ToyFest West announces dates for 2018 show

WTHRA's (Western Toy and Hobby Representatives Association) President Bill St. John announced dates for the 2018 ToyFest West convention, which will be held at the South Point Hotel in Las Vegas.

Plans for ToyFest West 2018 began at the May 17 combined meeting of the WTHRA Board and Slate who are creating and making changes for a better show next year.  The board unanimously decided TFW 2017 worked well as a three-day event, to continue with the incredibly well attended Game Night, and to keep the tremendous buy two nights, get one free hotel promotion for the first 300 rooms booked. Some of the changes include revamping the website, creating additional social media sites and producing an even more entertaining Gala.

With this year's show dates three weeks after Toy Fair in New York, and with EdExpo closing its doors, ToyFest West is envisioning an attendance increase in 2018 to ascertain the latest and newest toys and educational products brought to the show floor while taking advantage of generous show specials for the first quarter.

More details about the show will be made available as plans are finalized. At this time, the board would like you to mark your calendars and get ready for an exciting and productive 2018 ToyFest West.
