Childcare Expo 2018: Our top tips for visitors

Childcare Expo
02 Feb, 2018

We understand that visiting an exhibition can be a busy day from travelling to the venue, making your way around the stands and trying to cram as much in as possible, not forgetting lunch and the all-important networking with peers. This is why we have created you 10 top tips to help you on your way. Whether you are a first-time visitor or a regular to the show, you may be able to pick something up from below:


  • Make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes. We don’t want any blisters!
  • Make sure your bag has lots of room for purchases and freebies!
  • Bring a drink with you.
  • Not all of our exhibitors will take card payments, so bring some cash.
  • There are ATMs in the entrance foyers of Olympia Central which charge £1.99 per withdrawal. A National Westminster Bank cashpoint machine is located on Olympia Way, opposite Kensington Olympia station.


  • If you have any seminars booked either side of lunch, you may want to bring your own lunch to avoid queuing at peak times.
  • Book your seminars in advance to save money.
  • If you print your badge at home, make sure you reprint it after you’ve booked onto a seminar so it is all up to date. You will have to go back to registration to have it reprinted if not.
  • Bring notepads and pens for the seminars.
