The organizers of the New York Toy Fair which takes place every February in New York City has issued a statement stating that next year's 2021 event has been postponed until 2022. In the statement there is mention that they will try and do something Toy Fair related in the Spring of 2021, and the The Toy of The Year awards (TOTY) and Hall of Fame induction will go virtual for 2021. This of course is all in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Quote

by closely gauging exhibitor and retail buying community feedback together with the latest facts related to the pandemic and the state of business travel, The Toy Association has made the decision to postpone Toy Fair New York. At the same time, we are developing with our members a Toy Fair offering in the spring of 2021 and of course the always anticipated Toy Fair New York in the expanded Javits Center in February 2022. The Toy of The Year awards (TOTY) and Hall of Fame induction will go virtual for 2021.



Toy Fair for most of our readers is a time to see what new action figure products will be revealed for the coming year. Like with San Diego Comic Con that was canceled this year, we will likely see most companies continue to reveal new stuff online.

With the constant reveals, it makes you wonder if there is any point to toyfairs and comic cons anymore

Well for just reveals to the public, no. But especially at Toy Fair but even some at SDCC these events is where the toy manufactures sell their product to the retailers and that I imagine is much harder to do virtually.
