This year’s Inventors Workshop will be at held at Whittlebury Hall in Northampton on Tuesday, September 22nd 2015.

The event will see some of most innovative and influential toy and game manufactures, technology companies and financial houses present, discuss and connect with over 150 inventors expected at the one-day conference.

This year, we are splitting the conference into two new tracks to make it easier to enjoy insight, discussions and presentations from inventors, manufacturers, technology companies and funding experts. This also allows us to incorporate sessions that we couldn’t squeeze in last year.

There is an Inventors Track with a programme suited for those starting their journey in the toy industry boasting educational sessions on elements including funding, toy safety, legalities, retail and pitching.

We also have an Industry Track suited to more experienced inventors (and delegates who attended last year's event), with talks around vital issues affecting toy and game creators today, including crowdfunding, technology, and life as a freelance inventor.

The tracks feature inspiring talks from the likes of Jenga creator Leslie Scott, LEGO designer Samuel Thomas Johnson, Hasbro's senior director of Global Product Acquisition and Inventor Relations Phil Sage and Seventown's senior VP of design and production Steve Perrin, among others.

After our inspiring programme, we will be giving more time on the day to the life changing One2One sessions that will give inventors an even greater chance of connecting with the right business partner.

After last year, and the success Gillian Logan and Skinny Sketcher have enjoyed since being picked up back in September (the product launched at Toy Fair and is hitting shelves in May), we know this event works. It brings creative types together and gives this thriving community an opportunity to network, socialise and get their ideas out there.

We are excited about the year ahead and hope the 2015 Inventors Workshop can make a big difference to the next generation of play and the people within it.
