We came, we saw… we conquered!
Birmingham you did NOT disappoint, just as expected we had a blast bringing the Mama Meet and Market on the road for the first time. It was such a daunting task to get the event seen and heard in a brand new area especially having already had 5 events in Derby where we are based BUT it was worth it and we hope that we can return to Birmingham making it one of our resident locations sooner rather than later, so watch this space!
The location for this event was the colourful, vibrant Digbeth! What an inspiring and creative area full of the coolest places to drink, eat, shop and have fun so we felt right at home here! The Custard Factory was such an incredible space to exhibit, big, bright and the perfect blank canvas for some insane displays (you are in for a treat if you haven’t seen them already) We opened to the general public at 11am after welcoming our VIP ticket holders at 10.30am, we only have 40 tickets per event but they include a fabulous goody bag and some little treats from us.
Each event is geared around families, from extra changing facilities and complimentary nappies (for those unexpected blow outs) to featuring some of the best Baby/Children's brands and live family friendly entertainment! We are more than a Market, despite the large amount of shopping we want to offer an experience. ‘Where the fun happens’ is our motto and that can be seen through the cool but thoughtful styling and all the little touches we put in place to make your time with us as enjoyable as possible! Happy children = Happy Parents!
So in this post you will find our event gallery, take a look at how the day went through the beautiful images taken by Helen King Photography. You can also find ALL of our exhibitors, each exhibitor has a click through which will take you straight to their Instagram page. If you weren’t able to attend this event then this is a great way to discover the brands, take a browse on their pages and also just get a general feel for what our events represent.
