Feel The Fun at Buyer Friendly Toyfest West 2013 at South Point Hotel, Las Vegas

Buyers attending ToyFest West, 2013, will waste no time navigating the trade show as the South Point Hotel offers a new and improved floor plan that assures easy, direct access to hundreds of manufacturers and more than 3,000 of their new products.  Buyers will conveniently stroll the lanes and feel the fun on a show floor that features greater product visibility, mapping efficiency and buyer productivity...all combining to allow even more playtime for buyers to enjoy the nearby Las Vegas attractions.

 "Our venue continues to evolve each year, and we anticipate a 30% growth in 2013," says 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 Monday 3/11 FREE to the first 300 guests that book 3/9 & 3/10 with them and you simply can’t beat this deal!" 

ToyFest West, (formerly known as the Western States Toy & Hobby Show) is the country’s oldest regional toy trade show, spanning over 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, California.

"ToyFest West allows me to have more time with each of the individual vendors on a more personal basis," says Kathie Dockstader, Buyer at Top Ten Toys. Adds Eugene McKeown, VP Sales & Marketing, Daron Worldwide Trading Inc., "As a manufacturer, I have been attending Toy Fest West for over 20 years. The overriding feeling from buyers, reps, and manufacturers is that Toy Fest West has a friendly, conducive atmosphere for doing business. We come together in a relaxed venue to learn from each other, listen to one another and write orders."
