An insider’s look at the ABC Expo

An insiders look at the ABC Expo

In September, two of our editors spent four jam-packed days in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the ABC Expo looking for the latest and greatest products to feature on Daily Mom. This is their story in photos of what it looks like from the inside.

If you’re itching to know what goes on in the life of media attending the ABC Expo, we’re here with the insider’s scoop. What better way to show you what it looks like than through photos? We walked, admired, met, and conquered the crap out of the expo and Las Vegas, and are anxiously awaiting our return again next year. This is the story of our life at ABC.


When at the ABC Expo, you MUST take the obligatory photo with the gigantic rocking chair outside the conference.

  We took our kiddos to work with us. What better place to do so than a kid’s expo, afterall?

We tested out the products for ourselves like this breastfeeding blanket and pillow prototype from Kushies.


We loved the Nuna Adult chair so much, that it was hard to get back up and go! (for display only)

We raced through 2 floors of booths, going from appointment to appointment.

One of us wore comfortable Brian James shoes while still looking stylish…..

…..and one of us had to take our shoes off and walk barefoot because stylish doesn’t always equal comfortable.

We got caught in a flash flood and crazy desert windstorm.
