Don’t Miss Out on All Preview & Holiday Market Happenings Next Week!
September 12, 2022 | The toy industry is buzzing with excitement as it prepares to gather at The Toy Association’s 2023 Preview & 2022 Holiday Market, taking place September 20 to 22 at the Dallas Market Center. With one week left until the event, there’s still time for buyers and professional attendees to register and make appointments with more than 260 exhibiting manufacturers over the three-day show.
“The Preview & Holiday Market is days away, and we can’t wait for the toy community to meet again at our first major in-person show in over two years,” said Kimberly Carcone, executive vice president of global market events at The Toy Association. “With hundreds of global buyers and exhibitors expected to attend and educational programming scheduled for the event, the Dallas marketplace is the essential place to discover new products, scout trends, and network.”
Global buyers representing more than 67,000 brick-and-mortar stores will meet with exhibitors of all sizes at the show’s hybrid open layout format or in closed meetings. Attendees will be able to preview thousands of toys and games debuting in 2023 and place orders on ready-to-ship items to close out a successful 2022 holiday season.
Everyone registered will also have the opportunity to attend multiple on-site events over the course of the three days, including The Toy Foundation (TTF)’s fall debut of the Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards & Opening Night Party on September 20, which will bring the industry together to reconnect, unveil the much-anticipated TOTY category winners, and support the philanthropic work of The Toy Foundation.
Additional show happenings include Women in Toys’ Empowerment Day (September 19); TTF’s full slate of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programming (September 21); and the opportunity to meet with The Toy Association’s trends team as it maps out its 2023 trends report, which will be presented on March 8 during “The Play Date” media event, hosted in partnership with Adventure Media & Events.
