On the back of a successful in-person return for Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, BLE has opened for online visitor registration.
Bringing together thousands of leading retailers and manufacturers for three days of deal making, networking and trend spotting, the show returns to ExCeL London from 20-22 September, 2022.
Over 120 companies are already confirmed to exhibit, including Hasbro, Mattel, NBCUniversal, Magic Light Pictures, Acamar Films, The Pokemon Company, The Smurfs and many more.
Informa Markets svp, Anna Knight, commented: “It was essential to bring BLE back as an in-person event last year – this industry is highly creative and collaborative and relies on face-to-face networking as well as the ability to experience brands first-hand so we can’t wait to return event stronger this September.
“We saw some great quality attendees there – and at Licensing Expo last month – including H&M, Pull & Bear, Primark, Asda, and so many more, which shows the strength and growing appetite for brand collaborations and licensing. For 2022, we can’t wait to bring the industry back together again and help to drive the conversations that lead to the creation of innovative new products that consumers love. This year’s fashion theme aims to showcase collaborations first-hand and will let retailers and licensees experience brands and products in a more meaningful, engaging way.”
