Event Description

New York State Toy Day is a series of meetings and group discussions that will connect toy company representatives with the state’s most influential legislators to discuss key industry issues. Similar to TIA’s annual DC Fly-In, this event provides a critically important opportunity for toy companies of all sizes to meet face-to-face with New York’s top policymakers and help them understand the direct impact their decisions have on toy companies, their employees and their customers.

New York is regularly at the forefront of legislative and regulatory activity that impacts the toy industry:

  • New York toy companies, retailers, wholesalers and distributors account for an estimated 31,685 jobs; $913.81 million in business taxes; and a total economic impact of more than $6.09 billion 
  • More than 96% of the toy manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors in New York are small businesses 
  • Toy Industry jobs in New York state account for $2.1 billion in wages

Whether you are a toy company based in New York … or you simply have business interests in the state … please join us in Albany to share your story with members of the New York legislature and other key decision-makers. New York Toy Day cannot happen without strong participation from the toy industry!
