Toy World October

With the recent announcement that BLE has unfortunately been cancelled for this year, Toy World can offer companies which operate in the licensing field the the perfect platform to showcase their latest properties and licensed ranges.

The Show Off Licensing Special will form the centrepiece of our bumper October licensing-focused edition. Mailed out to all the licensees and retailers who would have visited the show, this issue will give licensors the perfect opportunity to put their licences in front of every key licensee and retailer in the kids’ space, as they start their decision-making process as to which brands to sign up for 2021.

There will also be a dedicated feature within the Licensing section for licensees to highlight their latest character licensed ranges to retail buyers from across the kids’ retail spectrum.

The October Licensing Special issue will land on buyers’ desks on 1st October, so it is perfectly timed to reach licensees and retailers ahead of the first week of the exciting new Festival of Licensing, which is being organised by Informa Events.

The editorial deadline for this edition is 3rd September, while the ad copy date will be 14th September.
