Baby Show App: It’s Like a Baby Show in Your Pocket

Baby Show App: It’s Like a Baby Show in Your Pocket

The Baby Show is all grown up with its very own smartphone app for iPhone and Android that puts the power of pre-planning your visit right in your pocket.

The app makes it easy to browse the nearly 200 exhibitors at the show, plus seminars, speakers, and free entertainment options, and add them to your personal show schedule and favourites.

Each exhibitor listing is packed with info, including special offers, links to websites, and contact information. You can rate each seminar you attend and add your notes on the fly, plus keep up-to-date with #babyshow tweets (including promotions and competitions), even if you don't have a Twitter account.

A floor plan ‘map’ of the entire show is included in the app and information about all the exhibitors will be uploaded to it once stand allocations are finalised just prior to the show. Then the map will become truly ‘interactive’ and go hand-in-hand with adding exhibitors to the in-app ‘favourites’ lists to help you plan and navigate.

But that’s not all – there’s even an in-app QR code reader included so you can collect information from exhibitors as you explore and sign up for notifications.

The Baby Show app is available from App Store or go to for iPhone, for Android, or download from for other phones, tablets, and laptops with internet access.

Once opened, simply enter your email address and the pre-set password: babyshow. “This app is very cool and truly useful. It will help our visitors get so much more out of the show,” says Dona White, CEO of North Port Events, which organises the Baby Show.

“Basically it takes just about all the info we’ve had available online via our awesome website and squishes it into their favourite mobile device so they can carry it with them before, during, and after the show and access it anywhere on their own terms.

“It’s all about making the whole experience easier and more efficient – and if you’re dealing with prams, tantrums, and tiny accidents, you need as much easy and efficient as you can get.”

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
