Network and celebrate with free drinks

The Baby Products Association, in partnership with Harrogate International Nursery Fair, has changed the format of the Baby and Nursery Trade Awards (BANTAs) for 2017.

As the trade show is now mid-week (Tuesday to Thursday) the Party and Awards night, which usually takes place at the Majestic Hotel on the Sunday evening, will now be replaced by a free drinks reception and awards presentation on the first day of the show. This will take place in the stunning Royal Hall of the Harrogate International Centre as soon as the show closes on Tuesday 28th March.

Once again, the reception and BANTAs are sponsored by the industry’s trade magazines – Nursery Today and Progressive Pre-school magazine and both visitors and exhibitors are warmly invited to come along and enjoy free drinks and canapes – and celebrate with industry colleagues who are lucky enough to win an award.

The trade association will also be presenting its Concept & Innovation Awards during this event, which is kindly sponsored by law firm 3Volution.


All exhibitors at Harrogate International Nursery Fair are eligible to enter the BANTAs – and winning is great kudos for any brand as judging takes place with industry experts and colleagues.

This year there are eight categories to enter: Travel (car seats, wheeled goods and travel systems); Travel Accessories (travel cots, carriers and slings, parasols, canopies, rain covers, car seat and pushchair accessories); Toys (pre-school toys, bath toys, pram toys, swimming aids); Sleep Accessories (sleep sacs, cot bumpers, bedding mattresses, mobiles and nightlights); In Home (high chairs, cots, changing units, nursery furniture); Safety (thermometers, monitors, stair gates, bed rails); Feeding, Cleaning, Changing (nappies, changing mats, changing bags, toiletries); Best New Product (any new product which has been launched to market after Harrogate Nursery Fair 2016).

Entry forms can be downloaded here – or from the website at www.thebpa.eu and must be returned to Julie James at the trade association no later than Tuesday 7th March 2017.



For further information about these awards, please contact Julie James on 0845 456 9570 or Julie@b-p-a.org.
