Reminder: Book an Appointment with the Trends Team at Toy Fair Dallas

September 9, 2019 | New toys? New lines? New trends? Exhibitors at Toy Fair Dallas are encouraged to book a 15-minute appointment with a member of The Toy Association’s trends team to showcase what they’ve got for 2020. Hot trends and related products will be promoted by the Association throughout the coming year in broadcast TV segments, articles, and other opportunities.

“We’re looking forward to meeting with companies to see their key drivers as we determine next year’s major trends in toys, play, and youth entertainment,” said Adrienne Appell, senior trend expert at The Toy Association. “Products shown in prototype form and/or under embargo will be kept under wraps until the new year, when we kick off an exciting whirlwind of trend and product promotions, beginning at Toy Fair New York 2020!”

Toy Fair Dallas appointments are now being scheduled; members of the team will be available to meet with companies Tuesday through Friday, October 1 to 4. Preference is given to Toy Association members on a first-come, first-served basis. To book an appointment, contact Angela Stanton-Weekes.

In addition, companies that would like to give viewers a sneak peek at their 2020 products are encouraged to email Adrienne Appell for a chance to have their toys highlighted in a Fox News broadcast segment that will be filmed on-site at the Dallas Market Center.

“We’re seeking new products to give shoppers at glimpse at what will be trending next year – and we will potentially mix in some hot toys for holiday ’19 as well,” added Appell. “It’s an exciting opportunity to connect with shoppers at the most critical time of year for our industry.”

Toy Fair Dallas takes place Wednesday, October 2 to Friday, October 4 in Dallas, TX. For more information on hotels, registration, and retailers attending the show, visit
