Quotes

"Some of what the smaller players are working on is making us larger retailers sit up and think differently about the way we are operating."
"We are absolutely delighted with the reaction our first ToyNews Women of the Year event has had," said Lisa Carter, publisher of ToyNews. "Gerbie was a more than worthy winner and completely epitomises just what we were trying to highlight when we first launched our search for the top women in the UK toy business."
"We offer over 50 destinations, so we are able to put the best, most relevant offer in front of people," she says. "The approach is quite subtle as it's about presenting you with a banner ad related to what you've been searching for elsewhere already."
