New York Toy Fair named 35th largest and most accomplished in Gold 100 Trade Show ranking

The North American International Toy Fair has been named among the Trade Show Executive’s Gold 100 List of the largest and most-accomplished shows in the US for 2017.

The Toy Association’s New York Toy Fair came in at number 35 in the listing that was revealed at the Gold 100 Awards & Summit this October 10th to 12th at the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California.

The show’s ranking indicates that the 2017 event was the 35th largest industry trade show in North America, based on net square footage of paid exhibit space. The show was ranked at number 37 on the 2016 list and since the Gold 100’s debut in 2008, it has climbed 29 spots from its ranking of 64th in the inaugural listing.

“New York Toy Fair’s Gold 100 ranking has moved up two spots from last year as the appeal of the show grows to include nearly 30,000 global toy professionals who come to see what’s new, what’s next and cutting edge in toys and play,” said Marian Bossard, the Toy Association’s executive vice president of global market events.

“We are thrilled that the show gets the accolades it deserves. Toy Fair 2019 will continue to build on the show’s success so stay tuned for announcements on some exciting things in store.”
