Thank you to Brands Retail for organising a great conference. I had the pleasure to not only present key brand updates to current and potential partners but join a fabulous panel of industry experts Joel Silverman (kids know best), Tina-Louise Foster (Spin Master), Samantha Bourne (Jazwares) to discuss the toy business. The gala dinner was a lovely way to celebrate an end to a productive day!

Day Two


The Mattel Presentation

'Jon Spalding' - Mattel's new UK Head of Consumer Products for the UK introduced his new team to the audience. A really nice way to kick off their presentation. Mattel focused on their marketing timelines and showed us some behind the scenes production sizzles on their wonderful evergreen IP 'Thomas and Friends'.

The audience was given some He-Man and 'Monster High' updates and statistics around the brand which are huge.

Then we saw a glimpse into Barbie and especially the new movie. we obviously won't give anything away but this look fantastic and I bet Jon and his team are looking forward to that product range coming out.

The SEGA Presentation

It was great SEGA came back to give us more of an in-depth look at their huge iconic IP - Sonic.

Jason Rice the UK Licensing Director gave the audience the marketing plans and key dates for Sonic which showed us some plans they have which we would love to share with you but sadly can't.

Thanks to SEGA for supporting us again!.
