TOY & GAMES FIRMS, BRAND OWNERS AND SERVICE COMPANIES….
Looking to unearth your next hit product or work closer with toy and game inventors? The Mojo Pitch puts you infront of the global design community. You provide us with a brief, outlining desired categories/concepts, and then delegates pitch their toy ideas and board games to you within your own private one to one virtual meeting.

 

INVENTORS, DESIGNERS AND INVENTION AGENCIES…
Have an idea that you’d like to pitch to some of the world’s top toy and game firms? Buy a ticket to the Mojo Pitch and we’ll schedule you pitching opportunites with firms best-suited to taking on your concept.

“Mojo Pitch was a great experience. For us it was the perfect opportunity to get to know designers we haven’t had contact with. It will definitely not be our last event.”

Bernd Keller, AMIGO Spiele
