"We are really pleased to once again be co-hosting The Alternative Toy Fair Party with Progressive Preschool and Aardvark Swift," said Samantha Loveday, editor of ToyNews. "Over the past few of years the event has acted as a successful platform for those visiting and exhibiting to unwind, chat with colleagues and peers and meet new contacts in a relaxed environment. No entry requirements, all are welcome."

“The Toy Fair drinks event has been enjoyed by the trade for a few years now, and it’s a pleasure for us to be able to supply our clients and friends with a well deserved drink after a hard day on the show floor." said Rob Willis, publisher of Progressive Preschool Magazine. "We are pleased to be able to work with ToyNews and Aardvark Swift to offer a really comfortable environment for people to meet, unwind and have a chat with their industry counterparts."

Ian Goodall, MD of Aardvark Swift, added: “Aardvark Swift is delighted to be co-hosting this event again. The response last year from the industry was fantastic. After a hard day at the show, it was great to get a group of industry professionals together in a relaxed environment for a few drinks and a chat. This year's event will be bigger and better, but will still retain the laid back feel that we all want. Come and join us for a drink... or two.”
