The exhibition will take place on April 21st and April 22nd 2009 and all plaY-room Cenpac suppliers will be invited to exhibit with prospective members invited to attend.
Six months after its launch, AIS’s toy division, Play-room, has 35 members with more than 100 retail outlets and expects to add to this number significantly during 2009.
Terms have been agreed with more than 90 suppliers and half a million store-specific Christmas broadsheets have been designed, produced and will be distributed during November 2008.
Play-room has offered both autumn/winter 2008 and spring/summer 2009 FOB import programmes which have given members access to more than 700 branded toys at high margins.
The division's marketing plans for 2009 are already in place with a window kit system planned for distribution to members in early spring.
A member website for information sharing and selected electronic ordering is also nearing completion.
AIS offers key services specifically designed to meet its members needs such as central payment facilities (CENPAC), marketing, training, logistics, procurement and information technology.
