The first-ever Shanghai Toy Show—organized by POP MART—opens on Thursday (4.5) and runs through Saturday (4.7). Here’s a look at the official show floor map as well as the booth list. Looking at the map, two things stand out. First there are several extremely large booths, quite a few 20×20’s and several 30×30’s, quite rare for an art toy show. The second is that this is probably the most useful—most of the booths have recognizable brand logos—and attractive convention floor map that we’ve seen.
We’ll bring you more STS news today, and then we’re off to Shanghai. If all goes according to plan, we’ll be bringing you a steady stream of instagram updates from the show floor from roughly 7 PM to 1 AM PDT on Wednesday (4.4) through Friday (4.6).
