The second annual summit will boast a new, larger location.
The NYC Licensing Summit will return to Manhattan on March 2-3, 2017, in a new, larger location, following the success of this year's sold out event.
Developed by License! Global magazine in conjunction with the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers' Association and UBM Americas (organizer of Licensing Expo and Brand Licensing Europe), the 2017 NYC Licensing Summit will take place at the Marriott Marquis hotel in the heart of New York City's Times Square.
"The positive response to the inaugural NYC Summit earlier this year was overwhelming," says Tony Lisanti, global editorial director, License! Global. "There is clearly a strong demand for an event like this that brings together the licensing sector's thought leaders in an intimate setting designed for networking and knowledge sharing. We're looking forward to expanding the event next year with another top-tier slate of speakers and even more networking opportunities."
The 2016 inaugural NYC Licensing Summit, which took place in early March in Manhattan's Financial District, featured more than 18 distinguished speakers from companies including Target, Global Brands Group, YouTube, the NFL, Nickelodeon, Beanstalk, Hasbro, Cherokee Global Brands and more.
More details on the 2017 NYC Licensing Summit will be announced in the coming weeks. To take advantage of early bird registration and stay up to date on other developments, sign up for e-mail updates at LicenseMag.com/NYC-Summit.
