MGA pulls out of Toy Fair 2016

Published on: 12th June 2015

MGA has announced that, due to date clashes in the toy industry calendar, it will not be exhibiting at Toy Fair in 2016.

MGA-wordpressAndrew Laughton, MGA managing director, commented: “Due to the clashes in the industry calendar, MGA won’t be exhibiting at Toy Fair in 2016. Supporting two events at the same time presented us with a logistical nightmare and, rather than spread ourselves too thinly, we decided to focus our team and resources into one event. We will, of course, still be attending the other UK shows and events as well as reviewing 2017 Toy Fair.

“Our relationships in the UK are very important to us and, as such, we will be extending our showroom opening dates to fully support all of our UK customers, large and small. We are also holding dedicated open days for our independent customers. These Independents Days will take place on 8th December 2015, 12th January 2016 and 23rd February 2016. Details will be communicated in due course.”
