What Past Exhibitors Say

"ChiTAG is “THE” event for Inventors and Manufacturers within 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. I’m very excited for this year’s event - it is timed perfectly for seeing the best of the best toys and games right in the heart of our biggest selling season!" 

- Gary Swisher, EVP Design, Spin Master

ChiTAG is a high point of the year as I'm able 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 that offers this combination of new and experienced inventors, learning and networking opportunities, and an event that is literally and figuratively built around an open-to-the-public Toy Fair set on Chicago’s historic Navy Pier.  It is a great place to experience every part of the toy industry, from the inventors, colleagues, and business partners, to watching the children’s reactions to the toys and games on the show floor to wrap up the week.  To experience all of this against the backdrop of the great city of Chicago makes this a much anticipated week on my calendar!”  

- Rich Mazel, Head of Global Product Acquisitions, Hasbro

“ChiTAG is an incredible event. We’ve made a distribution deal, sold over 100 games (and took orders for more) to consumers at the show each year and have licensed items from inventors we met with at the show. However, what I like best is the fact that Mary generates so much media coverage at ChiTAG. We will be investing in interactive exhibits for the next show that we hope will be a big hit. Thanks, Mary for getting this event rolling.”

- David Norman, President, Goliath Games North America
