CHITAG Weekend 2016
Not only do you get to find out about some of the latest and greatest toys that are coming out this season (just in time for the Holidays) - you also get to meet toy inventors, see cool and fun events (this year there is a Yo Yo championship and a giant bubble show scheduled, among others)
A couple of years ago we saw the coolest walkaround dragon/dinosaur I've ever seen.
But one of the things that I like most is that they host a school-based game invention contest, where kids can invent their own games, and then get judged by both professional game designers and the public. I've seen some amazing creativity, and professional level artwork in the past, and I love to just hang around and talk to the kids who are so passionate about what they created.
The other thing is that not only do kids get in the action, but so do adults. There will be adults who are just starting out also, seeking representation, floating their labor of love ideas to see if they would work. I love that ChiTAG gives these guys a chance to meet the public even if they are not quite ready for prime time (though many just need the break) It's the best of all worlds.
