About Louise Benoit

25 years of bringing families together!

The past is the foundation of the future!

As we near the 25th Montréal Parents and Kids Fair and the 4th edition of the Québec City Parents and Kids Fair, allow me to tell you why, and more importantly how, our event has grown into Canada’s biggest consumer fair for families.

  • Brilliant idea
  • Innovative and progressive concept focused on people
  • Drive to succeed
  • Love of being able to help parents and their kids

Everyone knows that reputations are built and nurtured over time, day by day. We enjoy strong ties with our partners, exhibitors and sponsors, dependable ties that rest on values such as honesty, respect and trust.

In 25 years, we expanded from 70 to 325 exhibitors in Montréal! This stems from a commitment to working together year after year to create this phenomenal event bringing together talents and services for Québec families.

Grandmother for the second time, which makes me doubly pleased to see you at the 25th Parents and Kids Fair in Montréal and the 4th Parents and Kids Fair in Québec, the must-attend show of the year for new and expectant parents! Reference points help us move forward in life. Let our experience guide you, and as I say: “Parenting… love and learn!”.

Come one and all, and bring the kids!
