November 14, 2017 | The 115th North American International Toy Fair is still three months away, but exhibit space is rapidly filling up. As a result, The Toy Association is now accepting waitlist applications from those interested in booth space at the show. The waitlist is open to both new and returning Toy Fair exhibitors.
Toy Fair will take place Saturday, February 17 to Tuesday, February 20, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. Companies whose waitlist applications are accepted will be among the more than 1,000 toymakers hailing from six continents showcasing hundreds of thousands of new playthings at Toy Fair.
“With 441,993 net square feet of confirmed exhibit space, the 2018 show is on track to surpass last year’s record-breaking event,” says Marian Bossard, executive vice president of global market events at The Toy Association. “A diverse array of exhibitors is the lifeblood of Toy Fair, and the reason that more than 30,000 international buyers, licensors, reporters, and other play professionals annually flock to the show. With expansion renovations at the Javits Center ongoing until 2022, we are working hard to make room for every company that wants to exhibit.”
Companies interested in being added to the exhibitor waitlist should contact their Toy Association account representative to apply.
