Toymaster confirms details of 2022 May Show

Published on: 5th January 2022

The popular annual event will return to the Double Tree by Hilton Majestic Hotel in Harrogate from 17th-19th May. 

The Toymaster buying group has officially sent out the invite to its 2022 May Show, which makes its highly anticipated return this year after being forced to sit out 2021 due to Covid.

Running from Tuesday 17th May to Thursday 19th May (with a set-up day on the 16th), the 2022 Toymaster May Show – the biggest trade show for Independent Toy Retailers in the UK and Ireland-  will take place at its ‘second home’, the Double Tree by Hilton Majestic Hotel in Harrogate.

In addition to Toymaster Members, the group will once again be opening the show to all independent toy retailers, giving exhibiting suppliers even more opportunities to promote their ranges at this key time of year.

The invite, sent out by Yogi Parmar, reads: “We are all looking forward to the May Show, which is an important event in the toy trade calendar, where our Members can spend quality time with you, our Suppliers, to plan ahead for this year’s peak selling season. If you haven’t been able to attend the show previously and require more information, there is a whole raft of information on the Suppliers section of our website. I look forward to seeing you all in person at what I am sure will be another successful May Show.”

Retailers wanting to find out more about Toymaster, meanwhile, should look out for an exclusive interview with Toymaster development manager Brian McLaughlin, in which he outlines what membership offers independent retailers, from access to its branded and themed window programme to its standout central invoicing system.

Visitors to the London Toy Fair (25th-27th January) can also catch up with the Toymaster team in the Toymaster Members’ Lounge on Upper Level 128. “We are always happy to speak to independent brick & mortar toy retailers if they are interested in hearing more about how Toymaster could help their business,” says Brian. “Just pop in to see us in the Toymaster Lounge, upstairs on the Gallery at Toy Fair 2022.”
