ASTRA's 2019 Marketplace & Academy will be held in Pittsburgh, PA June 9-12. We are looking forward to offering a dynamic selection of presentation topics and speakers to attendees. 

ASTRA's Marketplace & Academy provides an opportunity for all independent toy industry members to elevate their professionalism and refresh their expertise through the education offerings at our annual conference. 

You're one step closer to sharing your expertise at Marketplace & Academy!

ASTRA is looking for presentations with forward-thinking ideas, speakers with the ability to emphasize attendee engagement through enthusiasm and expertise as well as provide attendees with actionable takeaways.

ASTRA continues to make changes to the Academy structure of the conference and offer attendees multiple opportunities to interact with experts. When reviewing proposals, we may ask you to alter your timeframe and content to fit a specific delivery format. For example, 15-minute key points presentation versus a 1-hour breakout session.
