Hasbro Withdraws from UK Toy Fair 2016

From ToyWorldMag, we receive news of a development concerning the UK branch of Hasbro, and its participation in the UK Toy Fair in 2016. It appears that the company would rather favour the German fair in Nuremberg over the London event, due to the latter being shifted to a date too close to the former.

While the news is a little surprising for a fairly big company, UK Toy Fair has not always brought gigantic amounts of news in terms of new products in the Transformers department - except for Age of Extinction licensed material - and Nuremberg was the first sighting of Titan Devastator. Nonetheless, we're interested in your thoughts, over in the Energon Pub!


Toy World has learnt that Hasbro will not be exhibiting at Toy Fair in 2016 because of the proximity of dates of Toy Fair and the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2016.

A spokesperson from Hasbro UK told Toy World: “Hasbro will not be exhibiting at the next London Toy Fair due to the complexity of the global toy show calendar in 2016. As part of a global organisation we have had to make this tough choice to ensure we utilise our people and resources as efficiently as possible. We nevertheless continue to maximise support for Hasbro’s sales in the UK and remain committed to the toy industry. This is wholeheartedly demonstrated by our attendance at many of the other UK shows and events, our extensive showroom at our Stockley Park offices and our passionate involvement in the Industry’s charitable ventures. We would like to wish London Toy Fair 2016 every success.”

Majen Immink, head of Toy Fair operations and sales commented: “We are sorry not to be welcoming Hasbro back to Toy Fair in 2016. Every year we do expect to see changes in the floor plan as some exhibitors won’t be able to return for varying reasons. We fully appreciate that the date change in 2016 will have impacted on some of our exhibitors more than others. We are nevertheless encouraged by the response by exhibitors and the number of returnees to the show. We have worked hard to mitigate the issues created by the change in the schedule but we do understand that we will not have solved the issues for every company. We, of course, look forward to welcoming everyone back in 2016 and beyond.”
