Taking place this time next week, tickets are now available for The Sustainability in Licensing Conference 2020 (SILC), which will be held digitally and running across two days – Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 November, 2020.
An essential for any business which deals with licensed product, SILC is set to deliver a full agenda of keynote speeches, panel discussions and exclusive research findings, designed to help the licensing community drive sustainable growth within their business and the industry as a whole.
“While all our personal and business lives continue to be disrupted by Covid-19, taking SILC onto a digital platform means that we can all continue on our sustainable journey,” commented SILC curator and conference director, Helena Mansell-Stopher.
“The commitment we have engendered in SILC, as evidenced by the fabulous line-up of speakers and official supporters, highlights the collective drive for change on the sustainable front while also being aware of the commercial realities.”
The Sustainability in Licensing Conference has also received the support of original eco-activists The Wombles, who were brought out of hibernation earlier this year to spread their positive message of local environmentalism.
The full agenda and speaker line-up can be seen here and incudes leaders from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Tesco, Asda, Marks and Spencer, Teemil Tech/Rapanui Clothing, Retail Economics, Central Saint Martins, Breakdown Plastics, Wastebusters, Kids Insights and the R&A (The Open) Sustainable Sporting Events.
Using the respected Hubilo digital platform, attendees will be able to watch the presentations in real time, request video meetings and make the most of the chat function to network with other delegates. All talks and presentations will remain online and accessible until Sunday 29 November. Attendees from the party sector include Rubie’s, Smiffys, Amscan and more.
Companies which have pledged their support to SILC 2020, underlining their commitment to change within the industry, include Amscan, BBC Studios, Brandgenuity, Change Plastic for Good, Character World, Discovery, Dreamtex, GB eye, Global Brands Group, Hasbro, MDR Brand Management, Natural History Museum, Smiffys, TDP Textiles, Those Licensing People, University of Oxford, ViacomCBS, and Warner Bros.
