Mojo Nation has dated its Play Creators Festival 2019, a three-day event boasting conferences, pitching opportunities and educational sessions for those in the world of toy and game design.
Following on from the success of the inaugural Play Creators Festival, held earlier this year, 2019 will see the event move to a new home at London’s Stamford Bridge.
Kicking off the Festival will be the Toy and Game Design Conference, taking place at Stamford Bridge on Monday, September 9. With a line-up of speakers from across toys, games, tech and the wider worlds of design, the day has been curated to ‘inspire, enlighten and wow the industry’s creative backbone.’
Taking place the evening of September 9 will be the Play Creators Awards, a new addition to the Festival. More details on this event will follow shortly.
Wednesday, September 10 will host the Mojo Pitch, a day where designers, inventors and agencies can present exciting new concepts to a range of different participating toy and game firms.
The final day of the Festival, Thursday, September 11, will host the Student Design Conference at London’s Design Museum. Aimed at encouraging more product design students to take up careers in the toy and game sector, the event is taking place at the Design Museum in London and will be free to attend for students and course leaders.
“We’re delighted to be returning next September with our second Play Creators Festival,” stated Mojo Nation co-founder Billy Langsworthy.
“With the incredible feedback we’re received from our inaugural Play Creators Festival, we’re already looking forward to putting on a bigger and better show in 2019, and further establishing it as a must-attend event for the global toy design scene.”
