The Inventors Workshop

Uniting the architects of the next generation of play
Publish date:

The ToyNews Inventors Workshop returns, this year bigger and better than before.

Have you got a great idea for a toy, but no idea on how to get it to market? Then this year's Inventors Workshop is for you, charged with the mission of uniting the architects of the next generation of play.

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

More than 40 of the most innovative and influential toy and game manufactures, technology companies and financial houses will 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.

One track will be aimed at absolute beginners with panels, talks and keynotes focusing on the nuts and bolts of inventing. An alternative track will cater to more experienced creators and those who attended last year’s conference.

This year’s talks and panel sessions will cover a range of topics including The Importance of Innovation, How We Made It, Working With Tech, A Beginner’s Guide to Funding, How to Manage a Successful Kickstarter Campaign, The Perfect Pitch, Toy Safety, Legal Know-How, What Retail is Looking For and Journey of a Toy Craze among others.

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

What to expect from this year's Inventors Workshop

Last year’s Workshop helped unite the UK’s toy and game inventor community and gave them a rare chance to pitch their ideas to some of the world’s biggest companies face to face. Well, we’re doing it again, and this time it’s all set to bigger and better. Billy Langsworthy reveals what’s in store this year.
