BTHA confirms Toy Fair 2016 dates

The organisers have managed avoid a date clash with Nuremberg Toy Fair

The BTHA has confirmed the dates for Toy Fair 2016, which will run between Sunday 24 and Tuesday 26 January in order to avoid a clash with Nuremberg Toy Fair.

Below is a full statement with all the details released this morning by the British Toy and Hobby Association:

The Toy Fair dates for 2016 are confirmed as Sunday 24 January to Tuesday 26 January 2016.

The BTHA and Olympia have been working hard to find a resolution to the clash of dates since finding out about Nuremberg not moving to its normal week at the beginning of February. The BTHA wishes to alleviate issues for visitors and exhibitors.

Extra opening hours are planned on the first two days with opening from 8.30am – 6.30pm on Sunday and Monday and opening from 8.30 – 4pm on Tuesday. Build times have been arranged to allow contractors the same number of hours as previous years in order to create a great event. All opening and build hours are at the bottom of this newsflash.

To acknowledge that there may be extra cost and inconvenience for some exhibitors, Toy Fair will offer a number of discounts:

• Rates will be frozen at 2015 prices
• 5% special discount to all exhibitors
• 3% early booking rebate for all exhibitors who have paid deposits by 21 April 2015
• 4% early settlement rebate for all those paying their final invoice by 30 October 2015

This equates to a 12% rebate, and with the price freeze is equal to a 14-16% lower rate in 2016. In addition the exhibitors that have received a discount for participating on the balcony level will continue to receive a discount on their space, which will be 6% for 2016.
