Flexable to Provide Complimentary Childcare for Attendees at the 2018 Pittsburgh Business Show
Flexable, a Pittsburgh-based company that provides quality pop-up childcare for area employers, events and organizations, has partnered with the Pittsburgh Business Show to provide complimentary child care during two events at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Flexable will provide their services on Wednesday, April 25 from 5:30 – 10 p.m. during the Business Choice Awards and Celebrate Pittsburgh Business Networking event and on Thursday, April 26 from 11:30- a.m. – 2 p.m. during the Business for Business Speed Networking event.
Flexable was created by Priya Amin and Jessica Strong, two professional moms in Pittsburgh who know that trustworthy, last-minute childcare is a barrier that parents can’t always overcome. The company offers location-based, pop-up childcare at offices, networking events, conferences, trainings, and special events like weddings. The company can also provide care for scheduled “secondary” holidays and school in-service days, etc.
“The Show’s mission is to support the community, so we are excited to have Flexable at the Pittsburgh Business Show as a great resource for the professional parents and business owners in our area. Being a working parent is hard enough, and our goal to help connect business, people and resources will be better supported because of this child-care concept,” said Linda Jo Thornberg, President of the Pittsburgh Business Show. “Parents will be able to attend several of our large-scale events without worry and are welcome to use Flexable’s complimentary childcare during the Show,” she said.
Flexable will provide free childcare at two separate times at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Registration must be completed beforehand. Childcare is available for children 6 weeks old to 12 years old; no food will be provided to the children.

“We look forward to providing childcare at the Pittsburgh Business Show so that parents and business owners from the area can see what we have to offer. Most parents know how hard it can be to find quality, last-minute childcare on days when school is not in session. Companies hire Flexable because it provides a valuable employee benefit, and productivity remains high,” said Priya.
Flexable’s caregivers are fully vetted, have appropriate PA background checks and clearances, and the company is insured. Caregivers bring everything that is needed to events, including age-appropriate toys, games, and crafts.
The Pittsburgh Business Show is the area’s largest business-for-business trade show and networking event, welcoming thousands of attendees, hundreds of exhibitors, and 30-plus speakers that will help western Pennsylvania businesses grow and flourish. Those interested in attending the Show and participating in the networking events and presentations can receive two-day discounted tickets.
