Feedback from visitors is that our show is a friendly, supportive and intimate space that is conducive to finding the information needed to make the best choice in starting the journey to a family. We work with our exhibitors to ensure that the aims are aligned and we can offer the best way to link visitors and suppliers. In 2016 we introduced 1-2-1 adviser slots which were praised by both exhibitors and visitors. In 2017 we also add pop up presentations to increase the information available.

P3.Proud. Professional.Parents | Alternative Family Week Partner
P3:PROUD.PROFESSIONAL.PARENTS. (P3) was created to help fill a gap in support available for ambitious professionals who happen to be LGBT and are either parents or looking to become parents. Many organisations offer support to their employees via established LGBT and Family networks. Unfortunately, the parenting agenda is often too niche for most LGBT networks and the LGBT angle too nuanced for the Family networks. P3 looks to fill this gap. P3 is also proud of its more general work at role-modelling LGBT and non-traditional families in society.
If you would like to exhibit at the show, please get in touch for more information.
