Feel The Fun at Buyer-Friendly ToyFest West 2013

Buyers attending ToyFest West, formerly known as the Western States Toy & Hobby Show, March 10-13 in Las Vegas at the South Point Hotel will be offered a new and improved floor plan that assures easy, direct access to hundreds of manufacturers and more than 3,000 of their new products. 

“Our venue continues to evolve each year, and we anticipate a 30 percent growth in 2013,” said WTHRA Board President Bill St. John. “We know that our attendees will surely feel the fun next year as they also enjoy Las Vegas, a more regionally attractive destination with great spas, casinos, restaurants and shows. Frankly, Las Vegas just makes good business sense during these economic times. Add that our host, South Point, is offering an unprecedented hotel room incentive that gives March 11 free to the first 300 guests that book March 9 and 10 with them and you simply can’t beat this deal.” 

ToyFest West is the country’s oldest regional toy trade show, spanning more than 40 years. The show offers a playground of buying activity where attendees gather in a familiar, relaxed and friendly environment.  In addition, ToyFest West will again host the annual Gala Event, a much-anticipated affair celebrating industry colleagues who have been inducted to the WTHRA Hall of Fame. This year, WTHRA congratulates the 2013 Retailer of the Year, Geppetto’s, located in La Jolla, Calif.
