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
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.”
