Toymaster cancels September show

Published on: 8th July 2020

Dates for the 2021 Toymaster show have been confirmed. 

Toymaster logoSuppliers and Toymaster members have received an email, officially announcing the cancellation of the Toymaster show, which was due to take place from 2nd-4th September.

The event had already been postponed from its usual May timing, with government restrictions on gatherings now putting paid to the buying group’s plans to hold a later show. Despite support for the event, Toymaster has taken the decision to cancel the 2020 show, and focus on the 2021 May event instead, currently slated for 18th-20th May.

In an email to suppliers, MD Ian Edmunds said: “Due to the continuing need for social distancing, government restrictions on the number of people allowed to meet up, and ever conscious of the safety of attendees, the decision has been taken to cancel this September’s event.”

Suppliers are being given the option of a full refund, or booking for the 2021 show and carrying the money forward.
