The BTHA confirmed this morning that the 2021 London Toy Fair is cancelled, TNP received the following statement, which reads:
“We have been working closely with Olympia London and we have together taken the decision that despite all best efforts and endeavours by both parties, regrettably the Toy Fair 2021 is unable to take place. This conclusion is due to government restrictions now in place on large scale indoor events in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. The wellbeing of our exhibitors, visitors, staff and contractors is paramount and currently the risks are considered too great to allow the show to go ahead as dictated by the government regulations. We empathise with the industry’s disappointment - this is the first year that Toy Fair will not take place in 66 years. We express our thanks to all exhibitors for their patience and understanding and for the support of the wider industry, and very much looking forward to a big return in 2022 from 25-27 January.”
Refunds: The BTHA also confirmed that stands booked for the 2021 show will receive a refund and need to contact Tracey@btha.co.uk with the account name, number and sort code.
