Toy Industry Awards event evening

The 2024 Toy Industry Awards event is the industry’s gala event which follows the opening day of Toy Fair. Guests are able to enjoy a drinks reception, with hot and cold canapés, which is then followed by a seated awards ceremony in the Hilton Olympia’s Westminster Suite. The evening’s formal proceedings are planned to finish no later than 8.00pm.

The event is one of the key dates in the industry calendar, and one which provides an excellent networking opportunity for industry colleagues to celebrate the first day of Toy Fair and be the first to discover the winners of the toy retailer and supplier of the year awards.
