Women in Toys, Licensing & Entertainment has shed light on this year's WIT Empowerment Day.

Taking place in Dallas on October 5th, this year's Empowerment Day gives WIT members 'exclusive access to the industry’s best and brightest who can help them on the path to their success'. 

The event is for entrepreneurs, manufacturers, inventors and business owners who want to grow their business in the area of toys, games, licensing and entertainment.

In partnership with Walmart, WIT is offering pre-qualified participants the opportunity to pitch their product to Walmart buyers onsite.
