Forever Collectibles among first time Toy Fair exhibitors

Licensed sport product specialist among newcomers to show floor for 2018.

Forever Collectibles will be among the first time exhibitors at next year’s Toy Fair – as the show organiser, the BTHA, confirmed the event is already 95% sold out.

Just 5% of the overall space is remaining for the 2018 showcase – a full six months ahead of it opening on January 23. Space in the popular Greenhouse area is already completely sold out.

Forever Collectibles – which has seen its business double in size over the last five years, UK md Paul Hodgson told The Source in an interview last summer – will take its place in the Greenhouse area, which has been extended by 80sqm for 2018 (equating to 16 more stands) to accommodate the huge demand for space.

The show will also welcome back 75% of exhibitors across the toy, hobby and game sector, from Toy Fair 2017 with returnees including licensees such as Flair Leisure Products, Playmobil, Spin Master, Character Options and Vivid to name a few.

Toy Fair 2018 will run from January 23-25 at London’s Olympia. Visitors can register their attendance at from September 5.
