If you would like to do business or expand your business with Walmart, register by January 15th for YOUR 15-20 minute Walmart PITCH Meeting! A designated area has been reserved for all registered and approved PITCHES!

WIT will arrange private meeting rooms for registered and accepted suppliers during Toy Fair for YOUR 15-20 minute Walmart pitch.
You must officially register for the WALMART PITCH by following the instructions below!
