BizBash Selects American International Toy Fair as One of New York’s Top 100 Events

Toy Fair gains recognition from event industry leader BizBash as one of the most influential events making an impact in New York.

March 4, 2014 — From advertising and technology, to fashion, entertainment, sports, and more, BizBash has curated its 2014 list of New York’s Top 100 Events—and has named American International Toy Fair to this exclusive list. To choose and rank the Top 100 list, BizBash considers several factors including economic impact, buzz, innovation, and the event’s prominence within the communities it intends to serve.

Toy Fair is an annual event that is owned and operated by the Toy Industry Association (TIA). The largest toy trade show in the Western Hemisphere, Toy Fair takes place each February at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City. The show brings together more than 1,100 exhibiting manufacturers, distributors, importers and sales agents to showcase hundreds of thousands of toy and youth entertainment products to 7,000+ unique retail outlets from 100 countries.

"New York's event calendar has no shortage of influential gatherings that take place year after year. The landscape is diverse and certainly gives other cities a run for their money when it comes to big names, fund-raising numbers, and press mentions," says BizBash executive editor Anna Sekula. "But it certainly changes, too. The past few years have seen the thriving local tech scene lead to a number of prominent conferences, from Internet Week to the New York Tech Meetup and Wired's BizCon. And there are new entries alongside long-established events, like the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, the Frieze Art Fair, and Governors Ball Music Festival.”
