Toy Fair® Named to Annual Gold 100 Trade Show List

June 20, 2024 | The Toy Association™’s Toy Fair® earned a place on Trade Show Executive (TSE) magazine’s Gold 100 List for the 2023 show.

The iconic Toy Fair was recognized as one of the largest and most accomplished trade shows in North America. This recognition was based on three key metrics: net square feet of exhibit space, number of exhibiting companies, and total attendance. Toy Fair first debuted on TSE’s Gold 100 list in 2008.

“Toy Fair is more than just a business event; it's a hub for sparking creativity, feeding the innovation pipeline, gaining critical business-boosting insights and trends, and building invaluable connections, all while actually having fun and enjoying the camaraderie and fellowship of a truly passionate industry” said Kimberly Carcone, executive vice president of global market events at The Toy Association. “We are appreciative and humbled by the show's continued recognition, which would not be possible without the unwavering support of our show participants and partners. As Toy Fair returns to its Q1 timeframe in 2025, it is immensely fulfilling to celebrate our most recent success while also keeping our focus on serving the broader toy community and ensuring every attendee maximizes their time in New York.”

Toy Fair 2025 will take place Saturday, March 1 through Tuesday, March 4, and is expected to draw global toy professionals from all facets of the industry, from manufacturers to mass, mid-tier, and specialty retail buyers; licensors and entertainment executives; inventors and designers; global media; and other industry professionals.
