With the rising spend on experiences, consumers want new ways to engage with a brand's story and characters through location-based entertainment, whether that's in theme parks to museums exhibits; from pop up experiences, to cruise ships. This session will explore the benefit to brands of going experiential, highlighting case studies across visitor attractions and live events, and cover how licensors can get in on the LBE action.
