Independent Toy & Gift Show

The next Independent Toy & Gift Show will return on 21-22 April 2020. 

Maintaining its position as an on-trend industry event, the 2020 show will have a focus on sustainability and reusable toys with its Wooden Toys theme.

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.

The show rebranded in 2012 which was helped by the opening of a new suite at the show's venue which has enabled them to expand significantly.

The 2019 show was considered one of the best ever, playing host to 85 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.
