The Toy Industry Association’s North American International Toy Fair has jumped two spots to number 40 on Trade Show Executive magazine’s Gold 100 List of the largest and accomplished trade shows in the country.

The event’s latest Gold 100 ranking indicates that the 2014 show was the 40th largest industry trade show in North America based on 2014 net square footage of exhibit space.

Since the Gold 100 List’s debut in 2008, Toy Fair has climbed 24 spots from its 2008 ranking of 64th place.

“We are proud to take home this honour for Toy Fair and to be counted among the top 100 shows that ‘set the gold standard’ for the trade show industry,” said Marian Bossard, TIA SVP of global market events.

“Over the years, Toy Fair has grown in size and expanded its resources to accommodate the business, educational, and networking needs of the 30,000 global industry professionals who attend. We are thrilled to be recognized by our peers for our highly successful show, and can’t wait to unveil what’s in store for Toy Fair 2016.”

Visitor and exhibitor registration for Toy Fair 2016 is now open and the marketplace will take place Saturday 13th February through Tuesday 16th February.
