Childcare & Education Expo Returns: Bringing the Best to the Midlands

4th July 2024

Childcare & Education Expo dominated the early education event scene, early this year, with a record-breaking 3,395 attendees making their way through the doors of Olympia London. The popular trade show has been running since 2010, welcoming over 40,000 professionals over the years.

This September, the event returns to its second location of 2024, taking place at Coventry Building Society Arena on the 27th – 28th September 2024. Following the success in London, the organisers are excited to introduce more new features, content and opportunities for attendees, with visitor numbers expected to continue rising.

Unique Support for the Early Education Sector

Unlike other trade shows in the industry, Childcare & Education Expo is dedicated to supporting the early education sector to thrive. The shows are designed based on extensive research and feedback from visitors and advisory boards. Those attending will find countless opportunities to support the development of their educational settings, industry knowledge and connections.

What to Expect at the Childcare Midlands Event

For those who missed out on the London show or live closer to Coventry, the event offers the exciting opportunity to get involved in the action. Alongside the vibrant exhibition and shopping village, visitors will see the return of the much-loved CPD seminar programme accredited by The CPD Group and free interactive workshops.

Nursery Owners, directors and managers can find support to drive their businesses forward at the exclusive Early Years Breakfast Summit. Influencers within the activity, nursery and indoor play sectors can also connect at Morton Michel’s Lunch Summit.

Emma Barrett, the events Managing Director, said, “We are thrilled to bring even more interactive elements and opportunities for support this year, ensuring that everyone leaves with valuable insights and connections.”

With a focus on innovation, the event will include new features such as the Ofsted Advice Corner, Share & Support Hub and What’s My Why Wall, with more details to be announced soon.

Notable Speakers and Entertainment

BBC news star Kate Silverton, now a child therapist and Sunday Times Best Selling Author of parenting books, will be delivering her insightful seminar ‘Why There’s No Such Thing as Naughty’. Visitors will also enjoy new entertainment from the infamous Britain’s Got Talent ‘Hoop Guy’.
