TUESDAY 17TH MARCH 2020
In light of the rapidly developing COVID-19 situation, it is with great disappointment, we must announce that the Autumn Baby Show will not take place as scheduled on April 4-5 2020 at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland.
We have been closely monitoring the advice and counsel of the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO), international organisers and professional events associations.
On Monday 16th March at 4pm, the Prime Minister updated the Government’s position specifically advising that mass gatherings of over 500 people should cancel, which applies to this event.
The health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and staff is - and will always be - our top priority. We are entirely supportive of the Government’s position – regardless of the importance of events to the wider economy.
We are following their advice and have rescheduled this event to March 2021.
We have confidence that the Government’s strict measures will prove effective to a point that restrictions are lifted in the later part of the year, and with that in mind remain fully committed to holding our founding event The Baby Show on 21 – 23 August 2020 at ASB Showgrounds.
The Autumn Edition Baby Show will return to ASB Showgrounds on 13-14 March, 2021.
Additionally, please know that all visitor ticket sales will be refunded in full within 30 days.
With the COVID-19 situation (and its impact on major events) rapidly evolving, we ask for your understanding and patience. Questions regarding the Autumn Baby Show may take some time to be answered, so please bear with us.
Thank you in advance for your continued support and understanding.
