The Leisure Toy & Gift Fair 2021: everything you need to know

The Leisure Toy & Gift Fair is finally opening its doors again in person, at the NEC Birmingham on the 10 and 11 November this year.

With over 500 exhibitors, a wide range of educational seminars, and a packed schedule of keynote speakers and panel discussions, the show will tackle everything from boosting your offering to marketing and new business strategies. Insights will be delivered by some of the biggest names and associations within the industry, including the likes of 360 Imagery, Dinosaur Invasions and Disc Golf UK Ltd.

Speakers will be discussing the latest trends within the industry, sharing their experiences and tips and tricks, and answering burning questions now that we can finally meet face-to-face, creating unparalleled networking opportunities.

The latest technology from the sector will also be on show, while visitors will receive exclusive offers on products from leading suppliers such as Airparx, Action Dinomask and attraction io solutions, which are paving the way for the future of the industry.

Getting ready for growth

After the tough year and a half that the industry has faced, the Business Growth Hub has been designed to provide specific products and services to help prepare for the resurgence of the industry after COVID-19.

Many toys and gift businesses have utilised this time to upgrade and perfect their customer offering, hence the Leisure Toy & Gift Fair will be providing masterclasses, videos, news articles, podcasts and much more to support companies along this journey.

The Fair is introducing Green Route this year, recognising the sector’s most sustainable suppliers who will be showcasing their products and services, providing you with everything you need to go green ready for 2022.
