September 20 – 22, 2022
Dallas Market Center
The Toy Association’s 2023 Preview & 2022 Holiday Market is where retailers met with hundreds of brands and got to see Holiday drivers and scout out innovative products to lay the groundwork for 2023’s fourth quarter.
In addition to showcasing their toys to buyers from the nation’s top toy retailers, international outlets, and specialty stores (including Walmart, Target, Hobby Lobby, TJX Inc., Barnes & Noble, Nordstrom’s, IT’SUGAR, and hundreds more), Dallas exhibitors also had the opportunity to give media, including CBS11 and Fox4, a first look at the toys that could top wish lists for this and next holiday season and report on the category winners of The Toy Foundation’s Toy of the Year Awards.

"I really enjoyed meeting everyone in person and being able to touch and feel the product. As a buyer we do not have enough time in the day to get what we want done – so having all of the vendors right next to each other makes seeing brands that we normally would not have time for easy!"
—Greg Bauerfeld, Associate, Buyer – Toys, Macy's, Inc.
"It was wonderful to see new products and work in-person with our vendors. Two things stood out – one was the ability to see the actual product that is shipping this fall. The second was helpful was to be able to work with our vendors partners to start planning for 2023, including the ability to impact products for fall of next year."
—Lisa Visco, VP of Merchandising, Learning Express
"I thought the event was well planned and organized. Can’t wait until New York!"
—Thomas Jacober, Senior Buyer Cracker Barrel
