As well as the renowned big players, visitors will also be able to meet with smaller and start-up companies, some first-time exhibitors, displaying exciting talent and innovation. These companies can be found peppered around the show floor, but many are based in the famous Greenhouse Area located in the Grand Hall.
Jessica D’Arcy, junior Brand manager of exhibitor Tonies, said: “Toy Fair allows Tonies to meet both our existing retail partners and develop new relationships, whilst also allowing us to check out all the brilliant work from other brands. As Tonies has grown, our stand for 2024 needed to grow too. We’re really looking forward to January to show everyone what we’re working on and what’s coming next year.”
As well as showcasing a huge range of products of the present and future, there will also be subtle nods of nostalgia dispersed throughout Toy Fair to pay tribute to the show’s 70th anniversary and its extensive list of exhibitors who have launched iconic toys over the years.
Majen Immink, director of Toy Fair, commented: “With a sold-out floorplan, an increased footprint and celebrating the show’s 70th anniversary, Toy Fair 2024 is shaping up to be a very exciting and busy show. To have reached our 70th Toy Fair is an amazing achievement, one which wouldn’t have been possible without the continued support from both our visitors and exhibitors, which we are incredibly grateful for.”
Brian Simpson, Commercial director of Toytown, added: “The three days we visit London Toy Fair each year are among the most important days of our calendar year. The amount of information, products & networking that we are able to do in such a short period of time is unparalleled, and it is a brilliant, action-packed bundle of craic and business which ensures we are up to speed with the very best of what is going to be on our shelves for the coming year.”
