What’s included?

Those who secure a ticket and ATTEND Sweet Suite will also receive a swag bag. If you secure a ticket but do not attend Sweet Suite, you will not be sent swag under any circumstances. The Toy Insider is not responsible for lost or stolen bags.

Can I bring my kids or spouse/best friend/partner/contributor?

Sweet Suite will welcome ONE child and/or ONE ADULT per outlet pending ticket availability (unless a medical companion is needed) AND if the child meets the following:

Children may attend Sweet Suite under the following conditions:

  • Children must be ages 4 and up. If you have a child under 6 months old, you may babywear during Sweet Suite, but no strollers will be allowed on the show floor. No children between 7 months and 4 years old may attend due to safety reasons.
  • Children must be the MAIN personality on their OWN social channel(s) or blog for at least the past two years with consistent content; OR actively appear on their parents’ YouTube channel for at least the past two years with consistent content. (Note: For 2020, if your child does not have their own channel or is not part of a YouTube family, they may not attend Sweet Suite! If children have their own channels, they must also meet our attendee guidelines! See here for more.
  • Influencers MUST be the parent or legal guardian of child in attendance. Absolutely no exceptions will be made.
  • Each outlet is limited to bringing ONE child (with the exception of YouTube Family Channels only). While we fully understand some families have more than one child, we want to give each attendee the chance to experience Sweet Suite with their kids, and space is extremely limited.
  • Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times. If children are found wandering alone, we will locate their parents and everyone will be escorted out of the venue. Children may NOT be left in sponsor booths unattended at any time.
  • Children must be registered under their own ticket.

Do I HAVE to bring my kids, or can I come on my own?

Adults are more than welcome to join us without children. This is a business event that is even more fun for adults than it is for kids.

I’d like to attend as press! What do I do?

If you are a member of the traditional media, please contact Linda Krebs at LKPR to request a press badge to Sweet Suite!

What should I wear?

Sweet Suite is a business casual event. You will be networking and meeting with brands and potential partners, but showcase your style and who you are. Most importantly, be comfortable and be YOU! Keep in mind: NYC is HOT HOT HOT in July! 🙂

Where should I stay?

Sweet Suite is a one-night only event, but if you’re coming to NYC from out of town and need a place to stay, check out our hotel option.

Can I transfer my ticket?

Sweet Suite tickets are non-transferrable under any circumstances. However, if you can no longer attend, please let us know ASAP, as tickets are limited and we want to give everyone a chance to come! If you have any questions or concerns, please email us!
