2023 Trade Show Calendar: Your Essential Update rounds up what we know so far of this year’s events calendar.

With face to face events well and truly back, the licensing industry has a full calendar of trade shows, conferences, fundraisers, awards and more taking place throughout 2023 – both in the UK and overseas.

From design-led shows such as Top Drawer (London Olympia, 15-17 January) through to the future of publishing at London Book Fair (London Olympia, 18-20 April); a June visit to Las Vegas for Licensing Expo (Mandalay Bay, 13-15 June); and Brand Licensing Europe returning to a later timeframe (ExCeL, 4-6 October).

Spielwarenmesse also returns for the first time since 2020 (Nuremberg, 1-5 February), while Toy Fair New York will make its debut in its new autumn slot (Jacob Javits, 30 September-3 October). has put together a guide to some of the key events for your calendar in 2023 (correct as of Wednesday 4 June).
