The Independent Toy & Gift Show returns for 2020 with dates and sponsors revealed

The Independent Toy & Gift Show is making its return for 2020, once again with its emphasis on keeping the independent retailer at the heart of what it does, and the promise of a slap-up lunch thrown in as standard.

From bespoke offers, to unique merchandising solutions and access to some of the most prominent toy and children’s gift suppliers, the show will return to Cranmore Park, located just off Junction 4 of the M42, and close to the NEC, on Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 of April next year.

The show is known for attracting a wide range of professional buyers, including those from department stores, toy and gift shops, garden centres and leisure attractions.

The theme for the 2020 show will be Wooden Toys, celebrating the classic play patterns and attributes of toys made of natural materials. Ravensburger is sponsoring the café and will be showcasing its popular Brio range.

Hosted by plaY-room, the toy division of buying group Associated Independent Stores, the show is open to all independent toy and children’s gift buyers and is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere, along with its relaxed buying environment.

Exhibitor bookings will open to plaY-room preferred suppliers in October.
