Thanks Richard.

First and foremost, I want to say that we, as Revenew Sales, have exhibited at Fall Toy Preview for just over 10 years (guess that would make it 11, huh?). We love Dallas and the show has always been an integral component in our annual planning for the upcoming year. In some ways, the show has become even better than it was when we first exhibited. There are shorter-term opportunities, with a couple catalog retailers actually adding some of our vendors for late Holiday catalog drops...Priority 1 Follow-Up List btw.

The "LA Toy Preview" is a reality. It's not going away either.

So...we just need to have an open conversation on how best to integrate the two shows. Our buyers (as are we) are pulled in so many directions this time of year (add in NY Comic Con to the mix in 2018), that we HAVE TO figure out a way to create a more convenient "Mash-up" of our efforts.

How do we all get to same city at the same time?

If we can't do that, how do we make sure that we don't overlap each other's shows?

At the end of the day, we're all in the same Toy Industry and we need to work together for the mutual benefit of everyone. I know that sounded a little old-school Saturday morning "Justice League of America "...but I think we all know what I mean.

Thanks for Everything You Do!
