Tickets are priced at £85 plus VAT for Licensing International members and £125 plus VAT for non-members and can be purchased online, here. 

"We are thrilled to be hosting the opening night party for BLE 2022," says Maura Regan, president of Licensing International.

We promise it's a party not to be missed!"  

“When it comes to getting business done, networking is critical to the licensing industry who, as we all know, are a hard-working and wonderfully sociable bunch,” added Anna Knight, senior vice president of licensing, Informa Markets. “These three events on BLE opening day are brilliant opportunities for everyone to get together, reconnect, make new connections or just let their hair down and have some fun after a busy day of meetings.”
