There's plenty of conferences and shows aimed at parents and mums-to-be, but where are the big events aimed at children?

Mum entrepreneur and friend of Mama Dynamite, Caroline Dooley has set up an events business hoping to change all that.
Her first show claims to be Ireland’s first show dedicated to kids and is called the JUST 4 KIDS SHOW.

It’s coming to the RDS in Dublin at the end of May, Saturday, 25th May and Sunday, 26th May.

It will feature a huge free Fun Zone led by Let’s Go Camps, a Workshop Zone, a Technology and Science Zone, a Library Zone, a Seminar Zone and a host of exhibition stands to browse through.

The theme is to “be inspired, be informed and be involved” and it promises to be a fun and educational day out for all the family.

Experts booked to speak at the event include: Sheila O’Malley from Practical Parenting, Andrew Jackson the ISPCC’s anti-bullying campaign coordinator, Avril Ronan of Trend Micro on Internet safety, Angela C. O’Connor on Special Needs, Paul Hussey - Audiologist, Aidan Grace on Paediatric First Aid and more to come.    These will all take place in the Seminar Zone, interspersed by some great live entertainment and performances. Sessions will run from 10:30am – 8pm on Sat 25th and from 10:30am to 6pm on Sun 26th May.

The Seminar and Workshop Zone schedules will be posted on the show’s website in advance of the event and also at the venue, so visitors can plan their day. No advance booking is required.  You can just turn up. It costs €10 per adult and Kids GO FREE.

Confirmed exhibitors include: the Irish National Sailing School, Read Assist, The Young Performers Academy, Destination Westport, The GAA, Clever Mind Toys, Pembroke Fencing Club, Adams Cloud, Secret Valley Park, Eagles Flying, Kumon, Hearing Health Care, Funtasia, Fota Island Resort and Fota Wildlife Park.

Official charity partner of the Just 4 Kids Show is the ISPCC, who are also taking part in the event. The Show will donate a percentage of all ticket sales to the ISPCC, with a minimum donation of €5,000.
Caroline is a lovely, warm person who is doing this because she genuinely wants to create somethingn that kids will love. She's giving a massive charity donation from it.
