Why Attend?


Marketplace & Academy: - More Than a Toy Show



It's more than a toy show! ASTRA's Marketplace & Academy brings the specialty toy industry together for a big toy family reunion featuring the best and brightest in products, ideas and connections.


Gain new insights during education sessions, make valuable connections at networking and social events, and explore the trade show floor to discover the makers and their products that will delight your customers.

 

Marketplace & Academy is more than a toy show - and while we could take up lots of internet space listing all of the reasons why you should attend, here are a few:

Connect and Have Fun with Your Peers!


Make memories with your specialty toy industry colleagues. You'll have plenty of opportunities to share stories, collaborate and overcome challenges with the best in the industry – all while having fun. You especially won't want to miss out on the Welcome Reception!

Be the First to See the Newest Products and Meet the Makers!


With our Amazing vendors bringing their newest products, you'll be sure to find the perfect selection of toys and children's products to fill your fourth-quarter shelves – and save big dollars with show-only specials. Meet the makers behind the toys and gain insights on how to sell-through their products.

Remember Your Why!


It's easy to get stuck in the day-to-day of doing what you do. Sometimes you need to step away from your day-to-day to remember your why. Marketplace & Academy is the perfect place to do just that. Whether you're new to the industry or have seen it all, you'll find numerous opportunities that remind you why you do what you do – and keep you inspired as you head into the fourth quarter.

COVID-19

COVID Update for Marketplace.


ASTRA will be following the COVID requirements and recommendations of the City of Long Beach, during ASTRA Marketplace & Academy, June 12 – 15, 2022.


HEALTH ORDER FOR CONTROL OF COVID-19 ORDER ISSUED: April 29, 2022 Effective as of 12:01 a.m. on Friday, April 29, 2022


Masking will continue to be strongly recommended, but no longer required, in most indoor settings and in K-12 Schools or childcare facilities.

Masks are required to be worn by everyone, 2 years of age and older, regardless of COVID19 vaccination status, in the following settings within the City:


* On public transit (examples: commuter trains, subways, buses, taxis, and ride-shares)

* Indoor transportation hubs (examples: airport and bus terminals, train and subway

  stations, seaports or other ports, or any other area that provides transportation)


As per the CDC, "Masks help prevent people who have COVID-19, including those who are pre- symptomatic or asymptomatic, from spreading the virus to others."


ASTRA encourages everyone to take the precautions they feel necessary to ensure their own health and safety.



We ask that everyone be considerate and respectful of the choices of others.
