How successful was Toy Fair 2019 for you?
The 2019 edition of the Toy Fair has been a great success for UL. This year we’re celebrating our 125th anniversary and the Toy Fair has been one of the events to meet the global Toy Industry and present our solutions that drive consumer confidence and enable a safer and more sustainable world.
Why did you initially choose to exhibit at Toy Fair?
We have a long history in exhibiting at Toy Fair, and every year we decide to come back again: at this show we have the possibility to meet large global toy manufacturers, importers, retailers, but also small companies just setting up who are developing products and expanding into the toy industry area.
Why was it important for you to exhibit at Toy Fair again in 2020?
We have great projects for the 2020 edition of Toy Fair. In May 2019 we opened the new UL’s South UK Campus in Basingstoke and we are proud to offer a seamless end-to-end service solution with unparalleled technical expertise across a wider range of industries, including the Toy industry. We’ve expanded our capabilities and capacity in Basingstoke, making it one of the largest commercial test facilities in the United Kingdom. Our expertise in innovating safety, quality and environmental solutions can help manufacturers and retailers verify every aspect of the supply chain and production process.
Do you have any advice to other exhibitors/attendees at Toy Fair?
Keep your stand open and inviting, spend all your time on your stand, you never know when the next BIG customer is going to turn up. And the best coffee can be found at FCB right next to the UL stand B49.
How can we find out more about you?
You are all invited to come and visit us at UL’s booth during the show, in the meantime subscribe to our UL PULSE newsletter to stay tuned and visit CRS.UL.com to know more about our customised programmes to deliver quality and verification solutions designed to fulfil the unique needs of manufacturers, retailers and distributors.
Are there any highlights at Toy Fair that stand out for you?
Toy Fair is an important annual appointment for UL and our participation to this event is renewed year by year with great passion by UL’s team of safety experts. We are proud to be part of this show attracting companies, buyers, licensors, distributors and members of the press from the UK and abroad.
