The final day of the Play Creators Festival sees the inventor community come and pitch concepts to 30 different toy and game firms at the Mojo Pitch. Taking place on Wednesday, September 9th and available to both professional inventors and design studios as well as first-timers, the Mojo Pitch has cemented itself as one of Europe’s leading pitching events for the toy and game design community.
“Our third annual Play Creators Festival promises to be the biggest and best yet, with more opportunities for designers to pitch, network and enjoy deserved recognition than ever before,” said Billy Langsworthy, co-founder of Mojo Nation.
“Once again, space is strictly limited at our Mojo Pitch, and we only have a certain number of speaker opportunities available at the Play Creators Conference, so if you want to get involved in 2020’s Festival, don’t hesistate to reach out!”
