Hundreds of thousands of innovative, creative and skill-building toys and games will be unveiled in New York City this weekend at the 113th North American International Toy Fair – the largest toy and youth entertainment product marketplace in the Western Hemisphere.
Owned and operated by the U.S. Toy Industry Association (TIA), Toy Fair will open its doors at the Jacob Javits Convention Center this Saturday, February 13. The show floor will open up to an estimated 30,000 global play professionals – including international buyers from more than 7,000 retail outlets – who will explore the massive 415,000 net square feet of exhibit space bursting with brand-new toys and games.
“Toy Fair kicks-off at a time of success and momentum, following the toy industry’s outstanding sales growth in 2015. With over 1,200 passionate exhibitors showing hundreds of thousands of new toys, games and playthings, the excitement is palpable,” said Steve Pasierb, TIA president and CEO. “Professionals from more than 100 countries will be placing orders as well as participating in Toy Fair’s educational and networking opportunities. The business transactions, camaraderie, trend spotting and exchange of fresh ideas make our New York City show an unparalleled experience in the toy world!”
