US Toy Fair breaks into the 40 largest industry trade shows in North America

In at number 39, it marks the first time the show has been ranked within the top 40.

US Toy Fair has come in at number 39 in Trade Show Executive magazine’s Gold 100 List of North America's largest and most-accomplished trade shows in 2015.

Breaking into the top 40 for the first time, US Toy Fair's latest Gold 100 ranking indicates that the 2015 show was the 39th largest industry trade show in North America based on net square footage of paid exhibit space. Since the Gold 100 List’s debut in 2008, US Toy Fair has climbed 25 spots from its 2008 ranking of 64th place.

“We are thrilled to take home this honour for Toy Fair and the ranking improvement speaks to the show’s growth and widening appeal over the years with more than 30,000 global toy industry professionals who now attend our show,” said Marian Bossard, TIA SVP of global market events.

“We can’t wait to unveil what’s in store for Toy Fair 2017."

Toy Fair 2017 will take place Saturday, February 18th through to Tuesday, February 21st, and is expected to draw buyers, exhibitors, manufacturers’ reps, inventors, and other industry professionals from more than 100 countries.
