Greetings from the Moomin Licensee Meeting in Tampere

The international Moomin Licensee Meeting was held last week in the newly opened Tampere Hall in Tampere, Finland bringing together people who manufacture, sell or license the Moomin products. Besides the seminar, the attendees had an amazing possibility to visit the recently opened world’s only Moomin Museum.

This year nearly 200 hundred licensees from the Nordic Countries and Europe attended the meeting to hear news from the brand owner and other licensees. Thank you for the great and inspiring day and night!
