The TIA has voted to keep the American International Toy Fair in New York at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for 2007 and beyond.

The US trade association is already under contract with the Javits Center to host the event next year from February 12th-15th but the closure of the International Toy Centre prompted a discussion about the future venue of the event.

The announcement by the Chairman of TIA, Arnie Rubin, CEO of Funrise, came following a scheduled board meeting at TIA's annual meeting, known as ToyCon, held in Phoenix, Arizona.

?The Board was unanimous in its decision to keep New York City as the host of the American International Toy Fair and continue its 102-year tradition,? said chairman Rubin.

?New York City is the cultural and business capital of the world,? said Rubin. ?This decision could not have been made without the cooperation and support of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Centre, NYC & Company, and the Empire State Development Corporation, and we anticipate their continuing support and assistance in maintaining Toy Fair in New York City.?
