Open To All
Whether you are married and have been having fertility problems for years, or you are just starting out on your journey to parenthood, the Fertility Show is for you. Even if you are in an unconventional relationship, or are on your own, their experts will also advise single women and same-sex parents on how to fulfill your dream of having your own baby. This means that you don't need to feel you have to disguise your situation.
With a varied and packed programme the main problem will be deciding which of the 60 talks you want to go to, while still giving yourself time to look around the exhibition. You will be able to see devices like the DuoFertility Monitor, have a fertility astrology consultation, or get pre-conception advice to optimise your fertility. Last year's exhibition was very successful with over 3,000 visitors and this year the organisers expect a lot more.
The Exhibition will be held at the Olympia 2 Exhibition Hall on Hammersmith Road, London - Kensington Olympia tube station on the District Line. The Fertility Show will be open on Friday 4 November 2011: 10am - 6pm and Saturday 5 November 2011: 10am - 5pm
Due to the sensitive nature of fertility, the organizers have made sure that there will be no press, no photographers and unlike most other exhibitions, no name badges. You can also be reassured that when you apply for tickets to the Exhibition, which will be available online, the organisers will keep your details and email address completely confidential. The will also send out your tickets in a plain envelope, so that no one will know your situation.
