Mama's Expo in Corona, Queens

Yesterday afternoon we had the pleasure of exhibiting in the Mama's Expo at the New York Hall of Science. The event attendance was over 3,200. For our first expo I felt we accomplished our goals, (i.e., brand awareness and networking with other vendors).

Our nautical themed tablescape was a hit! We were able to chat with parents interested in using our chairs for their little ones parties. We are ever expanding and from now until September our focus will remain networking and getting the Petite Seats brand recognized. Looks of exciting things happening this summer. Stay tuned.

This is will our first platform to share our Petite Seats will the NYC Metro area. We are excited to have parents see our chairs in person and chat about our visions for the company.

Here is a blurb about this one-of-a-kind show:

Part baby expo, part county fair, and part something entirely different, the Mamas Expo is a one day family friendly gathering that celebrates parenting culture in New York City and beyond. It brings together local resources, businesses, brands, educators, caretakers, parents, grandparents, performers, artists, and of course kids to  receive an exclusive look at all of the new resources available and of course, have fun!
