 We could not be more pleased about our decision to sponsor The Baby Expo in 2016. We found the event to be extremely well organized; no detail was overlooked! We especially liked the BINGO incentive for every single attendee to not only stop by our booth, but also engage in conversation with us. We have done a lot of expos and seen little return on our investment, but the number of clients and leads we have seen from The Baby Expo has been far and above what we expected. We were amazed to see that leveraging our free tickets as a way to gauge interest and collect warm leads from expectant parents led to an increase in both sales and brand awareness. Anyone who has a product or service related to parents, babies, or birth should not miss the opportunity to be involved in The Baby Expo!
