“Each year artists and designers come from around the world to exhibit at Licensing Expo,” says Jessica Blue, vice president, Licensing Expo. “Retailers and manufacturers attend the show to find top creators, innovators and collaborators in character, contemporary fine art and graphic design. Licensing Expo is the place for any artist looking to take their brand into new product categories and territories.”
The annual event is organized by UBM Advanstar and sponsored by the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association.
Exhibitors in the Art & Design zone at Licensing Expo will include Almart Fine Art, Debra Valencia, Bentley Licensing Group, Giordano Studios, Jenny Foster, MGL Licensing, Suzanne Cruise Creative Services, Wild Apple Licensing, Wild Wings Licensing and Zolan Company.

J’Net Smith from All Art Licensing will host the Resource Center and report on deals and events, assist attendees in navigation of the art area and provide valuable connections for licensees, manufacturers and agents seeking to license brands from Art & Design exhibitors.
Other activations in the Art & Design area of the show floor will include a live painting demonstration by Robert Holton from Drizzle Studios!; graffiti artists Kreashun will produce a billboard sign during the course of the Expo; Art Moose will be interviewing exhibitors and streaming live video footage of exhibiting artists' work from their booth; and performance art demonstrations from Stephen Fishwick, represented by Get Down Art, who will paint live to music several times daily throughout the three-day event.
