Message from Anna Knight, VP, Licensing, Informa Markets

On behalf of the Global Licensing Group, I wanted to extend my personal thanks to the licensing community for their patience as we navigate these unprecedented times. We appreciate that communication is more important than ever and with constantly changing environments in many countries worldwide, we owe it to you, our customers, to update you as regularly as possible on what’s happening with our events in 2020 and beyond.
 

We will therefore be updating this website at least every two weeks with new information and encourage you to bookmark this page or subscribe to our Global Licensing Group newsletter to receive updates directly to your inbox. 

If, at any point you’d like to talk to a member of the team, please feel free to reach out to us. We are available through email, phone and video-conference and would be happy to connect. If you’d like to speak to me directly, please email [email protected]

 

UPDATES ON GLOBAL LICENSING GROUP EVENTS

After close consultation with our industry partners, customers and community around the world, we’ve made the decision to postpone Licensing Expo 2020 until May 25-27, 2021.
 

We’d like to thank all our customers and partners for their support, open discussions and encouragement. As everyone has been reminding us, the need to connect with partners, colleagues and the licensing community is greater than ever, so, in partnership with Licensing International, we will be delivering a series of multi-platform events through the remainder of the year, starting with Licensing Week Virtual on June 15-19. For more information visit licensingweekvirtual.com.


More details on other events will follow in the next few weeks. Please bookmark this page or subscribe to our Global Licensing Group newsletter to receive updates directly to your inbox.

 

GENERAL

Is Brand Licensing Europe still confirmed for October?


Brand Licensing Europe is still scheduled to go ahead as planned from 6-8 October at ExCeL London. We are currently mapping multiple scenarios to ensure the event provides our exhibitors and visitors with the safest and most productive event experience in line with any advice or guidelines from the World Health Organisation and UK government, alongside ExCeL London and our other contractor partners. 

If we are unable to proceed as planned, we will communicate this to all participating customers NO LATER than two months before the scheduled event. 

If you would like to understand more about our current plans, please contact [email protected] or speak to your account manager if you are a current or prospective exhibitor.

What will happen to by booth/stand/sponsorship purchase if Brand Licensing Europe or Licensing Leadership Summit is unable to take place in 2020?

All contract fees will be rolled over to 2021 without penalty and participating exhibitors and sponsors will be able to sign a renewal agreement for the same stand location, number and size or sponsorship package. Any alternative arrangements should be discussed with your account manager.

What are the dates and venue for Licensing Expo 2021?

Licensing Expo 2021 will take place May 25-27 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas. 

Is Licensing Leadership Summit still confirmed for November?

Licensing Leadership Summit is still scheduled to go ahead as planned from 5-7 November at New York Hilton Midtown.  We are mapping multiple scenarios, including virtual content options, to ensure the summit can proceed safely and deliver the best possible experience for all attendees and sponsors. 

If we are unable to proceed as planned, we will communicate this to all participating customers NO LATER than two months before the scheduled event.

I still want to connect with the licensing community before October 2020. What are my options?

We are working on a range of events – in-person and virtually - as an alternative to Licensing Expo and more details will be announced shortly. The first event has already been announced – Licensing Week Virtual - taking place on June 15-19. 
More information can be found at licensingweekvirtual.com and attendee registration will open on May 18.

If you’d like more information about the format of the event or how you can get involved, please contact [email protected].
