Infopro Digital, organiser of the Deauville Preshow will launch the first edition of Direct Sourcing toys & games this October at the Hilton Amsterdam-Schiphol.

Direct Sourcing is a targeted, international, hosted buyer event for the promotion of FOB and private labels using the effective showroom format of the Deauville Preshow Noël. The event offers opportunities for face-to-face meetings and interactions in an easily accessible location in the heart of the European market.
