New England hosted the first-ever New England Game and Kit Day on October 27th at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield, MA. Thirty-seven vendors exhibited at the event with the goal of teaching and training retailers about their new games and craft kits for the upcoming holiday season. Vendors included Ravensburger, Fat Brain Toys, Eeboo, Goliath Games, Carma Games, Winning Moves and many more.
“Here at Goliath, we thought the inaugural New England Game Day was a huge success! The retailer turnout was terrific. Everyone came ready to play, learn, and have fun! We were busy from start to finish. Thanks for a fantastic event RBG Sales. We’ll be back in ’23!” said Brian Turtle, Director of National Sales at Goliath.
Retailers from New England and Upstate New York travelled to the event with their staff to have fun, play games and gain valuable product knowledge, for a strong 4th quarter sell thru.
Nancy Doyle, Owner of The Toy Chest at the Nutshell remarked, “Thank you all so much for this great day! Every person that I spoke to (vendor/rep/store owner) thought it was great. SO happy to be included and I know an event takes a lot of effort – but you really outdid yourselves and it was fantastic. I really hope these can be repeated! I left with so many new things I had not seen and have already placed orders!”
Bill Jensen, Owner of Darien Toy Box stated, “One word to describe today “excellent”! Fun event, we found things we hadn’t seen before!”
With the tremendous turnout of almost 100 retailers and their staff, RBG Sales plans to run another Game and Kit Day in 2023.
