Toy shows are held all over the country. As of 2015, Toy Fair is held yearly in New York City, while both ToyFest and the ASD trade show take place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Toy shows tend to happen during the toy industry holiday buying season, the first three months of the calendar year. Preview toy shows and networking events occur year-round and showcase toys that might become available in the coming buying season. These shows typically cater towards persons directly connected to the toy industry and not to the public. Attendees must usually register in order to gain access to these events.
