In 2007 the firm decided to stop exhibiting at Toy Fair after it moved to ExCel. Kate Armitage, marketing director commented: "We felt that the environment at ExCel meant that the show had lost its way slightly; for us it became purely a meet and greet and not an order taking show so we decided to concentrate our efforts at Spring Fair.’
Gibsons had always been great advocates of the Toy Fair and in 2003 won an award from the organisers in recognition of 50 years support and participation at the show. In fact, Gibsons had been the only company to exhibit every year since Toy Fair began in 1954, following them from Brighton to Olympia and back to Brighton.
Now the show has moved back to Olympia and is growing again, Gibsons has decided it is time to give the Toy Fair another go.
Gibsons will be on stand H110 where the firm will be exhibiting new games, puzzles and Jubilee products.
