TFW2005 member Fc203 sounds the news alert about updated plans for the 2021 edition of Toy Fair New York:
We canvassed our primary audience of retail buyers and toy sellers to determine whether they want us to plan for a May 2021 tradeshow. They said yes! We heard from them that the first few days of May have high potential, and the timing is relevant to specialty, long-lead, and mass market retailers. May serves specialty in time for Q4 2021; is well-timed for long lead and mass to conduct or complete Spring/Summer 2022 line reviews; and may even offer some early views for Q4 2022. There is also a healthy slate of toy, entertainment, and licensed properties targeted for 2022 that need to be acted upon.
What are your expectations for this show? Review the press release, then join in the discussion on the 2005 boards!
