Toy & Edu China, Baby & Stroller China and Licensing China moved to May 2022

25 Feb 2022

The three Shenzhen based shows, Toy & Edu China, Baby & Stroller China and Licensing China will now take place from 5 – 7 May 2022. The show dates have been pushed back from their original dates at the end of next month, in order to support pandemic containment efforts. The fairs will still take place at the Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center.

Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd commented: “As part of the effort to contain the spread of Covid-19, the local government has mobilised designated areas of the Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center as a temporary resource and cross-border transportation facility, to assist with pandemic prevention efforts, with this arrangement expected to last for one month. During this time, the concerned areas of the venue will be enclosed and will only be reopened after thorough disinfection. Therefore, in order to align with the pandemic containment and prevention efforts and to safeguard the health and safety of fairgoers, the organisers have decided to delay the three shows until 5 – 7 May. We’d like to express our thanks to all participants for their continued understanding and support. And we very much look forward to hosting the fairs later in the year, when it is safe and possible to do so.”

Toy & Edu China, Baby & Stroller China and Licensing China are organised by Guangdong Toy Association, Guangzhou Li Tong Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.
