The Chicago Toy & Game Experience

Richardglobalheader (4)
Mary Couzin and her Chicago Toy & Game Group are working hard to make the 3rd week in November one of the most important weeks in the toy industry calendar
…and they are succeeding.  The week, which already features the Toy & Game Inventors Conference on November 17 and 18; the 4th annual TAGIE Awards the evening of November 18 and the Chicago Toy & Game Fair on November 19th and 20th will now include a Social Media & Play conference on November 18.

SmapThe new Social Media & Play conference will explore social media and gaming trends and how they fit into the future of the toy and game industry.  I am finding that there is still some resistance among toy industry regarding social media much less social gaming.  So, I consider educational opportunities like this to be a great opportunity to embrace these new paradigms for creating and reaching customers. 

I will be Chicago for all the events and hope to see you there as well.

  1. It’s a great show. Our company showed for the first time last year and we had great success. We will be back this year, with more support and team members in attendance. Stop by our booth, Horizon Hobby, and say hi.

  2. Yay! Last but not least, The Young Inventor Challenge on display at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair will feature kid inventors and their original toy & game inventions. Come out and vote for your favorite new invention!
