The 63rd annual London Toy Fair is now open for visitor registrations. The 2016 Toy Fair will be held in London’s Olympia in January 2016 before Nuremberg.
People who want to visit the London Toy Fair 2016 have to go to the Fair’s official website and register. For regular fans and visitors the entrance to the fair is free as long as you have a registration. If you don’t register via the site, there will be a entry fee of 15 British pounds at the door. The event will be open from January 24th 2016 to January 26th 2016.
Most of the exhibitor space is sold out already. Lego, Vivid, Character, Flair, Golden Bear, Simba Smoby, Spin Master and Bandai, amongst many others, are all returning for another year. The organizers are happy since this year the London Toy Fair is very close to the Nuremberg Toy Fair which will be held from January 27th to February 1st 2016.
At first there was a date clash between the two fairs which wasn’t good, mainly for the London event. So the organizers had to rebook the event a few days earlier. This caused some problems, but overall the companies have managed to solve them and the Fair is on with full force.
“In a year of change, some exhibitors have found the logistics more difficult to organize than others, and that was to be expected with two shows so close together. Having said that, we have had an incredibly positive response from the vast majority of exhibitors and have been pleasantly surprised by the number of new companies wishing to join the show – the upside of the date difficulties is that we actually have space for them this year”, Majen Immink, Head of Toy Fair Operations and Sales, commented.
“We are very keen and looking forward to attending Toy Fair 2016. We find it a very productive show and choose lots of our stock for the following year from this event,” said Sangetta Gardinet, director at Gymboree.
The Greenhouse has been expanded to accommodate even more companies. The 63rd annual London Toy Fair is setting up to be an interesting one as always.
