Here is a bit about the awards:
The TAGIE Awards Dinner is an elegant and playful evening gala that brings together industry leaders from inventors to manufacturers to retailers – for a night of celebration, networking and fun! Held in conjunction with the Toy & Game Inventors Conference (T&GCon) and The Chicago Toy & Game Fair (ChiTAG), the TAGIE Awards are voted on by industry experts, retailers and consumers alike. Honoring recipients for excellence in the categories of Toy Design, Game Design, Young Inventor and Rising Star, the TAGIE Awards recognizes toy and game inventors from across the country, whose playful creativity and inventiveness resulted in some of the most fun and entertaining play products on the market today. We’ll also pay homage to those inventor greats who stand out in the eyes of the toy industry for their exceptionally innovative spirit for fun, philanthropy, and humanitarianism.
