We know you've been dying to learn more about the 2nd Annual Designer Toy Awards and the time has finally come to break the silence. Possibly the most exciting news, for Designer Toy fans and professionals, is that this year's ceremony will be open to the public! Yes, it will be a come one, come all affair! "How did we manage this?" you might ask. It's all due to the fact that we'll be holding this monumentous event at the historic Providence NYC locale, one of New York City's most opulent venues.
So in just over a month â on October 13th, 2012 (during the New York Comic-Con weekend) â join us at Midtown Manhattan's Providence NYC, an absolutely stunning space that was formerly a church and then a world famous recording studio, before being renovated into the premiere space within the City that it has become. With 35-foot high cathedral ceilings, multiple levels of open space and a highly tauted full bar and kitchen, we couldn't be happier with our choice of location.
But that's not all. Once the doors open at 8PM, the first 50 non-industry professionals to arrive will receive a free Goodie Bag, filled with wonderful donations from many of our nominees as well as other notables within the scene. And there will be other â even bigger â surprises in store for those in attendance that night, but we can't let all our secrets out just yetâ¦
