Following the huge success of previous years, which saw it hailed the largest pregnancy and family fair in Scotland, the event will continue supporting local businesses, whilst offering them to a much wider audience.
Hosted on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th March, over 100 exhibitors will be showcased in an easily accessible digital setting, targeting families, carers and parents-to-be across Scotland. Those attending the event will find all the best parts of the fair still available, including key speaker sessions on the ‘main stage’ and exhibitor stands that allow you to see the products, learn about the services and chat with the people behind them. With a schedule over two days that is packed full of informative talks, virtual taster sessions and product demos, covering topics across all areas of pregnancy and early years parenting, there really is something for the whole family to enjoy.
Deby Rainnie, event founder, comments: “We host Scotland's largest pregnancy and family fair, sharing everything wonderful about having a family in Scotland and covering everything from pregnancy through to starting school. Our focus is to provide businesses with an affordable, interactive method of connecting with expectant and new parents and established families in every part of Scotland.
While we appreciate that a virtual event cannot replace the social and interactive aspects of our fairs, or the opportunity of seeing products in real life, it will be invaluable for expectant and new parents to discover and connect with businesses that can support them through this new stage of their life.”
Attendees will be able to choose products and services that are local to them, offering a truly tailored experience. Each ‘stall’ will offer a wealth of knowledge and information accessible at the visitor’s fingertips, as well as the option to click through and speak with the stallholder, should they need more. With fair-exclusive discounts and limited-deals as well, this is one event not to be missed.
Setting it apart from other fairs, Bonnie Bairn focuses on keeping the event affordable, so the businesses can pass the discounts onto the customer.
Rainnie continues, “We work hard to make sure that Bonnie Bairn not only benefits the local community, but also offers a welcoming atmosphere to those attending. Taking it online this year means that although we cannot always visit them in person, we are still able to support the incredible local talent that Scotland has to offer. Because at the end of the day, pandemic or no, there will always be babies!”
Bonnie Bairns is all about bringing together the best local experts, activity providers and businesses supporting families from pregnancy to preschool. Its mission is to educate and inform parents and parents-to-be about all of the great local and online that are available to them.
The 2021 virtual show will include brands such as Positive Birth Scotland and Graceful Changes, as well as nationally beloved retailer, John Lewis. Attendees and parents certainly won’t leave empty-handed, being able to shop everything from high-street brands, to bespoke keepsakes.
