ups, including new product launches, updated designs, new trends and fashions, and a peek at what's coming soon in the North American market.
JPMA is compressing the show to two packed-full days, limiting booth space and floor size, and eliminating the traditional consumer day - all in an effort to provide a curated showcase of the best the baby industry has to offer.
“With the rate of change we’re seeing in the baby and children’s products industry, we need an event that is focused on the future. That’s why we’ve made significant changes to The JPMA Show: Best in Baby, including a new name. This year’s attendees will find more excitement, innovation and trends, and exhibitors will enjoy expanded opportunities to showcase their expertise to consumers, retailers and media. We want everyone who attends to feel they’ve received exceptional value in a short amount of time,” said Kelly Mariotti, executive director of JPMA.
JPMA is also updating its esteemed awards program, the JPMA Innovation Awards, to include additional categories and to honor products that address parents’ needs in unique ways. The call for companies to enter the JPMA Innovation Awards will open in December 2019.
Dallas parents and caregivers will have the opportunity to connect with brands through a car seat check and safety education event on Thursday afternoon.
