Meet with The Toy Association Trends Team in Dallas
July 5, 2022 | The Toy Association’s trends team will be on site at the 2023 Preview & 2022 Holiday Market this September scouting new playthings to determine the hot toy trends for 2023. Exhibitors are encouraged to book appointments with the trends team to showcase their new products while in Dallas. All embargos will be honored. The deadline to book appointments is September 1.
During product preview appointments, the team will meet with exhibitors and review new products and line extensions to help establish the major trends and the latest developments in toys, play, and youth entertainment. These trends will be unveiled to media, buyers, and other industry professionals next March during the Toy & Play Product Media Preview in New York City.
Once established early next year, the trends and related products will be incorporated into The Toy Association’s media messaging, including TV segments and trade and consumer articles.
Preview & Holiday Market exhibitors interested in booking a 15-minute appointment with a member of the trends team should contact The Toy Association’s Angela Stanton-Weekes. Members of the team will be available to meet with companies Tuesday, September 20 through the end of day Wednesday, September 21.
The 2023 Preview & 2022 Holiday Market, taking place September 20 to 22 at the Dallas Market Center in Dallas, TX, is produced by The Toy Association. More information can be found at ToyAssociation.org/PreviewMarket.
