Hours and Events

ToyFest West 2017

The Buyers’ Playground! Our show has enjoyed a substantial growth in attendance over the years, with impressive increases in both exhibitor and buyer participation contributing to the overall success of the event. Attendance now draws from not only the west, but from many other parts of the US, Mexico and the Pacific Rim countries.

Attendees recognize that travel to industry trade shows in New York in the winter months can be both complicated and expensive, and find the appeals of beautiful western weather, easy arrival and departure on our spacious convention facilities, and the casual, reunion like atmosphere of our event to be a winning combination.


Show Dates: March 5th thru March 7th, 2017
Where: South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada
Hours: Sunday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday & Tuesday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.

It is all about the camaraderie!

WTHRA Chairman of the Board of Directors, Blake Goldenberg, says it is all about the camaraderie.

“Those of you that have joined us at our annual trade show know exactly what I’m referring to, a sense of family. At ToyFest West you’re treated as a real person, not just a number; almost as if you’ve just come home. The show is set up in an open environment with open booths, welcoming buyers to browse. The manufacturers & sales representatives are there to help and spend time with you. You won’t feel rushed; instead you’ll feel relaxed and more productive than other trade shows. Since 1961, WTHRA has been producing an outstanding show; isn’t it about time you come see what all the buzz is about? I look forward to seeing you there!”
