When the Independent Toy and Gift Show returns in 2022, it will do so under the INDX Home umbrella, and will be rebranded as INDX Toys & Nursery.
INDX (short for Independent Exhibitions) represents a group of established trade shows covering fashion and home categories which are curated by buying group AIS (Associated Independent Stores). The addition of Toys & Nursery will strengthen the INDX Home portfolio which includes Furniture, Housewares, Linens, Beds & Bedroom and Gift Food.
Taking place on from 6 April to 7 April at Cranmore Park Exhibition Venue in Solihull, INDX Toys & Nursery will expand into the new â€˜nurseryâ€™ category, which will include gifts, accessories, and soft furnishings.
AIS head of toys & childrenâ€™s gifts Rosie Marshall said: â€œWe are very excited to be joining INDX Shows, and rebranding to INDX Toys & Nursery has given us the perfect opportunity to explore new product categories. We believe that adding nursery suppliers to our existing exhibitor mix will evolve the show. Introducing brands that specialise in nursery products reflects the changing needs of todayâ€™s retailers and will provide visiting buyers with a more inclusive presentation.â€
INDX Toys & Nursery is open to all retailers and is free to attend. Buyers can register for tickets at https://www.indxshows.co.uk/indx-home/toys-nursery/registration. Exhibitor registration for the show opens on 1 November. Further updates and news can be found at www.indxshows.co.uk or by following @INDXHome on social media.
