ToyNews Women of the Year feature to return in 2017

ToyNews is bringing back its successful Women of the Year power list once again, which aims to champion those who go above and beyond in the toy industry.

Set to be published in the June issue of ToyNews, the feature aims to recognise women from all areas of the UK toy business, whether that is within marketing, sales, design or as a rising star.

Last year’s list was another corker, filled with seasoned members of the industry from sales directors and inventors to PR execs and managing directors, as well as entrepreneurs.

Once again, this feature is open to every woman in the UK toy space, including those of you who may have appeared in 2016’s Women of the Year listing.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of a feature that champions women from all areas of the UK toy space and recognises the achievements that they have accomplished throughout the past 12 months,” commented Jade Burke, deputy editor of ToyNews.

“I hope the whole of the toy industry gets involved again and makes it another success.”
