The Press Release:
With planning underway for the in-person Toy Fair New York 2021 from May 1 to 4, The Toy Association has now revealed show dates for Toy Fair New York 2022. The four-day show will bring toy and play professionals together from Saturday, February 19 through Tuesday, February 22, 2022 in the newly expanded Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.
“We are thrilled to announce Toy Fair New York’s return to its usual timeframe and to highlight the opportunities the new state-of-the-art Javits Center will bring with it,” said Marian Bossard, executive vice president of global market events at The Toy Association. “With an expanded footprint for the overall show, Toy Fair NY 2022 will open the doors to new exhibitors and allow for new educational offerings, expanded networking opportunities, sponsorship opportunities, and more!”
Until then, The Toy Association will keep paving the way for new business opportunities for members year-round. Toy Fair Everywhere hosted thousands of toy professionals from nearly 100 countries and exhibited 33,000+ products over three digital market weeks. Moving forward into 2021, the Toy Fair Everywhere platform will transition to a 365-model. Last week, The Toy Association also wrapped up the third virtual product preview day held in collaboration with major North American retailers and will continue to create similar events with prospective retailers.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Readers of my two websites know full well about just how much we love the Toy Fair and back when 2020 began we celebrated our outlets 10th anniversary of attending the event. Finding the 2021 event cancelled sure did depress me but let’s be honest for a moment, there is no way to safely facilitate such an happening under the current circumstances with the Coronavirus Pandemic still in full sway. Sadly, New York City seems to go up and down in reported cases and the vaccine still seems to be a way off from being available. Let’s cross our fingers that the May 2021 proposal can take place because I am growing tired of virtual this and that for sure. I miss the people that I always see at these shows but can agree that safety is of the most important thing right now. What do you readers think about the news about the late Spring 2021 dates and the upcoming 2022 ones? Chime in down below in the comments and keep your eyes peeled for updates along these lines. Stay safe out there I hope to see a lot of you as soon as its possible to do so.
