Renowned for being a ‘trade show with a difference,” the Independent Toy and Gift Show will once again return to its usual home at Cranmore Park in Solihull, for a today showcase of the latest products in the toys and games space.

“From bespoke offers, merchandising solutions to new ranges, the show exists for retailers that go the extra mile,” read a statement from AIS, the show’s organising body. “Finding us is simple too, the show is at Cranmore Park, near Birmingham with parking and lunch included with your free entrance ticket.”

The Independent Toy and Gift Show will run from Tuesday, April 21 to Wednesday, April 22.

Maintaining its position as an on-trend industry event, the 2020 show will have a focus on sustainability and reusable toys with its Wooden Toys theme. The trend has been decided by the gathering consumer consciousness around the topic of sustainability in the products they buy.
