Mojo Nation has dated its Play Creators Festival 2021, a three-day event boasting conferences, pitching sessions, awards and networking opportunities for those working in the world of toy and game design.
Taking place at London’s Stamford Bridge from September 6th – 8th, the full line-up of Play Creators Festival events are:

Tuesday September 7th – Play Creators Conference (London’s Stamford Bridge)
Tuesday September 7th (Evening) – Play Creators Awards (London’s Under the Bridge)

Should the ongoing pandemic mean that in-person events are not possible come September, Mojo Nation has plans in place to convert the events to virtual.
“We’re hopeful that this year’s event can be a welcome return to in-person networking, learning and pitching, and we can’t wait to bring the industry’s creative community together,” said Billy Langsworthy, co-founder of Mojo Nation.
The Festival will kick off with the Play Creators Meet Up. This opening night party sees the toy and game design and inventor community meet for a night of networking, drinks and quizzing.
The Play Creators Conference will return on Tuesday, September 7th. Designed to inspire the industry’s creative backbone, the Conference will boast a line-up of exciting speakers from across toys, games, licensing and the wider worlds of design.
The night of Tuesday, September 8th will host the Play Creators Awards, at London’s Under the Bridge. Celebrating the achievements of the toy and game design community, returning award categories includes Toy Designer of the Year, R&D Team of the Year and Invention Studio of the Year, along with a brand new category for 2021: Inventor Relations Exec of the Year.
The final day of the Play Creators Festival welcomes the return of the Mojo Pitch. Taking place on Wednesday, September 8th and available to both professional inventors and design studios – as well as newcomers – the Mojo Pitch has cemented itself as one of Europe’s leading pitching events for the toy and game design community.
