Today’s consumers shop differently than they did 20 years ago, and retail trends will only continue to evolve as time moves forward. One brand that has successfully been able to navigate the changing winds of retail is “Sesame Street” and Sesame Workshop.
With 50 years of brand equity, Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind “Sesame Street”, has found the sweet spot in harnessing its iconic appeal while collaborating with relevant, like-minded brands.
In an upcoming session at Licensing Leadership Summit, learn how “Sesame Street” took their collaborations to the next level by partnering with the direct-to-retail apparel brand Bombas to drive incremental revenue for both companies while sharing a commitment to bring awareness to the issues of family homelessness.
The panel discussion will be led by Emily Hofstetter, chief of staff and vice president of communications, Bombas and Gabriela Arenas, vice president of licensing, North America, Sesame Workshop.
In addition to working alongside the CEO on business strategy, Hofstetter leads the brand's PR strategy. Under her guidance, the business development team has fostered partnerships with Flywheel, GAP, (RED), “Sesame Street” and the Muhammad Ali Brand.
At Sesame Workshop, Arenas oversees the strategic development, direction, and implementation of the consumer products licensing and venue merchandise activities across all major categories of goods including toys, apparel, home furnishings, stationery and gifts.
Collectively, both executives will highlight how they worked together on Bombas and “Sesame Street” collaborations and navigated the DTC space. Join them at Licensing Leadership Summit for their panel, “Finding Your Future in DTC.”
