Event tickets

The Toy Industry Awards is the industry’s gala event which follows the opening day of Toy Fair starting at 6.00pm. Guests are able to enjoy a drinks reception and light food in Olympia’s Pizza Express which is then followed by a seated awards ceremony in the adjoining Apex Room, one of Olympia’s special rooms for such events. The presentation of the highly coveted Toy Industry Awards will take place here from 7.00pm. The venue’s close proximity will allow guests to move easily from the exhibition into the awards event. The evening’s formal proceedings are planned to finish no later than 8.30pm.

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.

Tickets to the event are priced at £30+VAT.
