In light of growing concerns and risks associated with the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19),

Licensing Leadership Summit

is rescheduled for November 5 and 6.

The Licensing Leadership Summit, which was originally set to take place March 16 and 17, will still be held at the same location, the Hilton Midtown Manhattan in New York City, New York.

The decision to postpone the Licensing Leadership Summit, which is organized by the Global Licensing Group (GLG) at Informa Markets, follows guidance of the

World Health Organization

(WHO) and careful consideration from Informa Markets’ Managed Postponement Program. As the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, staff, and the surrounding community is the utmost priority, the GLG has concluded that rescheduling Licensing Leadership Summit to a later date is a vital choice given recent COVID-19 developments in New York City and the surrounding areas.

“Attendees can be assured that we are committed to bringing the same high-quality Licensing Leadership

Summit to New York this fall,” says Anna Knight, vice president, Global Licensing Group, Informa Markets. “We believe the Summit remains a premier opportunity for the licensing industry to meet as one to work through challenges and build the future of the industry, thus, we will proceed with the event in a safe manner later in the year. At this time, our thoughts are with those that have been directly and indirectly affected by COVID-19.”
