Friendly Unofficial Networking (F.U.N.) launched a series of successful in-person networking events this week in Las Vegas to complement the Licensing Expo 2023 trade show.


The week of F.U.N. events kicked off on Monday (June 12) with a Monday Pool Party in the beach bungalows at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Pool. The bungalows were hosted by Striker Entertainment, Most Management, Reemsborko, Toikido and Studio2pt0. The day party consisted of informal networking, pool food, frozen drinks, and inner tube rides on the lazy river. The informal pool event was packed all day long with guests dropping in and out between meetings and summits.


On Tuesday night (June 13), F.U.N. organized the traditional Official Unofficial After Party in The Foundation Room at the top of the Mandalay Bay. The cocktail party was co-hosted by Striker Entertainment and Bioworld Merchandising with drinks and appetizers sponsored by Bioworld Merchandising. The sold out event was a hit with partygoers dancing into the early morning hours.


Additionally, throughout the Expo, F.U.N. distributed Licensing Expo 2023 themed BINGO cards with prizes for the winners including F.U.N. Stickers, F.U.N. Pins, and FTs (F.U.N.gible tokens). Keep an eye out for future F.U.N. events around San Diego Comic Con in July, L.A. Toy Previews in September, and New York Toy Fair in October. F.U.N. was created to provide licensing, marketing, entertainment and retail industry colleagues easily accessible in-person networking opportunities.
