The Independent Toy & Gift Show will open its doors from 14th to 15th September, and prior registration is essential.
In less than one week The Independent Toy & Gift Show will open its doors to a wide variety of retailers from across the UK. The AIS team behind the event says it is very excited to welcome the toy industry back to Cranmore Park after a nearly 18 month hiatus.
The show is open to all and promises “new products, ranges and surprises, from traditional toys to the latest gadgets and gizmos”. Buyers can meet with a diverse range of exhibitors from across the world of toys and children’s gift across the two show days, including Character Options, Playmobil, Ravensburger, Spin Master and Orchard Toys, who will all be in attendance.
Rosie Marshall, head of Toys & Children’s Gifts at AIS, commented: “This show is the ideal opportunity to once again meet face to face with suppliers, take advantage of show offers and place orders for the Christmas season. We are delighted to see the toy trade again.”
Visitors are reminded to register to attend before they arrive. Readers should visit Independent Toy & Gift Show website to register their details.
The organisers would like to assure exhibitors and visitors alike that the event will have thorough Covid safety measures in place. Cranmore Park has been awarded ‘Good to Go’ certification by Visit England, which means the venue has followed government and industry Covid guidelines to ensure the safety of visitors and exhibitors. The latest requirements are listed here, which everyone is advised to read before attending. Visitors should come prepared to show proof of their Covid-19 status.
The AIS team says that positive feedback from both retailers and exhibiting suppliers shows that the industry is eager to get back to physical buying and selling in a ‘business as usual’ fashion. “We hope Toy World readers can join us at the only UK Toy Show of 2021,” added Rosie.
