The American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA) is calling on all members and specialty toy retailers to register for the 2014 Annual Convention and Expo.

The show – titled Marketplace and Academy – will run from June 8th – 11th this year at the Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona.

And to encourage early registration, the organisation is not only offering an Early Bird discount rate but also the chance to win a free iPad.

With the tagline, Where Play Means Business, the show offers visitors the chance to see the top new products, discuss ideas to take their business to the next level, 4th quarter deals and an array of sessions and speakers.

ASTRA’s Marketplace and Academy boasts a productive but relaxing atmosphere with plenty of one on one relationship building time with toy manufacturers.

The show is open to anyone involved in the retail of specialty toys, gifts and cards, children’s books and CDs, play and cultural items, school supplies, hobby supplies, juvenile products and baby products.
