Description

Founded in 1961, WTHRA is a non-profit organization that is most recognized for producing and promoting the annual “Western States Toy & Hobby Show”, now known as ToyFest West. Our trade show has grown over the years and is now recognized as both the second oldest and second largest toy trade show of its kind in the United States.

Our Mission is to develop, promote, manage and nurture this trade show, to mentor and educate our members and the industry they serve, and to market and sell wonderful, safe products through integrity and vision, with the understanding that it is our children that ultimately benefit.

ToyFest West is the most cost effective toy show your company will participate in anywhere.

Exhibitors are assured sufficient space to effectively showcase their collections.

Our host hotel is the beautiful South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa.

In addition, we hope that all exhibitors will be able to join us for the many social events connected with the show including the Gala Reception, the Annual Hall of Fame Awards Gala, the fun-filled Toyfest Game Night and the captivating Seminars. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to spend quality selling time with many of the retail buyers that never make it to New York!
