Event Watch: Toy Industry Awards 2012
The long wait is over folks! It’s only a matter of days until the much-awaited U.K. Toy Fair 2013 opens, and until the best of the British toy industry is named! As Toy Fair is celebrating its 60th anniversary, this year will see a different — better — Toy Industry Awards, which will take inspiration from The Oscars. The annual gala will look into the best toy retailers of the British toy industry in 2012, and guests will be treated to drinks, food, and canapés before the prestigious event kicks off.
Retailers who made it to the list of nominees are looking forward to major awards, such as the Independent Toy Retailer of the Year, Specialist Multiple Toy Retailer of the Year, General Multiple Toy Retailer of the Year, Online Toy Retailer of the Year, Best Overall Toy Retailer of the Year 2012 for UK and Ireland, and a Special Recognition Award.
The Toy Industry Awards 2012 is set to take place at the Upper West Hall of Olympia in London on January 22, 2013.
