Exhibition space for the North America International Toy Fair 2015 has officially sold out.

The show has already surpassed a record-breaking 419,000 net square feet of exhibit space at New York’s Jacob K Javits Convention Center, still with two months to go.

The Toy Industry Association has announced that prospective Toy Fair exhibitors will now be placed on the show’s waiting list. The group has stated: “Toy Fair organisers will do their best to accommodate wait list requests.”

“For the first time in the show’s history, Toy Fair has sold out of exhibit space,” said Marian Bossard, TIA senior vice president of global market events.

“More than 1,000 fast acting exhibitors from the US, Canada and abroad made sure to submit their booth applications before the holidays in order to secure their spots at the largest toy marketplace in the western Hemisphere.

“With tens of thousands of visitors expected from around the world, toy Fair 2015 is sure to be a whirlwind of energy, activity and product innovation.”

Boasting more than seven football fields in size, this year’s US show will see buyers, licensors, entertainment executives and play professionals from 10 countries on hand to scout for toy trends.

“Toy Fair has it all, whether you are looking to broker lucrative business deals, network with peers from around the world, take in the latest toy trends, or participate in business building seminars,” added Carter Keithley, TIA president and CEO.

“We look forward to unveiling the boundless creativity and innovative spirit of the North American toy industry at Toy Fair 2015.”
