The event is moving to the East Coast where it will be accessible to a high concentration of both juvenile products retailers and manufacturer headquarters, while supporting growth among international buyers and distributors. Currently the trade show floor is over 85% sold and JPMA encourages companies that have not finalized their exhibit plans to act quickly.  View the current floor map now.

Buyers may now register, and all attendees may take advantage of discounted rates at a curated selection of hotel brands, offering a range of services and price points.  All education and exhibits will take place at the conveniently located Walter E.

Now in its second year, the JPMA Baby Show is the cornerstone of The Baby Show Series, a partnership between JPMA and Family Media, publishers of New York Family magazine and producers of the New York Baby Show.
