Mums Show Live
As a (once upon a time) retail professional, one of my perks was to attend trade fairs. Now I know they aren't everyone's cup of tea, on your feet all day, making small talk, but to me they were a fabulous opportunity to see all things new, bright and shiny. The trick was getting there before your competitors did and nabbed all the best stuff for an exclusive.
Then I went on maternity leave and the Baby Show was my substitute. I have three babies so my Baby Show days were extended but with a three year old as my youngest, I don't think I qualify any longer.
But I am saved!
There is a new show on the block, Mums Show Live.
Not for Mums of babies, but Mums of school age children. I cannot believe it has taken this long for something like this to come about.
It has brands exhibiting their wares of course, but it also has Conversation Theatres where you have an opportunity to listen to and chat to experts in all sorts of areas of parenthood including primary school education, negotiation and discipline, online security, wine (I've signed up for that one!), travel, sex education, careers and 'you time' and many more.
There is also an Inspiration Theatre to, well, you know, inspire you. It could be blogging, jam making, beauty or photography. The challenge will be how to fit it all in.
Mums Show Live runs over four days, 16th - 19th May at Alexandra Palace in London so that as many Mums can get there as possible. There is also room for Dads and kids too with the Tree House where kids entertainment is on every day.
The ticket price for Mums Show Live is £10 in advance or £15 on the door but .... *drum roll* ... I have a pair of tickets to give away.
All you need to do is visit the Mums Show Live website and tell me which session at either the Conversation Theatre or Inpsiration Theatre is your must see. Leave a comment on this blog to tell me which session you'd love to attend along with an email address, use the rafflecopter thingy widget below and you will be entered into a draw.

Right I'm off to try to work out how I can fit in all the brilliant seminars. A spreadsheet may be involved ;-)
