Gibsons virtual show

With many 2021 trade shows now cancelled or postponed as a result of ongoing coronavirus restrictions, Gibsons has announced it will be hosting its own virtual event in 2021.

The virtual show will take the form of an online conference and will give buyers the opportunity to partake in a private showcase of Gibsons’ new products releases, have one-to-one meetings with the Gibsons team and confirm listings for the year. The event will be held on Monday 1st to Friday 5th February 2021, dates that Gibsons claims do not clash with any toy trade events that may still be running.

“None of us could have foreseen the current situation and we are truly disappointed that we won’t be able to catch up with everyone face-to-face in the new year,” commented Kate Gibson, managing director. “We hope our week-long, drop-in event will complement other shows that may still run. We have lots of exciting things planned and can’t wait to share them with our customers and showcase our range of great new products for 2021.”

Gibsons will be releasing more information about the format of the show and the booking platform in the coming weeks. Any readers interested in signing up for more information about the event can email marketing@gibsonsgames.co.uk.
