Mike Hartshorn, national account manager at Jumbo Games tells ToyNews why Toymaster is such an important event to the firm.
What will your company be showcasing at Toymaster?
We are showing a number of new lines including adult puzzles featuring Game of Thrones and Thunderbirds, but our big new showcase product is our new Frozen Magical Ice Palace Game.
Will you be running any special show offers?
Yes, we will be running a series of discounts for orders placed at the show as product specific promotions, which will include all of our lines that will be featured in the Toymaster 2015 autumn/winter catalogue.
Why is Toymaster such an important event?
Toymaster members are an important part of our business and this is a great opportunity for us to get in front of them, speak to them and give them the opportunity to not only buy some really great products, but also to benefit from some excellent deals.
Why did you decide to exhibit at the show?
There are an awful lot of trade shows available to support these days.
We have supported this show for several years and will continue to do so as
it reflects how important the Toymaster members are to us, and the independent retailers to the trade in general.
What is your best Toymaster memory?
Despite having worked in the nursery, toy and gifting industry for many years, this will surprisingly be my first Toymaster event, so the memories will start here.
