The event will take place on Tuesday 21st January 2014, the first night of Toy Fair 2014.

Following the event’s staging at Olympia’s Upper West Hall in January 2013 in celebration of the ToyFair’s 60th anniversary, the BTHA and TRA have taken on board guest feedback and selected the Science Museum as the spectacular new backdrop for the 2013 Awards evening. The prominent venue is easily accessible, being in close proximity to Olympia, and will provide an outstanding setting for the industry to network and celebrate the best in toy retail and product for 2013.

Guests will have the option of free (one-way) coach travel from Olympia to the Science Museum. The event will start at 6.45pm in the ‘Making the Modern World’ gallery with a drinks reception and a hot standing buffet where guests can mingle and enjoy the entertainment.

The awards ceremony, which will take place in the museum’s IMAX theatre, is planned to finish by 9.30pm and this will be followed by a free bar and desserts for guests to continue networking and celebrating. The ticket price has been held as per 2012 and will be charged at £75+VAT. Tickets will go on sale shortly.

The Toy Industry Awards event is the perfect opportunity to invite industry colleagues, partners and employees to a key industry gathering during Toy Fair, so please save the date now.
