Unpacking and preparing to follow up the great contacts we made. It was good that all the exhibitors were on one level. Are people to lazy to walk stairs, if they do not have too? This year I was involved as a judge with LIMA’s competition aimed at companies new to licensing. The organisers helped by giving them guidance to previous submission and the presentations from all six shortlisted properties were excellent. Well done, Odd Cats and Animals!
Next year it will be at Excel and I hope the Elizabeth Line will be up and running to bring visitors swiftly from central London and buyers from Europe a stop or two from City airport. Everyone seems to miss the tube from Earls Court and to finds the overground connections slow and confusing. So a show venue local to us should be better.
At the show we launched two new projects and collaborations so II think I’ll post about those individually wit new os the response they generated.
It was a good show. Trade shows still have a place.
