The Toy Association has confirmed that next year’s New York Toy Fair will take place at the Javits Center from May 1st to May 4th 2021.
“We have been presented with a window in the opening days of May and we are willing, ready, and able to put resources toward the show and any other projects that will continue to help members grow their businesses,” said Toy Association President and CEO Steve Pasierb.
“While none of us can be certain what the nation and world will look like some seven months in the distance, we all need the promise of a future for the toy and play industry, a return to a degree of business normalcy, and to reclaim some aspects of our collective pre-COVID-19 lives.”
The Toy Association added that it expects the May show to be different to the usual January New York Toy Fair offering, and is anticipating “smaller footprints, a different exhibitor mix and less extravagant if not workmanlike displays”.
