Toy Shows (posted May 2020)
We normally share information about upcoming trade shows on this page. Large trade shows will likely be off the table for a while due to current events, and we look forward to the day when we can safely meet and greet to talk toys in person again. But, in the meantime, there’s no reason to wait to do business. Contact us for your representation needs or for information on availability of any of our lines for your retail outlet.
Mid-States 2020 Toy Rendezvous (posted May 2020)
(A/C/A Associates had a great show at this year’s Mid-States Toy Extravaganza in February. Two of our vendors (NKOK, Inc. and Best Ride On Cars) were each awarded one of the top-level Paddle Buy promotions. There are only a handful of these in the entire show. Along with those, we also had multiple items selected for Show Only Buys and Show Specials. And to top it all off, our booth received the “Best Booth” Award in the multi-vendor category! Thanks to all of our vendors for providing the booth samples to allow us to really showcase their products.
