The British Toy and Hobby Association [BTHA] announced that exhibition space at Toy Fair 2020 has now completely sold...
It’s good to be back – and what an issue to start with: the Autumn Fair preview! We have a huge showcase, starting on page 81. So have a flick through, and mark down the stand numbers now to make sure you make the most of your time at the NEC. If you’re travelling to London, we have a Top Drawer Autumn preview on page 61. And if you’re travelling further afield, read all about Bangkok’s STYLE Fair on page 77. Plus, there’s a new show in town! Purify Living will be debuting at the Business Design Centre, Islington, in October – we have the lowdown in our On With The Show pages, so diarise the date and check it out!
With Christmas just around the corner, we also have our Christmas gift guide – Part 2 of two. There’s also a toys & games feature, women’s accessories and, of course, our Brand Spanking New pages – there really are some stunning items out there. I was spoilt for choice as to what to feature!
I look forward to seeing many of you in Birmingham in September. Until then, enjoy the rest of our lovely British summer.
