Toy Companies Invited to Participate in “CF@TF Inventor Day”

January 3, 2022 | Inventor relations staff from Toy Fair exhibiting companies are invited to participate in Creative Factor’s CF@TF Inventor Day and hear product pitches from pre-selected inventors and designers during Toy Fair New York.

“Through the Creative Factor, we are excited to bring back CF@TF Inventor Day for its third year, which will provide exhibitors with another avenue to discover the next great toy idea at Toy Fair,” said Kimberly Carcone, senior vice president of global market events at The Toy Association. “CF@TF Inventor Day is a unique opportunity for companies and inventor relations departments to sit down in person with designers, discuss their ideas, test their products and prototypes, and hopefully keep the conversation going to bring their concepts to life.”

The Creative Factor advisory board, led by Brett Klisch, Creative Factor co-founder and creative director of Peru Meridian Studios, and Matt Nuccio, owner of Design Edge, will select the inventors and designers invited to participate in CF@TF Inventor Day.

As part of the Creative Factor educational programming at Toy Fair New York, CF@TF Inventor Day takes place on Friday, February 18, the day before the show opens, at the Javits Center in New York City. Pitches will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Toy Fair exhibitors interested in attending CF@TF Inventor Day to hear pitches should notify The Toy Association’s Jackie Retzer by January 31.

Toy Fair New York will take place Saturday, February 19, to Tuesday, February 22, 2020. Learn more at
