Exhibit Space Filling Up for 2023 Preview & 2022 Holiday Market
April 25, 2022 | The Toy Association is currently taking meetings with top buyers in Los Angeles about setting their plans for attending the 2023 Preview & 2022 Holiday Market at the Dallas Market Center (September 20 to 22). Booth assignments for the much-anticipated event have already begun; toymakers are encouraged to get on board for what is shaping up to be a crucial fall event for any play professional looking to make business connections for 2023 and close out holiday 2022 on a high note.
“Whether you are a seller or a buyer, now is the time to make your plans for fall!” said Kimberly Carcone, senior vice president of global market events at The Toy Association. “We are already seeing an exciting slate of exhibitors booking space at the show, confirming what we already know — companies are anxious to reconvene in person and drive their businesses forward. The Preview & Holiday Market offers all that – and more – during three action-packed days under one roof at the Dallas Market Center.”
Basic Fun!, Blue Orange Toys, Crazy Aaron’s, Goliath, Jazwares, and PlayMonster are just a few of the companies that have already reserved their space. Booth options will accommodate private appointments offering a sneak-peek at 2023 product, as well as walk-in business from buyers looking to fill last-minute orders on fourth-quarter drivers for holiday 2022.
“While our fall show has traditionally been a long lead-driven show, this year’s event will act as a great pathway for those focused on year-end or hoping to tackle a little of both 2022 and 2023 business,” added Carcone.
The Preview & Holiday Market will also be an opportunity to celebrate the Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards, which has moved to a new fall timeline and will honor top toys, games and properties and the philanthropic work of The Toy Foundation right in time for the holiday season. Women in Toys, Licensing, and Entertainment (WiT) has also just announced that WiT Empowerment Day will take place at the Dallas Market Center on September 19, the day before the Preview & Holiday Market opens.
Attendee registration for the Preview & Holiday Market will open in June.
