The most recent Independent Toy & Gift Show took place at Cranmore Park Exhibition Centre in Solihull on 12-13th April 2016.
Formally known as Play-room at the Park, the Independent Toy & Gift Show is organised by Associated Independent Stores, the buying group that was formed when Youngsters went into receivership in 2008.
In July 2012 it was announced that the show would be rebranding to call themselves Independent Toy and Gift, a move which was helped by the opening of a new suite at the show's venue which has enabled them to expand significantly.
The 2016 show was considered the best ever, playing host to over 100 suppliers and took over not just the Platinum Suite but the Diamond Suite too.
The show provides retailers with an opportunity to meet with some major toy suppliers. Admission, parking and refreshments are all free for independent toy shops - and the central location in Solihull is designed to make it easy for retailers to attend. The purpose-built venue at Cranmore Park provides a calm and professional atmosphere with excellent layout and a contemporary conference and exhibition space.
