As New Year approaches, and holidays are round the corner, the whole team of Kazachok wishes you all a very happy holiday season, wherever you are in the world.
May 2010 brings everyone happiness and good health and most of all, may 2010 see the end of the recession and an upturn of the economy!
Under difficult circumstances we do feel our trade remains optimistic and dynamic. Perennial properties such as classics or even "nostalgia" licenses are on a roll if you refer to the different market analysts - an emerging European tendency. For instance little Europeans will be discovering new versions of characters we are already familiar with such as Babar or Maya the Bee. Not doubt that the 3D makeover they underwent will turn them into tomorrow's heroes. The field of environment is a complex area where properties are having a difficult time settling in, but we believe that more ecological products will continue to emerge in 2010. Vampires have taken teenager hearts by storm. Why, how and for how long? Will it be a lasting trend?
Those are some of the questions we will be answering in the first International issue of Kazachok International Licensing Mag’ which will be launched in January 2010. With the goal to create interactivity between all of the European markets, the magazine will offer the readers a big picture of the International Licensing business.
In the meantime, we wish you all a festive season and we hope the New Year will be off to a great start!
