Just five per cent of exhibition space remains for next January's London show

Toy Fair 2018 is set to replicate the success of the 2017 show, with 95 per cent of the overall exhibition space already sold.

Just five percent of the space remains nearly six months in advance of the show opening on 23 January 2018, with space in the popular Greenhouse Area already completely sold out. 

This year the Greenhouse Area, dedicated to helping small and start-up companies break into the industry, has been extended by 80sqm to accommodate the huge demand for the area and to support the ever-growing talent in the industry. The expansion equates to 16 more stands, which will help the show to nurture and support smaller companies looking to make their mark in the toy industry. The Greenhouse will welcome many first-time exhibitors to the show including Forever Collectibles, Rainbow Eco Products, Added Smile and Bildy.

The show will also welcome back 75 per cent of exhibitors across the toy, hobby and game sector, from last year’s Toy Fair, with returning companies including Flair, Playmobil, Spin Master, Character Options, Vivid, Orchard Toys and many more.

Jerry Healy, Group Marketing Director for Character Options, said: “The London Toy Fair is a major highlight in the calendar for Character Options. The event allows us to cost effectively showcase our entire portfolio to the widest cross section of UK retail possible under a single roof.

“There are in addition many other benefits that come with the show; Toy fair is the first opportunity to present key lines and stand out products to the media which generates many opportunities to explore throughout the year particularly at the time of launch. What’s more as the showcase event for our industry the London Toy fair also provides a great place to renew friendships across all sectors of the toy trade.”

Toy Fair 2018 will once again return to Kensington Olympia from 23-25 January 2018, occupying 22,000m2 gross space across the Grand, West, Upper West Hall and Gallery and will accommodate more than 250 exhibiting companies.
