Distoy returns “bigger and better than ever”

Published on: 28th March 2014

This year’s Distoy event will take place from 3rd-6th June, and is a ‘by appointment only’ event specifically catering for toy distributors in the international markets.


Due to the nature of the event, retailers aren’t encouraged to attend. Organiser David Potter commented: “ I’m delighted to say that we’re expanding the show again this year. We’ve taken an additional floor at the main venue, the St James’ Court Hotel. We will also have companies exhibiting in the St Ermin’s hotel again this year. Given the fact that we have a larger number of exhibitors than ever before, it might be worth visitors considering booking an extra night’s stay to make sure they don’t miss anything.”

A list of exhibitors with contact details can be found on the Distoy website ( There are no fixed opening and closing times, although the showrooms are generally open for business between 9:00 and 18:00.
