Exhibit at Toy Fair

No other event brings together so many toy manufacturers and retailers from small innovative companies to the big chain outlets all under one roof to do one thing: successful business.

Why Exhibit?

The Toy Fair is THE industry showcase

No other event brings together so many toy manufacturers and retailers – from small innovative companies to the big chain outlets – all under one roof to do one thing: successful business.

The Toy Fair offers 23,000m² of space devoted to the toy, game and hobby business and is the only dedicated toy trade event in the UK.

Since the move back to Olympia London in 2010, the show now occupies the Grand and National Halls including the upper levels.

In 2023 the show attracted more than 250 exhibiting companies who came to meet buyers from the UK and abroad. As well as buyers from across the range of independent and multiple stores, online retail and catalogue retailers, the Toy Fair attracts a range of visitors from licensors and play specialists to designers, inventors and distributors. In 2022 it also attracted more than XXXX members of the press.

Exhibitor Testimonials

Toy Fair is an amazing opportunity to have meaningful conversations with all our customers - and this is invaluable to having a successful year. We’ve had an awesome show connecting with those buyers & cannot wait to be back for 2025. It's been great being back at Toy Fair this year & we're delighted to have been recognised for our innovation in Bitzee and Paw Patrol too! Bring on 2024!

Spin Master

This has been our third consecutive London Toy Fair since setting up the UK & Ireland business in 2022, and each year has surpassed the last. Connecting with our business partners could not be more efficient, having met with over 100 retailers across the three days, along with media, agencies and licensors. Thank you BTHA for yet another excellent Toy Fair!

Just Play

Toy Fair 2024 has been a huge success for everyone at Playmobil. Getting to meet buyers and retailers to show our fantastic new ranges has been an amazing experience. There is only one place Playmobil UK could start our 50th birthday celebrations and that is London Toy Fair!

Playmobil

We came to our first Toy Fair with our debut pocket money toy Nestlums not knowing what to expect! We have not only ended up with major UK retailers wanting to place orders but are now booking flights unexpectedly to Nuremberg to continue closing a deal with a distributor and another partnership that will both transform the volumes we were expecting for this year!

Nestlums

Toy Fair 2024 has been successful for Learning Resources. We have seen most of our loyal customers and been introduced to many new customers. There has been a lot of positivity around 2024 and Numberblocks.

Economy package (The Greenhouse)

£1,332+VAT per 5sqm

Economy packages are available in the Greenhouse Area. This is a dedicated space in the Grand Hall for companies wishing to take a small space. The Greenhouse Area was introduced in 2004 and has proved extremely popular with new and small exhibitors, usually selling out by late Summer.

Economy packages can be booked in 5, 10, 15 or 20 square metre units and are built of GES Complete walling with a green overhead leaf design top up panel, grey carpet (surrounding carpet is green) and an overlay name board for the company name and stand number. The structure is 2.5m high and is made from aluminium upright posts and a combination of 1m and 0.5m infill panels.

Included in the package price is the stand build, grey carpet, fascia/name board with stand number, a fluorescent strip light and a chair – one item per each 5 sqm unit.  Please note power socket fittings are NOT included.

Exhibitors are not permitted to make any structural alterations to Greenhouse stands e.g. removal of fascia boards.

IMPORTANT: Please take care to review the technical specification of the GES Complete system here. If you have any technical questions or are concerned that existing graphics you have will not fit the GES Complete system, please contact [email protected]

Shell Scheme Package

£274+VAT per sqm

Shell Scheme Packages are available in any size upwards of 6m2 and in any area of the halls (excluding the Greenhouse Area), according to availability at time of booking. Shell scheme stands are built for you and are made from GES Complete (1m W x 2.5m H) wall panelling. Straight fascia boards are provided to each open side of your stand displaying your company name and stand number. Fascias are 300mm deep with the underside at 2.2m from the floor and aluminium trim at the top and bottom. Fascia supports are generally every 4 metres located at the contractors discretion.
Included in the package price is the stand build, fascia/name board with stand number and grey carpet to allow your products to stand out. Carpet and fascia colour can be upgraded at a cost.

Exhibitors are not permitted to make any structural alterations to shell scheme stands e.g. removal of fascia boards.

Self-Build Package

£215.50+VAT per sqm

Self-Build Packages are available for those wanting to build their own stands. This package is simply the ‘space-only’, no walls or carpet are included. It is also the responsibility of the exhibitor to ensure that their space is finished to a high standard.
Please also note that due to the structure of the venue, there may be columns within your stand area. The BTHA will not charge for the area taken up by the column/s but more importantly please ensure you incorporate these columns when designing your stand.
As the Toy Fair includes the Grand Hall and National Galleries, it is imperative that if your stand is visible from the Gallery, the top of your stand is finished to a high standard – hiding any lighting/wiring tracks with suitable fire proof material and if so desired enclosing your meeting rooms. NB: Please be aware that depending on the size of the meeting room you may need to install suitable evacuation directional lighting. More operational guidance and stand build rules and regulations can be found in the Exhibitor Show Manual.
All self-build exhibitors will be required to submit stand plans for approval prior to arriving on site.

PR Manual

The Exhibitor PR Manual is an invaluable guide to getting the most in terms of PR from your time at the show.

Exhibitor Kids Policy

During the build and break periods, children under the age of 16 are not permitted within the venue – please refer to the Build/Open/Break schedules in the Exhibitor Manual for specific timings. Proof of age may be requested.

Toy Fair Charity

Each year many of the Toy Fair exhibitors generously donate products to the Toy Fair designated charity at the end of the show equating to thousands of pounds worth of toys. This is done via a ‘trolley dash’ undertaken by volunteers at the end of the final day of the show.

KidsOut were the the official Toy Fair charity for the 2024 event.

Toy Fair exhibitors donate 5,600 toys to KidsOut through the 2024 Trolley Dash
