The first London networking event for women working in the toy, entertainment and licensing sectors kicks off next week.
Women in Toys has been running for the last decade in the US, with members including the likes of Bandai, Dreamworks, Hasbro, Infantino, Leapfrog, Mattel, Mega Brands, Nickelodeon, NPD, Sesame Workshop, The Licensing Company, Toys R Us, Ty, Vtech and Warner Bros among others.
The European kick off event will take place on Tuesday October 28th at the University Women's Club, London between 6.30pm and 8.30pm. The cost is £20 for non-members and £10 for members.
A number of other networking events will then follow in 2009, at London Toy Fair, Nuremberg Toy Fair, New York Toy Fair and Brand Licensing Europe.
The aim of Women in Toys is to help members develop key contacts within similar businesses. Members receive discounts to various WIT events including the Wonder Women of Toys Dinner which is held during NYC Toy Fair.
