To date, buyer delegations from globally-recognized outlets including Amazon, Walmart, Toys‘R’Us, Costco, Family Dollar Stores Inc., Big Lots, AAFES, Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., 99 Cents Only Stores, Barnes & Noble, QVC, Nordstrom, BJ’s Wholesale Club, and many more have registered to attend the show, where hundreds of exhibiting toy manufacturers will privately showcase hot new toys, games and youth entertainment products more than a year in advance of in-store delivery for Holiday 2014.
“With Fall Toy Preview attendee registration having opened just two weeks ago and so many powerhouse retail outlets already signed on to attend, we are confident that a highly successful, collaborative and energetic event is in store for everyone who joins us in Dallas this fall!” said Marian Bossard, TIA vice president of meetings and events.
Last year, the show welcomed a record-breaking number of exhibiting companies and 20 of the top 25 global toy sellers. TIA’s annual event was transformed into a bustling hub for the international toy industry, with buyers from Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Australia, Hong Kong and dozens more countries represented at the show.
