Following a successful show at Cranmore Park in Solihull this September, The Independent Toy & Gift Show has announced that it is joining the umbrella group of INDX trade shows. When it returns in 2022, it will do so under the INDX Home Banner, rebranded as the INDX Toys & Nursery show.
INDX (short for Independent Exhibitions) represents a group of established trade shows covering fashion and home categories, which are curated by leading buying group AIS (Associated Independent Stores). The addition of Toys & Nursery will expand and strengthen the existing INDX Home portfolio which already includes Furniture, Housewares, Linens, Beds & Bedroom and Gift Food.
“The Independent Toy & Gift ethos has a lot of similarities with the key values that the INDX Brand stands for, such as providing a business and buyer focussed approach to shows and a commitment to meeting the diverse requirements of today’s retailers,” says Rosie Marshall, Head of Toys & Children’s Gifts, AIS. “We look forward to welcoming everyone to the launch show in April 2022.”
The first INDX Toys & Nursery show will take place at Cranmore Park on 6–7 April 2022. Buyer registration is now open and can be accessed here.
