Join the Next Generation of Toy Industry Professionals
Toy Industry Next Generation (TING) was formed in January 2013 to support the growth and retention of “young” and “new” professionals in the toy industry through networking and social opportunities; education and information sharing for professional development; participation with philanthropic organizations, community service; and more.

TING is a special interest group that is enthusiastically endorsed by the Toy Industry Association (TIA). Activities sponsored by TING are intended to help its members foster, early in their toy career, a high level of personal investment within the toy industry and develop successful career tracks.
TING is organized around three strategic principles: Gather, Grow and Give.
TING will create opportunities for members to come together – regionally as well as at major toy industry events – for the purpose of networking, social opportunities, professional development, educational opportunities and community service. TING is also planning to create a peer-to-peer support network for members to share ideas, opinions, experiences, and to raise questions to the group.
TING will focus on education and professional development by organizing speakers and discussion panels made up of Toy Industry Hall of Fame members, other industry leaders and young professionals that will benefit and be of interest to TING members.
TING supports the Toy Industry Foundation and will allow members to participate in local and national community service opportunities.
Participation in TING events is free for professionals who are employed by TIA member companies; individuals from non-member companies will be invited to participate in most TING-sponsored activities for a modest fee.
