Independent Toy & Gift Show to be rebranded for 2022

Published on: 15th September 2021

The show will be known as the INDX Toys & Nursery show when it returns to Cranmore Park in April.

The Independent Toy & Gift Show will be rebranded as the INDX Toys & Nursery show when it returns to Cranmore Park next year after joining the umbrella group of INDX trade shows.

The rescheduled 2021 Independent Toy & Gift Show has been taking place this week (14th-15th September) after organisers Play-room cancelled its original April date due to Covid restrictions earlier in the year.

The 2022 show will come under the INDX Home Banner for the show which takes place at the Solihull venue from 19th-20th April. INDX (short for Independent Exhibitions) represents a group of established and successful trade shows covering fashion and home categories which are curated by AIS and specifically focused on Independent Retailers. The welcome addition of Toys & Nursery will expand and strengthen the existing INDX Home portfolio which already includes Furniture, Housewares, Linens, Beds & Bedroom and Gift Food.

“The Independent Toy & Gift ethos has a lot of similarities with the key values that the INDX Brand stands for, such as providing a business and buyer focussed approach to shows and a commitment to meeting the diverse requirements of today’s retailers. We are delighted to be joining the INDX family and we look forward to welcoming everyone to the launch show in April 2022,” commented Rosie Marshall, head of toys & children’s gifts at AIS.

All INDX trade shows offer free admission and free on-site parking and are located at Cranmore Park in Solihull, close to the M42.

The first INDX Toys & Nursery show is scheduled for 19-20 April 2022 and will be open to all retailers. Buyers are advised to keep an eye on the INDX website for information about registering for the show. For more information visit
