Fanattik wins best Family Business at the Business Masters Awards

Fanattik, the pop culture specialist, is ending 2021 on a high, winning a Business Masters award at a ceremony held in Manchester earlier this month.

The gift and collectibles company, a licensee for Hasbro, Universal Studios, Microsoft, ViacomCBS and others, supplies all levels of European gift retail. The award crowns what has been a hugely successful year for the boutique gift supplier, which is also in the running for a Gift of the Year award with its SpongeBob SquarePants premium bottle opener.

“At the start of this year we moved into Fanattik HQ, launched our Dungeons & Dragons and Magic the Gathering collections as well as doubling our office team,” says Anthony Marks, M.D Fanattik. “Next year is going to be equally a whirlwind year as we pick up the keys to our second warehouse in February and have plenty of anniversaries to get our teeth into, such as 40 years of E.T. and Knight Rider as well the blockbuster that will be Jurassic World Dominion, which we are a also a gift licensee for.”

The Fanattik team was out in force to pick up the business award, and it was the first time many of them had been out together since winning Northwest Business Of The Year, organised by the Federation of Small Business, just prior to the pandemic.

Fanattik will be visiting London, Nuremberg and New York Toy Fair as well as the Las Vegas Licensing show. Retailers wishing to join the Fanattik family on their fan-focused journey are invited to email hello@fanattik.co.uk
