Beanotown exhibition encourages licensees with prototype showcase

Start Licensing is offering toy companies the chance to get ahead of the market with a showcase of potential Beano products at a free exhibition: Beanotown.

Celebrating 75 years of DC Thomson’s children’s publication, the three-month event will run until September 8th.

MD of Start Licensing, Ian Downes, told ToyNews: “[Beanotown] creates a new sales platform.
“The exhibition allows us to test and show some new product ideas.We have encouraged licensees to bring their buyers to Beanotown.

“It is a very effective way of showcasing the brand, showing licensed products and flagging
up ideas.”
