Selection of exclusive presentations from the sold out NYC Licensing Summit to be made available online.
License! Global magazine is releasing some of the most popular sessions from the inaugural NYC Summit: The Business of Brand Licensing in a special video series that will kick off April 6.
Among the companies that will be featured in the Video Series are Hot Topic, Hasbro, Global Brands Group, Cherokee, the NFL and more.
"When the event sold out in February, we realized what an appetite there was for this kind of content," says Tony Lisanti, global editorial director, License! Global magazine. "In making some of the core sessions from the Summit available for those who couldn't attend, our hope is to continue the conversation over the next several months heading into Licensing Expo this June. The licensing sector is experiencing a pivotal period of growth and change, and that's what we want to continue to explore with this video offering."
The NYC Licensing Summit Video Series is being sponsored by Licensing Expo, which will take place June 21-23 in Las Vegas, Nev.
The first session to be released will be the Retail Forum featuring Cindy Levitt of Hot Topic, which also includes a joint Q&A session with Gaye Dean of Target. Other sessions that will be made available in the next few months include those with Simon Waters of Hasbro, Dow Famulak of Global Brands Group, Henry Stupp of Cherokee, the Sports Panel with executives from the NBA, NFL and NFLPI and many more.
Sessions will cost $59 each for one year of streaming access or $129 for a monthly subscription that will include unlimited access to all available videos.
The inaugural NYC Licensing Summit took place March 1 and 2 in New York City's financial district and was developed by License! Global magazine in conjunction with its parent company UBM Americas and the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers' Association.
