The First National Toy Show of the Year
Western Toy and Hobby Representatives Association (WTHRA) will be holding its annual West Coast Toy Trade Show for its 10th year in Las Vegas, Nevada, a locale with extensive offerings, including room rates well below East Coast and Southern California locations, world-class restaurants, nightlife, and numerous amenities. Everybody wins!
Over 500 Manufacturers
WTHRA is proud to present the 2023 ToyFest Trade Show. This toy trade show will feature over 500 manufacturers premiering their 2023 products in Las Vegas.
Toy Categories Galore
In addition to toys, other represented categories include gift, infant and toddler, education & books, stem, museum, hobby, costume, beauty, and novelty. Traditionally a manufacturers’ representative show, the move to the World Market Center, saw an increase in manufacturer participation, which will continue in 2023 at WCMLV.

Testimonials From Manufacturers and Retailers
Brian Miller, President Geppetto's Inc.
Toyfest 2023 was a terrific experience! Particularly with out a February New York Toy Fair, this show got us on track for new introductions! Also the combination of permanent showrooms and the temporaries rounded out the show experience. Loved it and I'll be back next year without a doubt!
Marty Mandell, The Testing Guy
TOYFEST has become more important than ever, as it's the ONLY TOY SHOW in the U.S. After attending 42 “Pomona Toy Shows” this one (2023) has got to be the Greatest show, with the greatest energy and the greatest management!
Alan Amaral, Fusion Product Placement, LLC
Congratulations to TOYFEST as it continues to provide a positive experience for all segments of the Toy Industry and, especially, as an alternative to the "major" trade shows. Certainly, Las Vegas and the World Market Center provides an affordable, inviting, and user-friendly venue and alternative to New York for significant and growing sectors of the toy industry.
Connie & Todd Jacob, Learning Express Toys - Ohio
