The Baby & Family Expo Philippines 2013 is the biggest family expo for all maternity, baby, early childhood, and parenting needs.
It is set to take place on December 6 to 8, at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
What's in store for families on that day is showcased in a brief, which was distributed at the event's press launch held on October 24, at the Fun Ranch in Frontera Verde, Pasig City.
Celebrity mom Nina Ricci Alagao-Flores hosted the launch, which was graced by industry experts who gave their two cents worth on new parenting trends and laid down what to expect at the coming expo.
Edric Mendoza of The Master’s Academy, and host of ANC’s On the Money, talked briefly about the homeschooling movement that's slowly gaining ground in the country.
Mendoza advocates homeschooling as an alternate lifestyle for families, so that parents can become more involved with their children's education and development.
Meanwhile, Medela Moms co-founder Maricel Cua gave an informative speech about the benefits of breastfeeding, and how sharing breastmilk with less-privileged moms and babies can help reduce the rate of infant deaths and malnutrition.
Further on, Yoshiko Weiss shared her observations about modern parenting through her husband Michael Weiss, who is the coach of the Philippine Azkals football team.
These three speakers, as well as representatives from The Medical City, Cordlife Philippines, World Vision, Right Start, Grace to be Born, and Philippine Ambulatory Pediatric Association, gave a sneak peek into what parents and families can learn by simply attending the Baby & Family Expo Philippines 2013.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE EXPO. The three-day expo will have fun activities such as the Family Olympics and Family Fashion Weekend.
It will also be the venue for the Baby & Family Awards, which will feature the Golden Family Awards, ParentPreneur Awards, and the crowning of the Bibong Baby of the Year.
Said organizer David Abrenilla: “Our vision was to come up with a fun and meaningful event where families can bond and learn together.
"With our tagline 'Welcoming Life, Love and Care,' we want to give a message that having a new baby in the family is not just the mom’s responsibility, but the entire family’s. Here, no one is left out.
"We encourage Filipino families to come to the expo because we have invited a lot of industry experts.
"From there, they can get the latest information about maternity, babies, early childhood, parenting, and everything they need to know when planning and having a family.
"Together with our partners and sponsors, we want to nurture family development and raise the awareness on responsible child care."
The three-day event will cover the stages of family growth from pregnancy to early childhood, with educational seminars by Medela Moms and The Medical City.
Celebrity speakers who will be covering various family related topics include: Mercato founder RJ Ledesma, ANC host Edric Mendoza, MTRCB Chairman Atty. Eugenio Villareal, Azkals Coach Michael Weiss, DigitalFilipino.com founder Janette Toral, Beauty Queen Nina Ricci Alagao-Flores, actress-entrepreneur Regine Tolentino, and actress Jade Lopez.
