Event Success for Education and Shanghai Families in Pudong

Shanghai Family's 5th International School Expo Pudong exceeds expectations for 2017

by SHFamily | Tue, March 21, 2017

The chilly weather didn't stop the flood of people eager to check out this years' Shanghai Family International School Expo. Saturday, March 18th, 2017, saw bigger than expected crowds at the School Expo hosted at Kerry Parkside Pudong. As the premier resource magazine for international families in Shanghai, once again, the event cemented the success and stronghold Shanghai Family and Parents & Kids has with the local community in Shanghai. The outdoor event was perceived as a resounding success by all who attended, with lots of fun for families and invaluable resources for parents on education opportunties in Shanghai.

This year, the event page accumulated over 2800 views, with over 800 families confirming their attendance through the online RSVP and around 2000 people recorded in attendance during peak times with more throughout the entire day. Families welcomed the opportunity to meet an extensive selection of Shanghai’s prestigious and diverse international schools, preschools, kindergartens, healthcare institutions and more. They each had representatives on hand to offer friendly advice about their available services and products. Families also met face-to-face with the exhibitors and gained a host of valuable information to help them with future education decisions.

Kids enjoyed an array of games and activities during the day, including gymnastics, skateboarding, blackboard graffiti, planting, and more. Throughout the event, there were also plenty of performances on stage, including choirs, dramatic performances, hip-hop dances and a popular clown show to end the day. 

A special thanks to our venue sponsor, Kerry Parkside Pudong, as well as our activity sponsors Mad Science and JJMax for their support in putting on the event and entertaining guests.

Shanghai Family is also grateful to the companies who provided gifts for the event’s prize draw; Kerry Parkside, YuMassage, PizzaMarzano and Elmer.

Finally, thank you to the exhibitors and families who contributed to making the 2017 Shanghai Family School Expo such a success. The Shanghai Family team was thrilled to see everyone enjoying the day, and we hope you'll join us again on April 15th for our Puxi School Expo.
