Toy Fair networking drinks is great success

Popular event was hosted by Progressive Preschool and Aardvark Swift after second day of show.

Last night’s Toy Fair drinks meet up organised by Progressive Preschool and recruitment specialist Aardvark Swift was another great success.

Execs from toy and licensing companies, as well as licensees and retailers packed into The Hand and Flower following the second day of the show (Wednesday January 23), for an evening of informal drinks and networking.

This marked the eighth year that Progressive Preschool – as well as sister title The Licensing Source Book – has worked with Aardvark Swift on the successful get-together.

Rob Willis, publishing director at Progressive Preschool and The Licensing Source Book Europe, said: “We’re only too pleased to once again offer hard working exhibitors and buyers a chance to have a drink on us, and unwind for a few hours after another busy day at Toy Fair.

“The event continues to be a go-to for many Toy Fair attendees.”

Ian Goodall, md at Aardvark Swift, added: “As a specialist recruiter to the fantastic toy and licensing trades, it’s a pleasure to be able to offer something by return to the great candidates and companies that I work with. It was another great turnout and it was great to see everyone there.”
