"We attended our first Baby Fair in 2016 and we can't wait to attend next year. We had a great weekend meeting all the moms and moms-to-be. Shirley and her staff were amazing from start to finish for us 'first timers'… I had many questions and she always took the time to answer them. Promotion and advertising for the show as well as how well organized the event ran was evident with all the new customers coming into our shop for months afterwards. We look forward to next year!"

"I just wanted to extend a heartfelt thanks for all the hard work you do each year to make the Vancouver Island Baby Fair an outstanding success. Ten years strong, the fair keeps getting better and better, with each year surpassing the last! I look forward to returning each season, knowing that I can rely on your cheerful demeanor, strong show management, extensive advertising, great attendance, lively entertainment atmosphere, happy exhibitors, and amazing sales. I particularly appreciate the organization of a smooth load-in/out system in a venue with lots of loading challenges. Your attention to detail on every aspect of show management is near perfection, and your dedication to the satisfying experience of your exhibitors is second to none."

"The Baby Fair was amazing - it was so well organized and had such a positive atmosphere. The events were great - from the baby races, to the presentations, to the photo contest, to the quality of the exhibitors. You really are offering something unique and needed in our community. I have never seen so many expecting parents and parents of babies and young children! I guess what impressed me the most is that it's not just about creating a great and fun and obviously successful business enterprise; it is so clear it is your knowledge and understanding and caring about young families that has made it so successful."

"Wow... Another successful weekend at the Vancouver Island Baby Fair. My store has been exhibiting there for many years and it's always been our biggest source of advertising next to Facebook. I always enjoy the onslaught of new parents that we see who would never have known we existed. Thank you very much Shirley Broback for another great one. See you next year!"

"As a first time exhibitor to your show, we weren't quite sure what to expect. As long-time exhibitors (in other shows) we are "old hats" to the exhibitor game. We would like to compliment you on a number of different areas: Your advertising for the Fair is outstanding ~ everywhere we turned leading up to the show we encountered many different forms of advertising and were impressed by how well known the show was among our clients and friends; The quality of the exhibitors in the show impressed us very much; The philosophy behind the show was greatly applauded; Finally, the organization of the show reflected a level of pride and professionalism that is truly outstanding. Thank you for allowing us to participate in your show!"
