Toy Fair Pavilion to debut at January 2024 Temps at Total Home & Gift Market

Dallas Market Center and The Toy Association will jointly debut the Toy Fair Pavilion during The Temps at Total Home & Gift Market, Jan. 10-13, 2024.

The market in January will be the largest winter presentation of temporary exhibits in more than twelve years and will feature more than 1,000 booths across five distinct product neighborhoods.

The Toy Fair Pavilion, located on the 12th floor of the World Trade Center, will feature exhibitors representing brands in toys and youth entertainment, bringing a plethora of toys, puzzles, games, educational products, plush, art activities, dolls, action figures, licensed products, and more to buyers shopping the show. Youth merchandise is among one of the hottest categories in retail and represents more than $100 billion in global economic impact, according to Dallas Market Center.

“Products that are trending in the youth entertainment space are some of the most sought-after items by independent retailers as they are increasingly seeking a wider range of products to create lifestyle experiences in their stores,” said Kimberly Carcone, executive vice president of global market events at The Toy Association. “The opportunity to connect our companies with buyers from diverse retail outlets in Dallas in the first quarter is exciting for us.”

One of Dallas Market Center’s propositions is presenting a single marketplace in which retailers may source products for the upcoming seasons across multiple categories.

“We are thrilled to welcome The Toy Association, with whom we have worked for many years on events to bring together buyers and sellers,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “The fact that they have selected Dallas for this new venture speaks volumes on our partnership and on the strength of our marketplace to deliver value to the retailer. The January pavilion is a sneak peek of what we know will be a must-see destination.”

According to Dallas Market Center, the Toy Fair Pavilion is a complement to the hundreds of youth entertainment brands already exhibiting in Dallas in permanent showrooms and temporary space. Showrooms in the World Trade Center including Diverse Marketing, McManemin, Eureka Toy & Gift, andToyservice Southwest already showcase many leading brands, and dozens of showrooms across campus also carry select brands of children’s apparel and accessories as well as toys, games and gifts.
