An opening ceremony in memory of licensing veteran Kelvyn Gardner took place on day two of Brand Licensing Europe.
Anna Knight, vice president, licensing, Informa Markets, welcomed BLE attendees and exhibitors to the Color for Kelvyn Day. Michelle Gardner, Kelvyn’s wife, thanked the crowd for attending, spoke of his dedication to the industry and how he would be impressed with the licensing industry wearing color in his honor. Their children Regan and Eliot were also in attendance.
Other honors for Gardner include the renaming of the BLE License This! competition, which you can read about here.
