Buyers can now register for this year’s event, taking place in Dallas, Texas this October

Buyer registration is now open for the Fall Toy Preview 2017, slated to take place October 3-5 in Dallas, TX, USA.

Produced by The Toy Association, the annual show consistently draws a considerable crowd of global buyers from mass, long-lead, and high-volume specialty retail outlets. They flock to the Dallas Market Center to preview thousands of compelling playthings shown by creative toy companies more than a year in advance of in-store delivery.

Notable retailers at the 2016 event included Walmart, Target, Toys“R”Us, Amazon.com, Kmart, Michaels Arts and Crafts, and A.C. Moore. Dozens of licensors were also on hand, including 20th Century Fox, Cartoon Network, Disney Consumer Products, NBC Universal, and Nickelodeon. Hundreds of toymakers showcased new and developing product lines in open, closed, or combination booths and showrooms.

“Fall Toy Preview remains a must-attend event for everyone in the toy and play community,” said Marian Bossard, Senior Vice President of Global Market Events at The Toy Association. “Our participant base continues to broaden, with strong international representation and buyers from across the industry eager to tap into the show’s business, trend-spotting, and networking opportunities as they plan for the following year’s all-important fourth quarter.”

Attendee and buyer registration for the upcoming event can be completed online. Toy companies that would like to capitalise on this important gathering are encouraged to contact their Account Executives to secure a spot at this year’s show.
