I've participated in the Bellies to Babies Celebration for the last two events and it's been a fantastic experience. It's very well organized both leading up to and on the day of the event and Lara is always there to help with any questions and provide advice. Both events I've been to have allowed me to expand my network and increase my team size. As well the relationships I've built with the other vendors have been priceless. It's been worth every penny spent and I can't wait to come back again!

With three expecting mothers and three moms, including myself, we knew the Bellies to Babies Celebration would be a fun afternoon out. Our general consensus was to find affordable babies gear and new family necessities. The B2B Celebration was a great opportunity to shop, learn about local family retailers and share baby stories with friends

Excellent organization and ongoing promotion. It's so exciting to be part of an event that celebrates babies, motherhood and families

Bellies to Babies Celebration is always one of my favorite tradeshows to participate in. The tradeshow is always very organized prior to and during the tradeshow. It's a great event to display your baby related business or service. Whether you own a new or establish business; its wonderful and a definite must-have!

Thank you so much for putting such an awesome event together! My friend and I had a blast and I learned so much about cloth diapering that I've finally committed to switching from being a 'sposables mommy. Through Muggabug I now have a new wet bag and wipes case and I have 8 new 'Oh Katy' cloth diapers from Jack & Lola. Can't wait until the next Celebration!

I heard a radio advertisement and word-of-mouth praise about the Bellies to Babies Celebration tradeshow. A couple of friends and I took the opportunity to attend Bellies to Babies Celebration tradeshow to find out more information about the new world of parenthood that awaits us. I was impressed with the vast array of information that was available at the tradeshow. We participated in the educational workshops and chatted with representatives from every booth. I really liked that there were so many local and different companies present and I purchased a few items to prep the baby nursery. I would highly recommend this tradeshow to new parents.

As a guest speaker for the fall October 3rd Bellies to Babies Celebration, I was impressed with the large number of attendee’s and excitement of each person in the room. The exibitors were very knowledgeable and showcased innovative and fun products for new moms and moms-to-be. I had an opportunity to showcase our newly released book, “The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms” and received favorable and relevant feedback from the audience. I look forward to attending the Bellies to Babies Celebration in the Spring.

Bellies to Babies Celebration is by far the best tradeshow for the best value. Participants were engaged, the venue was beautiful and the advertising was thorough. Well Done! We will be back.

I attended the Bellies to Babies Trade Show at the Croatian Cultural Centre and I could hardly believe the turn out, so many gorgeous pregnant ladies and beautiful babies. I was there with my 5 month old son. I really enjoyed checking out all of the booths and the quality of merchandise and variety of booths...baby gifts, pharmaceutical to exercise. Overall, it was an amazing show. Well done!

We launched our brand new Baby Bamboo Layette and we were looking for a trade show where we could present our products to the young parents in our local market (Vancouver). Many people and businesses recommended Bellies to Babies Celebration to us, so we’ve decided to jump into it. It was a very positive show for us. We were able to get direct feed-back from parents and their children who visited our booth.

Bellies to Babies Celebration is an excellent way to connect meet with hundreds of families looking for information. Having a presence at the show allows us to demonstrate cloth diapering to parents while they are in their research phase. We love having such an ideal setting to show them how easy it is. We have seen many instant connections made between parents at our booth. The show provides us the opportunity to build knowledge, awareness, credibility and the beginnings of our own community in the marketplace. It is amazing how many long-term connections we can create during the show - in a matter of hours!
- Karen Randall, New & Green Baby Co.
We participate in the Bellies to Babies Celebration tradeshow because it is one of the only shows that targets our preferred clients, Pregnant mommies! We also love being around other companies that specialize in all things pregnancy or babies. The show has been great exposure for our business over the last 2 years as there is always a phenomenal turnout. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

Bellies to Babies Celebration is highly recommended! You do not want to miss the October 3rd tradeshow. How can an entire tradeshow wrapped up with gorgeous babies and new moms be something you'd want to miss.
- Sandy Ripper, Tupperware
As a media sponsor for the Victoria’s Largest Baby Shower event, I was very impressed with the organization and planning by Westcoast Mom’s Network. The advertising and marketing leading up to the event was widespread and targeted. The show was informative and a lot of fun. I was quite pleased with the turnout and positive response by the attendees. I would not hesitate to join forces with these ladies again!
