WMM Publishing serves its customers with excellent events and publications for special interest topics.
Tom Wellhausen and Sebastian Marquardt are German-based publishers since 1998. Their German publishing house is market leader in several segments of Very Special Interest Media, such as rc modelling, bread baking or teddy bears. Furthermore, they host the world’s greatest teddy bear show in Germany. In 2017 they established WMM Publishing in the United Kingdom and took over Hugglets Publishing with UK’s greatest teddy bear shows and the worldwide known Teddy Bear Guide. It was the first step to serve the British market with excellent events and media for special interest topics.
In 1989 Hugglets organised the first British Teddy Bear Festival in London which drew together over two thousand collectors and businesses. The event proved so popular that Hugglets Teddy Bear Festivals have been staged annually ever since. There are currently two events – the Winter BearFest in February and the Teddies Festival in September – both held in London’s Kensington Town Hall. WMM Publishing continues this success since 2017 an added a new format with the Hugglets Online Festival during the Covid pandemic.
