“The Ottawa Parent & Child Expo has so much to do and I’m so glad it’s close to home, and I don’t have to pay for parking. I’m tired of going to events that overcharge my family and make me pay for parking.”

“Hi Peter,  just wanted to tell you how happy I am for being able to set up a table at your show. This was by far the best event for collecting leads that I have done in six years. I greatly appreciate you allowing me to position my table where it was. I would very much like to pre book for next year and would ask if I could have the same or a similar spot with the curtain as a back drop. Thank you so much…
All the best,”

    – Lisa B., Ottawa Exhibitor

“The Parent & Child Expo is an excellent opportunity to reach out to families living in the Ottawa area.  The Expo along with its staff, are professional, caring and not to mention helpful!  It is very economical for exhibitors as well as families to attend and has given us the opportunity to reach out to many families in our community.  Attending the Expo has brought much awareness to our program and services and allowed us the opportunity to network with other programs and services in the community.”

“A must for everyone who already has or is considering, Ottawa Parents & Child Expo helps parents connect with available children service providers in Ottawa. Best part is it’s affordable for families and exhibitors to attend, especially considering all the entertainment and things to do for families.”

    –   Grace A., Manager, GamesOnTruck, Ottawa, Ontario

“I have been a participant of the Ottawa Parent & Child Expo since the fall of 2015. It has been a great pleasure to return to each Expo since. Peter and his staff have provided merchants and other child related services a venue which is accessible and affordable to all involved. Great care is taken to offer great entertainment for guests as well as varied exhibitors to appeal to everyone’s tastes and needs. As an exhibitor, it is important for me to deal with someone who understands my particular company’s goals and needs, as well as getting value for my dollar. Peter and his team have taken the time to make sure my company has the best experience possible. They have shown flexibility and creativity in their dealings allowing for a customized experience rather than treating me like a generic client assigned to a slot. These personal touches are what make the Ottawa Parent & Child Expo so worthwhile.”
