In 2016 our CEO, Alessandro Belloni, had the honour of representing DeAgostini EMEA at the annual Disney Publishing Worldwide event – part of the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. Four licensee awards were presented during the prestigious event, with DeAgostini EMEA receiving the Product Innovation Award.

DeAgostini was presented the award for its production and distribution of the collectible 1:1 model replica of the legendary Millennium Falcon, which is now available in 15 countries around the world, including the UK, France, Germany, and Japan. DeAgostini has sold over 4 million copies of the product to date, which is delivered as 100 issues containing the model components and comprehensive build guides that make it a simple and engaging project for scale model makers of all ages.

This really puts the name of DeAgostini in the spotlight for all the right reasons. A marvellous achievement and everyone involved should feel very proud of this achievement.... Well done DeAg, keep up the great work you do....

This is fabulous news and quite and honour for DeAgostini. As Kev says quite a poke in the eye for the competition :)

I had no idea the Millennium Falcon was as popular as it has been, over 4 million sold, I wonder what the next closest partwork is to that for sales.
