Sustainability in Licensing Conference to take place digitally

It has been confirmed that the Sustainability in Licensing Conference 2020 (SILC) will be taking place digitally and running across two days – Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 November, 2020.

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.

Online booking for tickets is now live.

“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 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.

The digital format of the conference, (which is being organised by Max Publishing in conjunction with Helena, who is also the founder of Products of Change), replaces the physical event that was due to take place at the British Library in London on 25 November.

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.

The cost of attending SILC 2020 is £95 (+VAT) per delegate. Bookings can be made by clicking here.

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. Consumer Products.
