Pyramid’s commercial director on what he’s looking forward to in licensing this year.
It’s mid-February, and the licensing industry has already collectively visited Hong Kong, London, Nuremberg and Birmingham for the first run of industry trade shows in 2018.
But what else will the upcoming months hold?
We asked some industry faces to share their highlights for 2018, on both a professional and personal level – from new movie launches and tackling fresh business sectors, to cycling and running challenges and even taking up golf.
Today: David Wootliff, commercial director, Pyramid International
“Where’s my crystal ball? Hoping that we have a clear plan for Brexit. I feel we still have high levels in ‘uncertainty’ and I’m guessing we may still be in a Euro mess (a shame it’s not an Eton mess).
“I’m massively looking forward to the Han Solo movie, finding out about Han’s claim that his Millennium Falcon “made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs” and understanding how he became the lovable rogue that we all adore.
“Licensing will continue to be our focus at Pyramid and we shared some of the great new products and innovation that we are delivering for 2018 at Spring Fair.”
