A pre-inquest into the death of Ava-May Littleboy, who died after being thrown from an inflatable trampoline, is set to take place today (Tuesday).
The three-year-old from Somersham near Ipswich was on the inflatable at Gorleston beach when it exploded.
Her inquest opening heard she had died from a traumatic head injury.
The tragedy led to an outpouring of grief with many tributes left at the seaside playground.
Following the girl's death on July 1, 2018 a man and a woman in their 40s were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter, but police later announced they would be dropping the charges following talks with the Crown Prosecution Service.
The last inquest review in September heard that the Health and Safety Executive had yet to decide whether it would bring charges relating to the incident.
The review also heard that the full inquest, scheduled for January 13 next year, will look at the acquisition and risk assessments of the inflatable and the working practises of Johnson Funfairs.
