Toy Fair Dallas welcomes manufacturers and marketers who want to highlight their holiday season’s drivers and have even just one product ready to preview for next year’s Q4. Although appointments with retailers – mass, long-lead, and high-volume specialty – are not required, they are highly recommended.
Toy Fair Dallas features a variety of booth options to accommodate private appointments as well as walk-in business. Open booth displays are strongly encouraged to enable exhibitors to highlight items from their current offerings as well as their preview lines and inspire buyers to discover new products, trends, and suppliers.
