“This is a huge year for BLE,” says Ella Haynes, event director, Brand Licensing Europe. “We are celebrating our 25th birthday and have got lots of exciting plans in the pipeline to thank everyone who has supported the show over the last quarter century. It’s been an amazing journey, and we feel honored to have spent 25 years as the biggest meeting date in the European brand licensing calendar, helping thousands upon thousands of European retailers and manufacturers to discover brands to partner with and create much-loved, best-selling consumer products.

“We’re also following in the footsteps of an amazing show last year, which attracted record retailer numbers and a 28% increase in both total visitors and attendees from France, Germany, Italy and Spain – numbers we’re hoping to grow for 2024 to further cement our position as THE European brand licensing event.”
