Early Bird rates now available for Second Annual executive conference.
Registration is now open for the Second Annual NYC Licensing Summit, which sold out its inaugural event earlier this year.
The 2017 conference, which will take place March 2-3 at the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square, will again focus on the business of brand licensing with a high-profile roster of speakers across fashion, entertainment, sports and corporate brands.
Topics will range from global business opportunities and the changing world of entertainment to the influence of celebrity licensing and sports licensing to new fashion trends and the growth of location-based entertainment, what’s hot at retail and what Wall Street thinks about it all.
Two high-level speakers have already been announced as part of the 2017 program: Ken Wyse of PVH Corp., the world’s third largest licensor; and Perry Wolfman of CAA-GBG, the world’s largest licensing agency.
More speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. The 2016 NYC Summit featured executives from Beanstalk, NFL, Nickelodeon, Target, Hot Topic, YouTube, Hasbro, Authentic Brands Group, Global Brands Group, DreamWorks and more.
“The overwhelming response and success of the first ever NYC Summit will undoubtedly carry over to the 2017 event,” says Tony Lisanti, global editorial director, License Global, and moderator of the NYC Summit. “It will once again be a must-attend event for licensing executives and retailers who want to meet industry insiders and who want to know the latest trends and insights that will drive new business opportunities in 2017 and beyond.”
Early Bird tickets for the 2017 NYC Licensing Summit are now available for $995 through Dec. 15 and LIMA members get $100 discount (contact your LIMA representative for the promo code).
The 2017 NYC Summit is being developed by License Global magazine in partnership with UBM, organizers of Licensing Expo and Brand Licensing Europe, and the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association, the industry’s leading trade organization.
