JPMA and Family Media launch a series of baby trade and consumer shows.


This just in, fellow industry folks! The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) and Family Media, LLC., will officially be co-hosting and co-producing a series of baby events targeted at the juvenile products industry.

The Baby Show Series kicks off May 9-12, 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center with JPMA’s conference and trade event, dubbed the JPMA Baby Show, a JPMA and Family Media Event. Then, the Anaheim Baby Show consumer event will be held in conjunction with the JPMA Baby Show trade event on May 13. Additional regional consumer events produced under The Baby Show Series umbrella include three two-day consumer events: the New York Baby Show, the Chicago Baby Show, and the LA Baby Show.

“The JPMA Baby Show is where we will advance the industry’s strategic agenda, discuss relevant safety issues, educate the industry, connect with consumers and, yes, provide a showcase to launch and sell new products,” remarks Andy Newmark, JPMA chairman of the board, and senior vice president of Kolcraft.

The inaugural Anaheim event will host over 300,000 square-feet of exhibit space at the Anaheim Convention Center and is expected to draw more than 5,000 exhibitors, juvenile product buyers, distributors, manufacturers, consumers, and media from across the globe.

“Family Media is proud to be partnering with JPMA on building the go-to events platform for the pre-natal to pre-K space,” said John Hurley, director of the New York and LA Baby Shows and publisher of New York Family. “The industry will now have a single source for the best in both trade and consumer event experiences.”

Exhibit sales will open in late summer for the JPMA Baby Show and the Anaheim Baby Show. Sign up for email updates at and, to learn more, visit
