“As ever we remain positive and completely focused”

As we approach the end of the year, asks a selection of licensees from across various categories what their one biggest hope is for Christmas (professionally and personally) and what they are most looking forward to in 2022.

Today: Andrew Downie, commercial director, Dreamtex.

“My biggest hope for Christmas is that all the product that is planned reaches the consumer on time and that this year we can have a party we can look forward to. On a personal note I’m just hoping for gin!

2021 has been yet again a year full of challenges, with a combination of Brexit and Covid continuing to throw up obstacles and logistics being an issue for all of us importing consumer products. As ever we remain positive, completely focused and are very much looking forward to 2022.

We are most looking forward to sharing our exciting new designs that we have been working on behind the scenes, as well as introducing some fresh new brands and classics to our extensive portfolio.

Our product development team have also been working on some new innovations that we can’t wait to share with our customers, so 2022 for us will definitely be an exciting year. I’m very much looking forward to doing face to face meetings with licensors and customers again; I will be no longer hindered by the Wifi in Chorley, just the weather!”
