ToyNews is once again bringing together toy companies and the UK's inventor community in the hope of bringing a raft of innovative new products into the toy market.

We launched the Inventors Workshop in 2014 to try and end the frustration for inventors seeking time with toy companies.

The Workshop is back again this year with an inspiring conference programme and the life changing “Pitch” sessions that will give inventors an even greater chance of connecting with the right business partner.

As a partner involved in the Workshop, a company can connect with creative inventors via private scheduled one to one meetings, secure a contract with potentially the next hot toy or game and help to educate, promote and inspire the next generation of inventors.

Companies will also benefit from high profile branding across the duration of the Inventors Workshop marketing campaign.

Firms already on board for this year's Inventors Workshop include Hasbro, Ooba Toys, Vivid, Sambro, Flair, Worlds Apart, Character Options, Re:creation, Jazwares, Cartamundi and Nomad Games.

There are three different packages that firms can get involved with, but act fast as places are now extremely limited.
