Toy Fair offers virtual year-round platform for buyers

Toy Fair, in the absence of Q1 live events, encourages toy companies to leverage Toy Fair Everywhere, a virtual platform that is available during Toy Fair season and all year long.

“Toy Fair Everywhere is the ideal environment to get matched with new buyers year-round, engage with current and prospective customers, and showcase entire product lines or curated offerings with photos, videos, and catalogs,” said Kimberly Carcone, senior vice president of global market events at The Toy Association.

Category Marketing Buying Events

Toy Fair Everywhere is hosting Category Marketing Buying Events throughout 2022 to provide a focused environment for buyers to explore and shop from Toy Fair Month kicking off on Feb. 21 – the week that Toy Fair New York would have taken place.
