Women in Toys’ Empowerment Day to Take Place at Preview & Holiday Market
April 25, 2022 | Women in Toys, Licensing & Entertainment (WIT) has announced that it will return to the Dallas Market Center to host its annual WIT Empowerment Day on Monday, September 19. The event will be held the day before The Toy Association’s 2023 Preview & 2022 Holiday Market kicks off on September 20.
WIT Empowerment Day will feature private product pitches, licensing opportunities, mentorship activities, educational sessions, and networking opportunities for professionals in the areas of toys, games, licensing, and entertainment. The goal of the event is to help women entrepreneurs, designers, and inventors connect with manufacturers, inventors, and other key industry executives to take their ideas to the next level.
Empowerment Day is one of several activities taking place alongside The Toy Association’s Preview & Holiday Market, which is set for September 20 to 22, 2022, and marks the return to live events for many in the industry. The marketplace will meet the immediate and long-term business needs of toy buyers and sellers and offer an array of opportunities for deal-making, networking, and trend-scouting. The Toy Foundation’s Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards will also be held in conjunction with the Preview & Holiday Market, having moved to a new fall timeline.
