The winners of The B&LLAs 2022 industry awards were announced at an event held at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel in London, as reported by LicensingSource.net.

“While we are all very well aware of the current challenges and global upsets that fill our daily lives, it is also good to reflect that these B&LLAs awards recognize and reward achievements over 2021 – a year massively affected by Covid – of just how resilient the brand and lifestyle licensing sector has showed itself to be, forging a powerful connection with the public,” says Jakki Brown, director, Max Publishing.
