PHOTO AND VIDEO
Please be aware that photo and video of the event will be taken for marketing and social media purposes on the day.

When possible, we aim to ask permission for photos to be used in promoting the Wear A Hug Fair and Babywearing Ireland, but in live social media events, this is not always possible. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

VENDORS
In 2017, vendor stalls sold out quickly and there was a wait list for cancelled spaces. If you are interested in exhibiting your business at the 2018 Wear A Hug Fair, please register your interest as soon as possible by emailing fair@babywearingireland.ie.

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Various sponsorship, sampling, and naming opportunities are available for the 2018 Wear A Hug Fair for babywearing and other baby related companies that would like a presence at the biggest babywearing event in Ireland. Please contact secretary@babywearingireland.ie to discuss these opportunities.

Babywearing Ireland (BWI) is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation offering impartial information about and support for the practice of babywearing and the safe use of baby carriers and slings.

Are you passionate about babywearing and do you have a few hours a month available for some volunteering?

The Babywearing Ireland management team is made up of volunteers. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to help promote Babywearing Ireland. We are particularly keen to see new members in areas of Ireland that are not currently represented by our team, so please volunteer to organise a Sling Meet in your area!
