Published on: 19th April 2018

Toy Fair 2019 secures an 81% re-booking rate of returning exhibitors in less than three months since the end of the 2018 show.

Following a successful 2018 event, returnees include Character Options, Spin Master, H. Grossman, Ravensburger, Golden Bear, Flair, Orchard Toys, Halilit, Fiesta Crafts and Rainbow Designs, among others.

Toy Fair will return to Olympia, London from 22nd-24th January 2019, welcoming a range of toys, games and hobbies manufacturers and distributors to the show from large renowned brands right through to start-ups. With 190 applications already submitted for exhibition space, including a high number of new exhibitor enquiries, Toy Fair 2019 looks set to be another busy show, providing a vibrant platform for the industry to promote their new products to buyers, retailers, licensors and the media as well as networking amongst peers, forging new relationships and building on existing partnerships.

Majen Immink, director of fairs and special events, commented: “We are very much looking forward to welcoming back such a large number of returning companies, both small and large, to the show. It’s encouraging to have received so many applications this early on, and we are extremely appreciative of the support the industry continues to provide the show. We have already received an exciting number of new enquiries and look forward to attracting new faces from the industry to the show as we seek to put on another busy three days, at the heart of the industry’s buying calendar.”

Companies looking to exhibit in 2019 are encouraged to fill in an application form online at www.toyfair.co.uk.
