Can an inventors’ track-record be a key factor in buying decisions? Should there be more knowledge-sharing happening between these two areas of the industry? Are publishers doing enough to shine a light on their inventor items? All these questions, and more, are tackled in this Buyers & Inventors panel session.
The panel is chaired by Mojo Nation’s Billy Langsworthy and features Leila Nosrati (Product Acquisition & Inventor Relations, Master Toy Advisors and former director of merchandising at Toys R Us), Mark Thoma (VP of Business Development at Buffalo Games and former director of merchandise buying at Target) and Lucy Benham (Partner and Buyer of Games & Gifts at John Lewis).
