Next year?s Toy Fair may see a change of dates to accommodate another weekday at the show rather than a whole weekend.

The proposal will be discussed at the BTHA AGM at the end of the month. The idea is that the show will run from Wednesday January 25th to Saturday 28th rather than the present Thursday January 29th to Sunday 30th, allowing buyers to spend a working day at the show rather than a weekend.

The BTHA council is currently canvassing members? and exhibitors? opinions on the subject before talking to ExCeL about any change in dates.
