What attendees are saying about Marketplace & Academy 2019

"This was a wonderful experience! The exhibitors were all so excited to be there and talk about their products. The events were engaging and fun. If you are in the toy industry, this show is a must."

"As a company with two retail locations and a thriving online brand presence, we are always looking for a way to efficiently buy seasonal goods. The ASTRA Marketplace provided such a wealth of opportunity that we were able to buy about 80% of our holiday need in one day at the show. With travel becoming expensive and time out of the office at a premium, having a resource like this show not only saves money – it saves time!"

"This is where I make all of my connections. The relationships I make at Marketplace and Academy are more valuable than any special that can be offered. This is where I meet people and share ideas with those people to keep the industry moving forward."
