Inventors Dinner

Welcome to the UK Toy
Inventors’ Dinner 2024...

The annual get-together of inventors, designers, product-pickers
and other toy business professionals from around the world.

Date: Wednesday, 24th January 2024

Venue: The Queen’s Club, West Kensington, London, W14 9EQ


The UK Toy Inventors’ Dinner is a forum for toy inventors to get together informally during the UK Toy Fair with representatives from the toy manufacturing community. Since the first dinner, in 1984, thousands of inventors and manufacturers have taken the opportunity to get to know each other and catch up with old friends over a good meal.

Open only to bona fide toy industry professionals, the dinner is held at a different London location each year and features awards, fun challenges and an after-dinner casino in aid of a children’s charity.

The 39th UK Toy Inventors’ Dinner will take place on Wednesday, 24th January 2024 at The Queen’s Club, West Kensington, London, W14 9EQ.

Venue directions/details will be provided upon purchase of you ticket(s).

We look forward to welcoming you in January; The Inventors’ Dinner committee: Mary Danby, Kirstin Knox, Billy Langsworthy, Lizzy Moody, TJ Morrison, Gary Pyper, Simon Skelton and Nicola Wastie.

Reasons to attend

A bit of light relief during the hustle and bustle of the London Toy Fair, the UK Toy Inventors’ Dinner is a relaxed, informal gathering.

The W.I.T.T.Y. Prize is presented to the inventor(s) of a product introduced in the preceding year and judged by Inventors’ Dinner attendees

The I.D.I.O.T. Award is given as a tribute to luminaries who have made outstanding contributions to the toy industry.

We are grateful for the support of generous sponsors who help us each year to offer you a special evening and raise funds for our chosen children’s charity.

Each year, one of our dinner guests is invited to nominate a children’s charity. Guests are asked to support the charity by buying vouchers to take part in an after-dinner entertainment.
