Why should you attend People of Play Week?

“One of the first purchases we made as a new design studio was to sign up for a full POP Pro membership. The relationships we have made, the lessons learned and ultimately the deals we have signed as a result of our involvement with POP has paid for itself many many times over. It could cost 10x as much and still be a deal!” you, if interested or dealing in the toy, game and gift area, you check out POP."

--Jordan Goddard, Co-Founder, Indy Toy Lab

"Have you heard? There is a new place for all things toys and it is POP (People of Play). I have attended meetings virtually, have spoken at events and love the interaction participants have. Including new acquaintances, informed topic speakers and students looking for guidance. I strongly urge you, if interested or dealing in the toy, game and gift area, you check out POP."

-Rick Derr,  Regional Manager and owner at Toy Retailer Learning Express Toys.

Also the President of the Franchise Advisory Council representing all LE stores.

"POP Week is “THE” event in the Toy Industry, it is a who’s who of Toy & Game Inventors and Toy & Game Companies. The Conferences, Gala and Fair are unmatched for Educating, Celebrating and Playing in our industry. It is timed perfectly for seeing the best of the best toys and games right in the heart of our biggest selling season!"   

- Gary SwisherCo-Chairperson of CHITAG/POP Advisory Board, Former EVP & SVP at Spin Master and Mattel 

"POP Week is a high point of the year to meet and speak with inventors from around the globe in an amazing, innovative and supportive environment. It is the only toy and game fair offering a combination of new and experienced inventors, learning and networking opportunities.”   

- Rich Mazel, Vice President of Innovation at Spin Master

"I’m looking forward to virtual CHITAG's People of Play Week this year! We won’t be seeing each other for the foreseeable future, so I’m thinking this is the main event that will not be missed."   

- Troy Fischer, Managing Director, Fishco Innovation
